vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Thanks to STLWill for sharing this interesting beer. Pours murky brown with a beige head. The aroma has maple, bourbon, brown sugar, candied yams, toasty malt and some abv heat that works for it. Fairly heavy body with a nice amount of soft carbonation. The flavor starts with lots of toasty malt, maple, soft heat, apples and a bit of wateriness. The finish has some apples and heat. Nice interesting beer.

LtDan (1743) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a soapy gathering of suds at the top. Leaves tons of lacing on my goblet. Aroma: Maple syrup, baked yams, caramel,molasses,bourbon. All throughout, lies a sturdy wood and herbal hop note with every sip. Taste: Vanilla, wood, funky twang, maple syrup, candied yams, cinnamon spice and hop spice. Mouthfeel: Very warm going from my mouth to my stomach. Low but perfect complimentary carbonation. Very thick. Overall: I liked this better than the original 2008 batch. Very complex, enjoyable and inviting. The wood and bourbon notes play well with the aggressively sweet Autumn Maple.

Bottle via a trade with kegbear, thanks Craig! Pours with a fading off-white head over a hazy amber body. Aroma has a ton of wood in it followed by spice and yams, with cinnamon sugar cookies. Taste is cinnamon, yam and a light tart note. Oak and lots of bourbon. Syrupy mouthfeel, and light bubbles.

Sweet sweet treat courtesy of TampaBrew. Pours amber with thin off white head. The aroma begins sweet and malty with notes of sort of vague syrup moving into maple syrup, broiled yams, mild winter spices and a modest amount of bourbon. Frikin’ smells great. The taste begins sweet, as expected, with malts, molasses and maple syrup. It quickly becomes very yamy with tasty tidbits of roasted to caramelized yams then oak and bourbon taking this to the finish. What a pleasing mix of notes here. I love the way I’m getting roasted to burnt yams that really create a great flavor.
