750ml bottle. Muddy orangish brown brew with a slight off-white head. Aroma is great - baked yams, vanilla, bourbon, and spice. The 13% abv is very much there as this is somewhat of a booze bomb but still has a lot of great flavor. Nutmeg, sweet potatoe, brown sugar, and wood. Really wish I had put this back for a bit but still incredibly tasty.

75cl, at 10%Vol, as Autumn Maple (with sticker ’100% Barrel Aged’), new exclusive American brew Anno 2009, with Maple syrup, thx to Jeppe!, complex brew, spicy/alcoholic and slightly woody/vinous, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, good brew, yet very expensive!

thirdeye11 (5479) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2011
(750ml bottle thanks to Dixonian) hazy deep brown, nearly milkshake opaque like, ring of creamy tan bubbles. Nose is extremely rich and decadent, bourbon, sweet potato/marshmallow pie, straight alcohol, and vanilla. Taste of wood, alcohol, yams, brown sugar, whiskey, and vanilla. If it wasn’t so ridiculously bourbon/alcohol laden, this would be fantastic. As it is, it needs some serious aging. The beer itself is pretty awesome though.

bottle courtesy of thome50, thank you for this long sought after whale! Good stuff, the barrel and the base beer play well together. i felt like it was a little more balanced than most of the ba offerings from the bruery, which was nice. still a big bourbon profile upfront, but the base beer smoothly comes through in the middle and back, nice transition.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours deep dark red with a small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has mild smoke, sweetness, oak, vanilla, plums, rye bread and strawberries. Light vinious. Lowish carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel. Kinda light mouthfeel still. Flavour is pleasantly soft, light smoke, some spicy rye, vinious, raisins, dry, grainy, light liqourice. Soft and delicious. Certainly an example of how a barrel-aging can improve a beer.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Bomber. Dark maple pour with some head. Nose is all kinds of fall goodness and should be replicated into a car air freshener. The base beer for this is phenomenal. Spices galore with yams, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and everything that a fall beer should be. The bourbon adds another couple of notches to this experience. One of the best I have ever had.

Poured from 750ml bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma is sweet potato pie with a nice amount of bourbon. Taste is sweet with flavors of vanilla, sweet potato, cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice. I am a big fan of the base beer. This variant adds to that great base beer, just dialing up the flavor and adding the element of vanilla and booze. Love it.

Bottle. Pours a nice dark brown color, with a small tan head. Aroma is filled with spices especially cinnamon, along with a yamm-like character, lots of rye and bourbon too, along with oak, vanilla and maple syrup. The flavor is filled with oak and bourbon, with lots of rye and spices like cinnamon, along with the yam and maple syrup character, brown sugar, molasses and vanilla. The body is medium with a sugary sticky mouthfeel. Overall a really nice spiced ale, and a interesting break from the pumpkin ale tradition.

I believe this batch is 14%. Dark dark amber brown, with swirly off-white light tan head. Lots of yams, sweet malts, caramel, bourbon sweetness, vanilla, and maple syrup. Pretty tasty.
