2011 version bottle. Pours a thick, viscous black. Had to check if this was really Autumn Maple. Aroma is barrel vanilla, slight spice and some clove. Taste is barrel and yam all the way. The spices are muted and make the barrel play a key role. Nice stuff.

This is really nice. Bourbon-Thanksgiving aroma. Yeah. Works well. Yams and squash out in force.

Booze massages the back of my throat as Fall spices and bourbon do the heavy lifting. Nice balance of flavors here. Delicious!

Very very different beer, Sweet and sour flavours mixed very differently. Head is small, flawing pieces inside of amber colour liqiud. Nice sweet and malty flav... Very nice beer. Tasted at Belgium.

Pours deep brown and stays that way with a small off white head. Nose is vanilla, pumpkin and yams, little soy sauce and wood. Taste is sweet, with very little bitter, the barrel took this beer in the wrong direction imo. I know ba beers should be sweet but this one is just to much so. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, body is heavy and the finish is long.

30 nov 3012, bottle. Dark amber and faintly cloudy. Nose is really sweet maple, faint bacon (?), faintest of tartness. Thin body but syrupy at the end, faintly fizzy. Sugary cereal malt, maple syrup, raisins, sugary alcohol. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one poured a murly brown color with a beige head. Aroma was a good amount of bourbon, some brown sugar and yams, lots of caramel too. Flavor was pretty sweet, lots of bourbon taste, but not much in the way of burn, brown sugar and maple blend well with the bourbon and the yams make a slight appearance as well. Solid.

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle thanks to drowland’s going away tasting (previously thought it was the normal, informed it was barrel aged). Pours a murky honey amber color with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of maple syrup, roasted malt, and spices. Taste is like breakfast oatmeal with maple syrup on top. Nice beer overall with good balance.

McGrupp612 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Murk brown pour. Small tan head that quickly recedes. Nice aroma of bourbon, oak, maple, holiday spices and molasses. Flavor is yam, bourbon, spices and a little bit of maple. The flavors are well integrated and sweet. Alcohol heat and big oak dry out the sweetness on the finish. Medium to full body with ample carbonation. A totally different beer than the regular autumn maple. Yum!

Very good beer. This is a welcome addition to the beers made especially for the fall. Most are the Pumpkin beers, which I am getting tired of. This maple, yam, and spices are great. I will drink this all year if it is available. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
