3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small sample pour to a shaker at the Windy City Distributing annual expo. The color was a hazed, brown/amber, with modest, off white head foam that reduced quickly to a ring and film, and left light spots of lacing at best. The aroma was maple sweetness, spices, and bourbony alcohol. The flavor was a little sherry-like, bourbony alcohol warmth, full bodied, syrupy texture, with modest carbonation. A very enjoyable sipper!

Poured from a bottle and thanks to Greg for this one. Murky brown with minor carbonation and a very thin white head which quickly dissipated. Sweet aromas and spice on the nose. Prominent flavors of yams, maple, and bourbon. Alcohol heat pretty apparent and feels higher than 10 %. Full syrupy mouthfeel. Intersting beer but not psyched on drinking too much of this one.

Thanks to Hopscotch. Pours a dark brown with boozy oak and vanilla aroma. Flavor is sweet with a kick from the bourbon. Great stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep reddish brown with a nice lacing head.
The aroma is spicy with lots of poorly integrated bourbon notes and prominent bready malts.
The flavor is just more of the same. Big malty sweetness, a range of spices, not always in harmony, and quite quirky bourbon notes. The finish is mildly bitter and sweet with notes of spices, bourbon and alcohol.
Full-bodied and sticky.
I can’t really get a grip on this beer. Not overly impressed, but it’s certainly better than the regular Autumn Maple.

Flaske 0,75l spandert av – og delt med Skinnyviking under hyggelig besøk hos ham 19 Feb 10. Dyp rød – nesten sort på farge. Litt skum men det flater fort ut. Aroma av plommer & rosiner. Søt. Smaken er plommer & svisker. Søtlig bitter ettersmak.

Sample at Woodshop. Forgot who popped this, but thanks for doing so. Pours a muddy peach color with a very thin off white ring. Nose was big on canned yams, bourbon and baking spices. Flavor was sweet potato pie, bourbon and again some baking spices. A nice thought, I think the base beer is too sweet as it is....
