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 (1685) - 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 Im 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 Bruerys tasting room. Theres a lot going on with this beer. Its 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.

Tap at The Bruery for RBSG. Thanks to the Bruery for pulling out all of the stops for us! The pour is black to deep ruby. Medium carbonation to low. Spotty lace. Nose is fresh autumn spice, Old Bay seasoning, sugar, herbal tea, seasoned steak. Very interesting. Taste is herbal, minty, small bitter chocolate. Lemon and malic acid finish. Very odd beer- not the typical pumpkin stout flavors. But very enjoyable.

Draught at the brewery with RBSG. Deep brown liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of spices, milk chocolate, pumpkin. Way too spicy for my taste. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of spices and milk chocolate. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Waaaaaaaay to spicy for me.

Bottle shared amongst friends. I love pumpkin beers! I wont hide it one bit. This one has a lot of good qualities that come in a great pumpkin beer. Great pumpkin spice aroma and slightly sweet flavor. More of a dessert beer but definitely awesome!

Draft at te bruery tasting room with Linh. Pours a deep brownish black with of brown lacing. Aroma is an incredible blend of spice, pumpkin, floral flavors and cinnamon. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of pumpkin, cedar, oak and spices. The cedar here wins it for me.
