Ok, I have been out of the game for a while, been months since i've written a review. But being a new year and a new beer may as well bite the bullet.
A- Pours a deep rubyish brown, very dark, little head the lase the side. This looks like a very syrupy thick beer, what I've come to expect from the Bruery and there high alcohol beers.
S- I get the berries on the nose, almost like cranberry, I get some spices and hints of Cinnamon. That Belgium yeastyness of bananas are in the background, I think this will improve as it starts to warm up.
T- I get a lot of the same flavors from the smell but are more vibrant. Not as Yeasty as the smell is, which I really like. I get gingerbread. I get some toasty chocolate malts in the background at the end, and this kind of blends the alcohol burn that is ever so slight.
M- Good carbonation, I get like a savory taste from this beer, like I want to crave some really salty and rich good, perhaps Xmas Ham, or mashed potatoes.
O- I have had this beer since before thanksgiving I was very overwhelmed that I was going to have to drink this 11% beer, and I was left with a bad taste from Autem maple. Now that I have had this, looks like the joke is one me and I should have had this with my xmas dinner.
Overall I'm happy I wrote this its been a while.

Thanks for tossing this my way scottbreaks! Split with the mrs into 2 bruery snifters. Had the BA version not too long ago and dug it.
a - brew pours dark purple/brown with a nice light brown head with really nice retention.
s- nose is fairly festive with gingerbread and old spice over plum.
t - leads with the belgian dark and finishes with the spices afternthey wash over they flavor mid sip.
m - a bit heavy handed on the carb for a bruery beer which aren't usually this fizzy. That said, this is way lighter than your average 11% brew.
o - overall not quite as nice as the BA version, but not bad. Happy to finally pick up where I left off in trying the beers from this series, but aside from the series, these are fairly run of the mill beers from an otherwise phenomenal brewery. I wouldn't hunt it down for any other reason.
