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.

Bottle shared by mymrnngjckt at a recent tasting. Tasted side by side with the regular Autumn Maple.

Pour was dark brown with a decent head, good retention.

Smelled of sweet, candied yams with a ton of maple and vanilla. The bourbon was here but the vanilla was the dominant element from the barrel. Sweet with a bit of spice but very pleasant.

As nice as the nose was...wow. This was absolutely tasty as hell. No other way to say it. Sweet but not cloying, with lots of caramel, sweet potatoes, brown sugar. Sweet bourbon and vanilla as well. Some pie spices. Amazingly smooth and incredibly tasty.

Mouthfeel was a very smooth, creamy medium-full body. No bothersome alcohol heat. As sweet as this beer was it was not cloying at all.

Wow, this beer was exceptionally good. So flavorful and the bourbon just took the base beer to another level. I could drink an entire bottle of this myself. Delicous stuff.
