(bottle - 750 ml) Golden pour with a thin white head. Sweet and spicy aroma with a lot of yam notes along with maple syrup. Flavor definitely has that yam and spice note with a smooth caramel and light nut backbone. The maple is very heavy and overpowers the rest of the beer. Very sweet with a ton of maple syrup notes. Not very well balanced. ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2010
Deep red color with a medium-sized off-white head.
The aroma is very perfumy and spicy with notes of earthy yeast and malts. Weird.
The flavor is sweet and spicy with notes of leaves, malts, toffee and caramel. Quite toasty. Ends with some bitterness, alcohol and earthy/perfumy notes.
Full body, quite a lot of carbonation.
This was a strange one. Very spicy nose, but not so much in the flavor, which was positive. It got a little better after a while in the glass, but still mostly weird. sactodd (18) - Citrus Heights, California, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Pours a slightly murky dark amber, with a two finger light tan creamy head. Immediate spicy aromas grab the nose, followed by a sweet carmel-like yam scent. Taste starts with a tickle of carbonation on the tongue follower by lovely spice (slight clover/hint of cinnamon), then yam/carmel/maple sweetness that finishes with a nice Belgian style visit of sour before it melts on to the back of the tongue to finish with a nice alcohol heat, and revisit of spice. This is an amazing beer, great balance, and the flavor profile works on so many levels. JulienHuxley (5807) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 8, 2010
Bottle, thanks to Harry. Aroma of maple, wood, yams and cinnamon. Similar to whiskey. Flavor is wood, molasses, somewhat tart, with a maple finish . Palate is creamy with lively carbonation. Interesting and unique. dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Pours reddish brown with a nice creamy head and ok retention. Mild lacing and oily appearance. Syrupy aroma of maple syrup, yeast, and cloves. Tastes yammy ( ha ha). Really it was sweetish, with some bitter on the long finish. Clovey spices and yeast in the middle. Alcohol is present, but not overwhelming, Nice.

This beer from a bottle and the pour was dark brown with some moderate off white head. Sweet malty flavors and caramel. Can taste the sweet yam flavor. Alcohol pretty well hidden. Pretty good beer. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 24, 2010
Pours a two finger cream head that fades quickly to a ring leaving traces of lace. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Cloudy brown/amber color with a ton of yeast left in bottle. Nose is maple syrup. Flavor is sweet maple syrup, malts, spices, hints of yam and alcohol. Not cloying. Pricey at $12.45 for a 750ml bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA. mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - APR 24, 2010

750ml bpttle. Pours a deep red, thin head. Aroma is incredible. Spicy pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, sweet malts, slight roast, brown sugar, nutmeg. Mild spicy taste. the yams really come through. Sweet candy sugar? Hides the ABV very well. A great winter sipper if you ask me and one of the top pumpkin beers around.
