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.

andersand (529) - Malm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2010
Clear dark brown with a small beige head that leaves some rather nice lazings on the snifter used. Nose is extremely spicy and sweet, intense and rather straightforward. Flavor is spicy, sweet and warming, almost hot alcohol. Ends on a suprisingly dry and spicy note. Creamy and a bit sticky mouthfeel with rather sharp carbonation.. Too spicy for me, really weird one..

Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby with a medium sized light beige head. Sweet pumpkin pie, vanilla, caramel, whipped cream, spice, maple syrup, candied bananas. Smells like pie. I like pie. Medium bodied, sweet and full of spice. Caramelized yam flavors. Finishes up with more sweet pie flavors. Tasty, and not as overpoweringly sweet as the BA version I had a while back.

The aroma is malty, spicy (cinnamon, nutmeg), maple not as strong as i had expected), yeasty, sweet potatoes. The appearance is slightly hazy orange/brown, off-white head. The flavor is spicy, yeasty, maple syrup. The finish is spicy, nutmeg, light hops. The mouthfeel is carbonation, slick, the body is medium thick. This beer most closely resembles a belgian ale. Not bad at all.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2010
Hazy reddish amber with a small, slightly lacy head. Aroma of berries, maple syrup, caramel, some alcohol. Flavor of caramel, syrup, cinnamon spiciness, Medium to full body, medium carbonation, a bit sticky. Cant quite hide all the alchol, but maybe its not even intended. Not bad in its class. 7-3-3-7

ben4321 (5889) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Location: 750 ml bottle from Gillys, 2/5/10

Aroma: The nose has lots of spice, some maple syrup, and some caramel malts
Appearance: Pours a dark hazy reddish color, with a thin off-white head
Flavor: Its somewhat sweet with a lot of spice to it, yam/pumpkin flavor is there too
Palate: A medium bodied beer with a soft carbonation, and somewhat oily texture
Overall Impression: This one definitely didnt need to be consumed too cool. Once it warms to a reasonable temperature it becomes a pretty solid beer. There is a good amount of spice to this one. I liked it, it isnt the greatest, but it is pretty solid.

Bottle shared with Ben4321: Aroma smells of sweet potato. Appearance is a dark brownish red. This beer always needs to warm up. Strong yam taste. Alcohol is covered up pretty well. I am always interested in trying The Bruerys beers, but they might be better in small amounts.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2010
bottle consumed 10/11/2009. hazy pour of rich amber-reddish-brown with a soft tannish head. tons of spice on the nose... traditional pumpkin pie spice (especially nutmeg and clove) along with yeast, earthy sweetness, malt, molasses, a little vanilla and a touch of tartness. it is a very warming rich aroma. the palate is surely on the sweet side... definitely a sipper but it fits for what they are going for... candied yams are too. flavors of cinnamon, yeast, maple, faint molasses, toasted nuts, cardamom, yammy earthiness and a surprisingly clean finish. there is a touch of sourness on the end which is a bit strange but it helps break up the sugars. full bodied fo sho with slick carbonation and a creamy texture. alcohol is only noticed in the belly. 8/5/7/3/16/3.9

Skinnyviking (9110) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2010
Bottle. Low and quickly disappearing off-white head. Hazy amber body. Mild berries spicy mape aroma and flavor. Although pumpkin has hot been used that is how it smells ! Low carbonation and a long aftertaste.

On tap at the 2009 Great Pumpkin Festival, Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge MA on 31 October 2009. Hazy red/orange colour. Sweet and rich aroma, very reminiscent of maple syrup. The maple is extremely evident in the flavour too, together with some sweet nutty notes - rather like Nutella spread. Rather too sweet for me, with little in the way of balancing bite. Spicing is agreeable and doesnt dominate too much. Not unpleasant but a bit of a one trick pony and not particularly to my taste.
