Bottle. Pours murky opaque brown with a small tan head that dissipates fairly quickly and leaves some lacing. Aroma is bourbon and very malty - toffee, molasses, dried fruits. Flavor is much the same, really seems like a different beer than the original with the tannic yamminess fading into the background to be replaced with a bourbon maltiness. A bit of spices still show through to provide some complexity. Medium sweet, some woodiness but no real astringence. Full body, creamy. Quite tasty.

Bottle 750ml @ The Bruery, Placentia, CA
Pours clear dark brown with a few off-white bubbles. Aroma has notes of malt, toffee, alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, oak, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long warm, oak, vanilla and toffee finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

Bottle at the taproom. Slightly hazy, amber in color, more or less headless. Woody, light vanilla aroma with maple syrup and caramel. Not as much alcohol as in the other Autumn Maples. Sweet, warming and full bodied, with maple syrup, caramel, some woody hints and a spiced touch. Really wonderful this one. Would certainly like more of it. 130811

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!

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
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.

Blairgus (2614) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2012
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
