The big sister to our Bonita Applebum Apple Pie Brown, Muy Bonita is a bigger, badder ‘bum. This double brown ale flaunts a bodacious body and a stunning combination of real cinnamon, vanilla, and apples. So thick, she’s like a hip hop song.

Draft... Murky dark brown ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, khaki head and decent staying power. The nose provides loads of graham, cinnamon, caramel & vanilla. It’s reminicent of those deep-fried apple pies from McDonalds back in the day. There’s also some alcohol nipping at my nose. Full-bodied & fatty with tickling carbonation. The flavor also offers an array of components associated with those deep-fried apple pies, but apple skins, alcohol and hop bitterness cut nicely through the graham and apple sweetness without dumbing-down the abundant fruits, spices and malts. Finishes sweet and decadent. It’s so much richer and brighter after hitting room temperature, so I’ll take my sweet time with my next glassful - which is coming right up. If I was a bigger fan of apple pie, and the alcohol was a bit more tamed, this baby would be totally knocking it out of the park for me. Delicious nonetheless.

22 oz. bottle via trade a while back. Homer, maybe? Someone else? Doesn't matter now, I guess. I accidentally aged this one a year, against the warning on the label I just now noticed. Whoops. Pours a clear mahogany with a finger of off-white head that settles into a ring and film, leaving spots of lace in the glass. There's more apple in the aroma and more vanilla in the flavor. Light cinnamon in both, with caramel, chocolate, and earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a chewy, very sweet mouthfeel. Doesn't quite hit as hard as some of the other super sweet adjunct-heavy FB stuff, but it's interesting.

22 oz bottle shared by a friend, thanks Tyler! Dark brownish black with light tan head. Aromas of caramelized apples, brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon, spice. Tastes of baked/caramelized apples, cinnamon, spice, caramel. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Interesting.

Tasted from bottle against the BA version. Clear brown with slight reddish tinge. Beige head. Aroma of cinnamon and vanilla. Flavor is where the apple comes through with cinnamon and vanilla. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with average-sized creamy brown head. Sweet malty aroma with vanilla notes. Sweet flavor with distinct cinnamon note, with some vanilla and subtle apple. Medium bodied and very tasty.

Bottled. Pours dark brown. The aroma is toffee malt. The palate is creamy and full body. The taste is awesome. Cinnamon sugar vanilla extract with a hint of apples. Nice beer.

Funky Buddha’s beers are know for unfailing originality. Muy Bonita delivers on that promise even if goes just short of blowing your hair back. Color is dark brown. Vanilla, brown sugar, spices, and fruit on the nose. Flavors of cinnamon, caramelized fruit (mildly tart apple), and vanilla. The flavors weren’t as rich as I like with my sweet tooth, but there’s a lovely cohesive balance to this beer. It drinks pretty smooth with a bit of warmth that hits the back of your tongue. Really nice.

(Thanks, Brandon! Clownoisseur) Bottle. A- Green apple, tart, vanilla. A- Dark brown color, cloudy liquid, off white head. T- Green apple, tart, vanilla, subtle spice. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, balanced finish. O- Okay, I’ve had much better from FB though, especially along the specialty lines. At over a year old, I just don’t think this ages well. Okay, but far from great.

Braun trüb, kein Schaum, Apfelkuchen in der Nase, voller süßlicher Körper, Zimt Apfelkuchen im Abgang. Sehr trinkbar

Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a glass. Clear dark brown with small off-white head. Aroma is cinnamon, medium body, little carbonation, and little lacing.

Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 9, 2017
No aroma a canela aparece mais que maçã, em segundo plano chocolate e café. Faltou um pouco de corpo, mas no geral é bem equilibrada.
