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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home with friends. Pour is slightly murky with a small frothy tan head and good lacing. Big caramelly, maple syrup, cardamom, vanilla, sweet potatoes, vanilla, and toffee in the aroma. Taste is bourbon, sweet brown sugar, dark fruity, oaky, earthy, raisins, somewhat tangy, and light alcohol on the backend. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. OK.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.
