750ml bottle from last year’s release i believe. seemed like a good time to try this one given the season... pours a mostly opaque, deep cola hue, consistent throughout and topped with a creamy fluffy light rententive khaki head... aroma of pumpkin and spices, cardomman (sp), cedar, and light roasted chocolate malt also reside... flavors are more of the same with creamy pumpkin, carraway seeds, rye bread, and smooth cocoa, a light woody additive feature from the cedar is also detected. flavors are semi-sweet in nature, with a creamy and silky body with not a whole lot of bitterness. spices seem pretty assertive still even with a year or so of aging. couldn’t drink too much of this in one sitting but it does hit the spot for fall.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head. The aroma is strong with spice, pumpkin. A nice inviting beer for autumn. The taste is fall in a bottle. Very nice beer for the season. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with nice off-white head. Quite sweet with some bitter notes. Aromas of toffee with notes of caramel, orange, allspice and nutmeg plus a whole lotta clove (too much). Medium to full bodied with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Short, dry finish.

Barreras (969) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Pours a rich black color with a spicy aroma of celery and potpourri. Taste is initially lika a V8 drink, which changes to a spicy pumpkin, then ends to a potpourri of spicy herbs. An intresting beer that tickles the palate.

A pumpkin milk stout with spices aged on cedar, Finally! Severe carbonation makes this one a challenge to pour but leaves a solid black liquid with a creamy foamy tan head that takes forever to recede and litters the glass with webs of lace. Smells like a cigar box mostly. Heavy cedar aroma with hints of vegetables are really all I can find in the aroma. I thought cigar city had the lock on over cedar-ed beers, but apparently the Bruery is right up there too. The flavor is sweet at first with a hint of chocolate and caramel before the cedar takes over. Earthy, spicy, woody, and herbal with barely a beer to counter it. Medium body with an insane level of carbonation and a sweet tannic mouthfeel. ?Uhm yeah I’m not sure what this was supposed to be, but there is a good chance that we are not going to be able to finish this bottle. Too much cedar!

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Taster at The Bruery’s tasting room. There’s a lot going on with this beer. It’s got a ton of spice and pumpkin to go along with bitter chocolate hop character. This is not one to drink between the sours and lighter palated beers like I did. Just crazy unique beer.
