look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: chocolate-brown, thin sudsy head, healthy lace.

S: spiced and roasted nuts, it smells exactly like fruitcake, raisins molasses, allspice.

T: all the flavors from the nose, walnuts and raisins are really pronounced, also figs, dates, plums. Finish is boozy, lots of bourbon and oak.

M: light- to medium-bodied, burning alcohol finish, virtually interchangeable with a sip of whisky.

O: tastes more like Christmas pudding than Christmas pudding does, pudding coated in brandy/bourbon. Really delicious, I'd just as soon eat it.

Graciously shared by and with Dyan last night. Was expecting this beer to be pretty good, but was in fact amazed by the quality and innovation this beer showed.

AM pours a fairly dark brown color with OK head retention and light, sticky lacing. The beer doesn't look all that impressive, but then I stuck my nose in the glass. Good lord! Houston, I believe we have achieved lift off. The nose in this beer is incredible, and included an aroma profile of vanilla, sweet potato/yams, pumpkin pie, cinnamon and nutmeg. The sweet, spice laden aroma profile is just stunning in this beer. On the palate, this beer is every bit as impressive, as I now got chocolate, brandy, more pumpkin pie, cinnamon and vanilla.... all on a fairly sweet frame. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a long, rich, sweet finish. Drinkability is terrific in this beer, especially considering the sweetness, abv. and boatload of spice. While you wouldn't go gulping it down, it was no trouble at all drinking down my 10 ounce glass.

This beer pushes the boundaries and is an absolute tour de force by Bruery. As Dyan noted in his review, this beer blows the regular AM completely out of the water. Very, very impressive.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: Pours amurky brown with fall colored highlights and hues, with a frothy tan head that fades slowly, great retention, providing great lacing

S: Yammy, warm, bourbon, spicey and hella good. Very inviting nose..

T: A healthy dose of bourbon initially then the base beer flavors just rush in. Loads of yams, spices, sweet potatoes, light pumpkin and some maple. Like Fall in a glass.A nice sweetness, bourbon and hint of vanilla midtaste which sordove transitions to a carbonated, somewhat dry, yet warm and sticky sweet finish

M: Medium-full body, well carbonated, evidence by feel, weight and appearance. A nice, warming and flavorful beer coats the palate

O: Hot damn. I enjoyed the shit out of this beer!
