Bourbon barrels to Autumn Maple. The regular version is awesome on its own, so what could adding liquor to the mix do to the beer? On-tap at the source itself, on to the beer:

Colored almost like autumn itself. Brown with orange hues and an accent of red. A short lived head on top, which drops to a lace around the glass. The aroma brings some aspects of Autumn Maple, yams and spices being prevalent, and the added characteristics of the bourbon barrel, booze and syrup. I could probably add this to my waffles for a change.

With so much of the barrel aged character in play of the beer's taste, it tastes like I have a small glass of yam liquor in front of me. There are traces of cinnamon and allspice to lift the experience. We have a big portion of sherry, as well of alcohol which acts as a two way street; it dampens some of the sweetness, but also perhaps being spoiled by The Bruery's ability to mask high alcohol beers, I get a good dose of strong alcohol. Still, it remains a very good beer. It's a full bodied beer with a smooth texture, but with a boozy character.

Autumn Maple with a twist. Sometimes you need a twist from ordinary, and the barrel aged version accomplishes that while maintaining greatness.

Split with rudzud and a bunch of people at a cellar cleaning party.

Decent creamy smaller head, hazy dark murky brownish red color.

Nose vegetable, ketchup, some sweet candy malts and brown sugar, touches of barrel and vanilla like, but not great.

Taste sweet candy, toffee and caramel, syrupy, little barrel notes, touch vanilla barrel, with lots of candy malts, bit of warming booze, etc.

Mouth is heavy, syrupy, decent but lighter carb, some warming booze.
