3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ The Bruery. Murky dark amber pour with a small off-white head. Smells like their anniversary beer. Tons of maple syrup, vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Nice chocolate, dates, and a hint of pecan pie. Slight butterscotch. Flavor is quite sweet. Tastes of butterscotch, caramel, and maple syrup for the most part. Slight tartness of raisins. Some dates, plums, and a nice vanilla note. Mild chocolate and nuts. This seems okay fresh, but I don’t see this getting anything but worse.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, pours a filthy dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is hugely malty, with loads of bourbon barrels and caramel. Flavour is similar, with highly sweet caramel and bourbon barrels that accentuate everything. Fairly yeasty as well which muddies things up a bit. Good, but needs some refining.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Caramel and tons boozy notes with some coconut. Hazy gold with a decent beige head. Butterscotch, stone fruit and booze. Not bad, but a bit too much booze.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a murky orange-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, dark fruit and malt. Full-bodied with a sweet and boozy bourbon character and notes of caramel malt and dark fruit. The finish is sweet with a bourbon and malt aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Poured a deep brown color with an averaged sized of white head. Woody (more in the aromas), bourbon (more in the tastes), vanilla, caramel, and some fruitiness. The alcohol will creep up on you (and it did on me the next morning when I woke up with a headache!).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. Weird combination of flavors, another Bruery beer that I don’t understand.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber pour, tan head. Flavor is sweet up front, some raisiny notes, honey, toothpick, cereal grain, doughy. Interesting if not a bit odd.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a WHOLE lot different than the base, bcause the barrel still is the preveailing component. Maybe a little smaller with a quick earthy shot and touch of tart, but you really gotta work for it. Worthy addition
