3.58/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a snifter. Big thanks to Callmecoon for this. 2011 vintage I believe.

3.0 A: Deep plum black color. Two fingers of fizzy beige head. Head fizzes away like a soda would. No lacing.

4.0 S: Interesting. The bourbon in this smells more like rum. Perhaps it's the spices mixed with the bourbon booze that give this impression. In any case, this has a huge maple syrup presence, even more than CBS. Yams and toastiness next. Loads of spices, but they don't stand out too well individually. Rather, they meld to form one generic pumpkin spice blend. The bourbon adds a leathery earthiness and booziness. This smells good, but I think I like the non-barrel aged version better.

3.5 T: Very surprised here. This seems to be a lot less sweet that the normal version. Usually this would make me quite happy when dealing with Bruery beers, but I loved AM just the way it is. Anyway, the bourbon comes off like a rum again from the spice blend. Lots of yams in the taste. Toastiness and some nuttiness. Maple is less apparent in the taste. Again, tasty, but not nearly as good as the regular.

3.5 M: Heavier medium to ligher heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy. Some amylase coagulation going on in the back of my tongue.

3.5 D: Tasty, but I expected the bourbon to add a nice touch to the base. Instead, it seems that it weakened it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Pours a hazy reddish copper, moderate visible carbonation and a thin off-white head.

S: This smells like a glass of vinegar before I even get it all the way to my nose. Not good.

T: Yup…that confirms it. A glass of acetic vinegary awfulness.

O: This was a drain pour. As was the second bottle I opened. This review was quite delayed in posting - I opened the bottle as soon as I was back in town after the Bruery sent the email about concerns with this particular batch. It had been refrigerated since I received it.

Still, I will update this review after they (hopefully) get the issues sorted out for next years batch.
