3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Woodshop. Forgot who popped this, but thanks for doing so. Pours a muddy peach color with a very thin off white ring. Nose was big on canned yams, bourbon and baking spices. Flavor was sweet potato pie, bourbon and again some baking spices. A nice thought, I think the base beer is too sweet as it is....

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle, no date from the brewery.Pours a murky brown with a small yellowish ring, small bubbles cascading to the surface. Lots of bourbon and sweet potatoes in the aroma with some caramel--wow this blends very well. Actually reminds me of sweet potatoes baked with marshmellows. Flavor has the sweet potatoes being a little less sweet, and the barrel a little stronger and drier. Semi-dry, minimal bitterness. Just a little spicy. Big full body with light carbonation. Very nice.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared by Tooch4321...thanks Adam! - Pours brown with a reddish tint and a thin ring of white head. Aroma is pretty sharp--alcohol is pretty hot and sweet, with--well--not much else. Taste is sweet bourbon, rich malt with a spicy pumpkiny twinge. But damn...it’s sweet and big and hot. Not my thing. Syrupy with little carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks pantanap! Pours a murky dull darker brown with a sudsy small head. Love the aroma, sweet maple, rich but smooth, winter spices, the sweet yam thing is very cool, very yammy. Flavor follows but is a bit duller, seemingly watered down, sharp maple almost cloying, not as yammy as the aroma. I just like to say yammy. Medium bodied, watery, no carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml via trade. Dark mahogany with a thick, beige head. Aroma of bourbon, yams, cinnamon and maple. Flavor is dark dried fruit, bourbon/alcohol, sweet maple and some light pie spice. Medium to full body with a long boozy finish. This one is really good, all the components are represented and come together really good.
