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.

Pours a murky dark orange with an initially thick off-white head that thins out after a while. Aroma has some spicy accents to it with a hint of nutmeg and sweet potato pie. Flavor has some sweet yam notes, a hint of spices with nutmeg being the most prominent with a hint of cinnamon and the finish gets pretty boozy. Nice thick mouthfeel. Wife brought back to me from Orlando.

Growler from Whole Foods in Katy. Clear reddish-amber with a cream colored head. Aroma of funk, dark fruit, bubblegum, clove, and nutmeg. Tastes rich, lightly spiced and a little sweet. Fairly full bodied, quite smooth and slightly dry.

gripweed57 (1439) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2017
750 ml bottle. Hazy orange copper color topped by a large rocky beige head. Aroma of caramel, yams, cardamom and maple. First sip is sweet dark sugar, dark malt and spices. Sweet caramel and spice throughout. Hints of nutmeg, cinnamon and maple syrup. Warming alcohol in finish. Overall, a decent fall seasonal and a slight departure from the plethora of pumpkin brews.

Smells strongly of sweet potatoes, syrup, butterscotch, pumpkin pie spice and is slightly boozy. Brownish reddish rust color with a thin off white head. Funky taste, almost like a farmhouse ale. The nice aromas do not come through in the taste, least of all the yams. Metallic aftertaste with a booze burn, very thin palate. I really dont like the way this tastes. I had high hopes, but was very disappointed.

Its what youd expect from a Belgian-influenced beer in terms of its malt & yeast qualities, but the molasses, maple syrup, & spice give this beer that distinct Fall seasonal character. Yams not too pronounced, but maybe Im mixing that with the malt & syrup combo. Regardless, its a solid Autumn offering from The Bruery; decent price for a 750ml bottle and tastes superior to many pumpkin beers!

It pours amber with with an off white head. The aroma has meaty yams, rich roasted malt, Abbey yeast and nuttiness. It has a rich body with lots of prickly carbonation. The taste has more Belgian Abbey notes. Good.

Clear golden brown pour with a thin cream colored head. Aroma is sweet maple syrup, spice, bread, and booze. Taste is bread, nuts, sweet syrup, spice and somewhat vegetal. Some boozy heat. Medium body with some lively carbonation.

Tap at gravity. Mahogany with small head. Wonderful aroma of maple and spice. Flavor follows, with some apple pie spicing. Caramel. Really nice dessert beer.

Sampel w Chmielarni na Marszałkowskiej. Aromat to karamel, landrynki. Smak słodki, w smaku suszone owoce, cukierki. Brak syropu klonowego.

Bardzo przyprawowe, fajna dynia bez dyni. Szkoda że w tegorocznym tak mało syropu klonowego.
