Bottle at home. Dark red pour. Almost no carbonation. Smells of sweet potatoes, pumpkin and cloves. Taste is very unique. Sweet, cloves, brown sugar and maple syrup. Bretty finish but is not overpowering. I like this beer a lot. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle sharing during AZRBWG. Pour is hazy burnt caramel with a white head. Aroma shows notes of belgian waffles, yam, pineapple, nutmeg, maple, vanilla, and a good dose of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of oak, molasses, and some underlying vegetal character. hopscotch (11409) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle … Fantômepalooza 2011… This beer rocks!... Murky toasted caramel ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aromatic highlights are sour cherries, oak and caramel. Medium to full-bodied with gentle carbonation. The flavor is sour and fruity; backed up by plenty of alcohol warmth. Tart, tangy, fruity finish. World class bottle of beer supplied by Blazer06!

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Great beer. The sweet maple character is present, but the brett eats into it wonderfully so that the beer is never too sweet. Strong but not boozy. A very creative beer, executed well. cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2011
25oz bottle, T-day beer #2. Pours out a slightly darker orange/brown hue, good carbonation. Aromas are elegent, I was looking for funk, but got a nice light spice. Palate is really really sweet both on the entry and finish. I think the mid is overwhelemed between the nutty almost pecan pie like entry, then it hits into a lush pumpkin pie texture. Super heavy and thick, dessert like, but while being high ABV its not brought down by it.

Bottle via Provisions. Much more tangy and crisp than the regular version. Tons of yam and spice still in the brew but more muted compared to the "normal" variate. My favorite of 2011 for Autumn Maple. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2011
(750ml bottle). Pours a hazy orange-brown color with soapy off-white head. Aroma is yams, earthiness, spice. Sweet with a touch of sour twang. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky. I really liked this one. Haslinger (985) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2013
750mL bottle shared with kegbear, pours a nice red brown, smells like a fresh baked pumpkin pie with a hint of booze thrown in, the taste is sweet yam, just like some delicious southern sweet potato pie. Some sweet molasses in the finish. Tastes like Thanksgiving dinner should be. Wonderful beer! Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle at Andy and Max’s fantasy tasting. Bottle shared by Al B! Given to him by the head brewer at the Bruery over 1 year ago. Pours a slight hazy deep woody amber with a nice lingering head. Aroma is nice yams, earth, and brett funk (although the brett is still restrained and not out of controll)- spicy phenols, earthy, fall leafpile, and marshmellow vanilla notes with some wood. Flavor is caramel, toffee, light burnt notes, woody, earth and brett funk with still quite a bit of starchy yam going on. Finish is still not dried out completely and the brett still has some work to do- smooth and mostly clean. NIce! kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle. I liked this version of Autumn Maple better than the normal version. It was less sweet and the earthy yam flavor seemed more pronounced to me. Really good.
