Bottle:   Dark caramel, very dirty and thick, small sudsy off-white head, little lacing.   Soured nose, very faint autumn spices.   I was told this was infected and/or on its way, and yep, its seems a bit busted.   Does also have a sweet caramel and spiced yam background.   Oaky sourness right up front, slight notes of spiced yams, brown sugar, and molasses.   Its not the spicy Bourbony beer I expected it to be, and I understand the infection was not intended, but its still an interesting beer.   The 13% is well hidden, but I would liked to have the chance to taste the nice Bourbony beer that was intended.   Big lactic sour finish, which dominates everything.   Some aspects I don’t mind, some I wished hadn’t occurred.   Interesting even if it wasn’t intended.   Thanks Rob!

Hazy murky dark reddish brown in color... Aroma of sour vinegar, caramel, brown sugar.... Flavor is incredibly tart, notes of bourbon, caramel, brown sugar, yams, and spices... Probably one of the better overtly infected BA beers I've had... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djd07 (3879) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle thanks to Will! Pours a cloudy orange red with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is maple, oak, and tart. Light booze and rye with tart finish. Somethings off with this one.

Peacehammer (622) - California, USA - DEC 23, 2013
dark reddish color. Bourbony oak, and spices on the nose almost competing with each other. The bourbon nicely compliments the beer and accentuates the spices of the beer nicely, and adds an awesome vanilla character.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Tap at The Bruery thanks to BMan1113VR! Pours clear deep ruby, nice lower foam. Nose is cherry candies, big twizzlers. Taste is bigger spiced yam, denser sweet potato comes through in a barleywine type of base beer. Heavy dessert beer density. Not cloying though with some good flavors detracting from all the sugar.

wchesser (1244) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle from fullobs. ’11 bottle on Thanksgiving ’13. Cloudy toffee brown. Boozy bourbon dominated nose with some earthy gourd/sweet potatoes. Booze, earthy gourd, some rye spice and worthiness, and very light pumpkin spice, more booze. Worked good with a combo pumpkin/pecan pie but a little was enough. Just too boozy, unbalanced, and not as rich and full on palate as I expected. We didn’t come close to finishing the bottle between 4. Shame.

beerbastard (726) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Had this on Thanksgiving. 750ml bottle from the Bruery. Pours reddish brown. Well balanced aromas of toasty malts, wood, Bourbons, and caramels. Slight wood sourness along with all the mild sweet malts, Bourbon, and toffee. Perfect balanced flavors. Finishes with a bite and is warming. Very good!

Wow! This beer knocked me on my ass! It wasn’t what I expected at all. Super sweet, with hints of raisins, resin, and syrup. Very complex and the alcohol content is hidden nicely. Highly recommend!

DesertDevil (542) - Arizona, USA - NOV 13, 2013
2013 bottle. Oddly sour nose of vinegar, sour mash, spiced yams, caramel, some burnt sugar, and light oak. Pours a slightly hazy dark ruby-brown with no head. Delicious taste of maple syrup, moderate bourbon that provides the right amount of booze, sweet brown sugar, toffee, and light caramel. Medium body that holds on well to the barrel-aging. A gorgeous beer all around.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Pours dark thick pumpkin amber with a smaller beige head. Aroma brings big earthy yams with a subtle spicy sweetness. Flavor brings the earthy yams with a unique off sweetness and some malty amber endings. There is spice from the rye casks as well, especially lingering on the palate.
