This beer is made in the pumpkin beer tradition, except instead of pumpkins we used yams, and lots of them! A big Belgian-style brown ale of 10% ABV, this one is bringing pumpkin beers (or yam beers) into new territory.

Defreni (3081) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 9, 2010
Flaske: Rdbrun klar l med et hurtigt forsvindende skumhoved. Duft af krydderier og en smule ahorn. Smagen er kold domineret af sdme fra ahorn siruppen, men som llen varmes op kan krydderierne tydeligt smages, henad dansk glgg. Ok l og fint udfrt men en tand for sd.

marcus (9546) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Pours amber with a rich beige head and a strong vegetable aroma. There is a smooth brown ale flavor with some carbonation and a little spice. The flavor is not raunchy as in some of the other vegetable/herb beers.

Huge thanks to Sprinkle. This was a real treat. Nice pumpking and spices in this beer. Sweetness from brown sugar and caramel. An awesome beer to try

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2010
On tap at Pap. Cloudy brown-orange pour with a bit of creamy tan head. More maple syrup and spice than yam, although the yam is present. A little thinner and sweeter than I would like, but good.

Bottled 0,75 ltr (@Pikkulintu)
Dark (clear) ruby color, steady off-white head. Wheat, banana, yeast, clove and ginger in the nose. Crisp carbonation. Christmas spicey (cinnamon, clove), Belgian yeasts, some molasses, quite alcoholic. Mouthfeel is reasonably balanced, although alcohol is present.

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a medium off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malts, the typical spices found in most pumpkin beers (nutmeg, cinnamon), and sweet potato casserole. The flavor is strong caramel malts, maple syrup, with a hefty dose of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a high level of sweetness, but I expected it and it wasnt cloying. Mouthfeel was medium-full and relatively smooth. I thought this was one of the better pumpkin beers I have had; it was just made with sweet potatoes.

TheBeerGod (6104) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle. Murky copper pour with a tall, foamy, beige-colored head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, sweet potatoes with marshmallow and spice. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, spices, light molasses, candied yams and marshmallow, and yeast notes. Light bitterness here as well. Nice competitor to the pumpkin beers. Fits in very well with them, taste-wise. Body is medium with a strong, prickly carbonation. Ends with more sweet malts, candied notes, strong spices, bitter notes, yeast, yams, caramel, light molasses, and brown sugar.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Bottle. Poured a deep orangeish brown color with a small tan head that quickly disappeared. Nose is spiced with vegetal notes, cinnamon, nutmeg, and yeast are also present. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel and soft carbonation. Flavor is on the sweet side, with big notes of brown sugar and molasses, lesser notes of cinnamon, clove, spicy yeast, and sweet potato are also present. I liked this beer it hides it ABV amazingly well, but it lacks a lot of the complexity and character that its big BA brother has.

Probably a good effort if youre in the mood. I drank it in late winter long beyond when I was enjoying other pumpkin beers and in a significant horizontal tasting with over a dozen beers. So forward alcohol wise that Id like to leave one sit for about 2 years and give it a go.
