Pours a hazy, slightly translucent brown with a big tannish head. Smells a touch boozy, a touch sour, combined with spiced, slightly candied sweet potato. The taste has a somewhat harsh boozy, bourbon finish. Tannic oak, bourbon, spiced, dry maple and sweet potato. Slick, medium heavy mouthfeel with lowish carbonation. Overall, this is a really interesting experiment that I certainly enjoy more than the regular autumn maple. There is quite a bit going on, but it is all a bit harsh. I think this might need some time. Fun spin on a fall seasonal without fake pumpkin juice in it.

A- deep brown murky with a small light tan head. Lot darker then the regular version

s- lots of burboun. And barrel smell

T- similar to nose on the burboun and barrel, sweet maple yams vanilla spices nutmeg

m- creamy and smooth low carb

d- easy drinker, but a lot of the flavor from the regular version seam to have been lost. Wish it had more of the flavors of regular. Definetly needs to warm up.

D - Lower carbonation and sweet on the tongue.

O - Mmm... Is it Thanksgiving yet?

Ugly brown, quarter inch head.

Sweet yams, raisin, caramel, honey. Sweet and decadent.

Raisin, vanilla, toffee with rich, thick caramel and bourbon in the finish. Very good.

Light mouthfeel - could be a bit more dense. ABV tastes around 10%.

Sweet without being too sweet, desserty without being too filling, very good little beer here: seek out.

Big Thanks to jdubfl for popping the top on this one.

A: Pours a nice deep shade of dark brown with a small off white head. No real retention or lace noted.

S: Aroms of candied yams, xmas spice, and lots and lots of barrel.

T: The yams are there for sure with hints of pumpkin pie spice. Sweet Molasses comes through along with very subtle chocolate malt. The barrel is huge in this beer. It provides light vanilla and oak, and lots and lots of booze.

M: Medium in body, smooth, rather soft in carbonation.

D: Pretty good, to be honest I think I like the non barreled version better though.
