Large shared bottle in Atlanta.
Deep, clear, red brown body with a very good tan head.
Very appealing aroma smells like the item at a bakery I'd want.
The flavor is too sweet to drink, say, a whole pint of this but it is quite appealing in small quantities. Fine choice for a shared dessert beer.

On tap at the Brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Deep murky brown with a nice white head. Thick collar. Kinda pond watery.

Smell - Lots of cinnamon and spices. Some apple and caramel.

Taste - Lots of caramel. Like a caramel candy apple. Cinnamon spice kicks up in the back with a spike a booze.

Mouthfeel - Thick and kinda heavy. Sluggish to drink.

Overall - Pretty accurate treatment, but very sweet.

When BA had individual scores for look, scent, taste, etc, this would have gotten a 1 on scent because it is truly offensive. Immediately poured it smells of feces.....shit, quite frankly. After about 5 minutes it tapers off to cinnamon, ginger snap cookies, sugar and Apple's.

The solution is the flavor is simply fantastic and the new scoring helps. I taste cinnamon, Apple brandy, ginger spice, ginger bread, sweet caramel, nutmeg and a finish of pumpkin. This is very very good and worth seeking out, just wait to smell it for a few minutes.

An imperial version of their Bonita Applebum. Not sure if it's barrel aged, but it's delicious regardless.
Hailed by our table last night as "A little slice of Americana", it indeed tastes like a glass of apple pie. Jason Biggs would have conflicting emotions if he got a chance to taste this lovely celebration of America's experimental brewing.
It's rich and creamy, and the aroma is heavenly. Amazing, the beer is well balanced, not too sweet, just the right amount of spice, and I've never tasted anything close to this in my life (aside from the non-imperial version)
Truly, this beer is one of the great accomplishments of The Funky Buddha, and it's ability to craft beers with astoundingly accurate flavors, while remaining balanced.
No Crust comes to mind in comparison.
You really have to taste this beer to do it justice, words cannot express the feeling one gets when tasting this beer. Apple pie in a glass.
