4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a tulip pint. Nitro-tap.
Hazy amber with 1 finger of creamy head. Low carbonation.
Caramel, bread, brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Bread, caramel and brown sugar. The sweet potatoes take on a flavor similar to pumpkin but is, obviously, sweeter. Light spices of cinnamon and nutmeg round out the finish.
Light-medium bodied, uber-creamy and incredibly smooth. The
nitro pour does this justice.
Whatever category you want to throw this in, it’s a damn good Autumn beer (Or anytime for that matter). Incredibly balanced, easy drinking and delicious! I will be back for more, Vault.
Can. Completely clouded cranberry-orange hue with a dense, creamy sand-colored head. Flavor is what it purports to be--sweet potato (mashed and slightly caramelized) with a cinnamony piquancy and a mild, earthy bitterness. Captures the vegetable well, though it’s not a flavor I think I need in a beer more than once a year. bytemesis (8431) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Can. Pours bright orange with a small beige head and decent lacing. Aroma is pumpkin spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, a bit earthy. Flavor is light plus sweet, quite spiced, earthy. Medium body. Decent sipper. odinstyr (797) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Pours a red-brown with a white head. Smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet potato pie. Taste is sweet, spiced, mildly bitter. pineypower (3328) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Pours out a slightly hazy orangy color with a moderate soft off white head. Aroma is of sweet potatoes, sweet cinnamon, some vanilla bean, light syrupy notes. Taste is complex, nice light silky nitro body, sweet potato casserole, vanilla bean, some maple, light spice. Really solid. Thanks to Jones. raymow (1668) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2015
on tap at the brewpub in Yardley - taste of cinnamon and nice amber color. Heard a lot of people raving about this but I’m not a big fan.

12 oz can served in a pint glass. One finger or so tan head sticks around a while. Little bit of lacing. Aroma is not impressive. A little sweet potatoe and a little yeast. Taste is good. Notes of sweet potatoe and a little carmel and spice. Medium bodied beer with average carbonation. Over all very good. I’m impressed. Nice autumn alternative to the pumkin ales. dmac (6264) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2015
12oz can from pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a nice looking dirty orangey/amber with an average foamy off white head. A/F of dirty potato skins, sweet brown sugar, maple syrup, squash, dry medium toast, plus some cardboard and newspaper aromas. Medium body with soft nitro bubbles. Nice stuff pressboxjoe (464) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2015
On nitro tap at brewpub. Stupendously spiced, more nutmeg than I’ve ever tasted in a beer, looks and tastes very dark. Very sweet, attacks the outer edges of the tongue. Nitro deadens the flavor to some extent of course. Almost like a festbier underneath the spicing. Interesting. I will say that I like the simple graphic design of Vault’s cans. rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2014
tap. hazy amber pink with one finger nitro head. mild body with sweet potato. very smooth. Dogbrick (13019) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 017: Pumpkin-tastic 02 on 10/13/2014. Hazy pale amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt, nutmeg and slight fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet spices, earthy sweet potatoes and a touch of tangy fruit. The finish is sweet with a cinnamon and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.
