On tap at the Michigan Fall Beer Fest. Haven’t had the regular but this was pretty good. It seemed pretty strong but it worked out in the flavor.
Murky amber color with white head. Light bourbony-boozy aroma. A nice moderately sweet ale; fairly dry with a touch of maple.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Tap: deep brown color, murky & nearly opaque with a sickly, gray-tinted layer of film that is gone before I can finish my sample. The aroma is similar to regular Woodmaster - very nutty, full of some light cocoa, brown sugar, & toast, only this time, there’s a good inkling of vanilla, bourbon & oak. I also don’t pick up the big rubbing alcohol aroma I get in the regular Woodmaster. Taste is huge & thick, full of smooth bourbon, wood & nuts, toasty caramel, light brown sugar, & some finishing vanilla. Again, no more rubbing alcohol. Huge improvement over the base beer in my opinion. This stuff is yummy. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of maple, pecans, bourbon, and vanilla. It’s a dark orangish-brown with a small off-white head. The flavor starts with caramel, toffee, and maple. The finish has moderate pecan pie, light bourbon, and vanilla. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, if you like pecan pie, you’ll like this beer.
