The Bruery Autumn Maple
On my last pass through New Jersey, I picked up a bottle of The Bruery Autumn Maple. The beer has a dark brown color with a lofty and bubbly tan head. The aroma is sweet and malty with maple accents. The taste is shock-on-the-tongue sweet at first with maple syrup taste and a bit of molasses and nutmeg. The beer finishes with a raisin and fig bitter taste. It leaves the mouth a little dry due to the nutmeg. The alcohol content is 10% ABV. It took a few sips to get used to the sweetness, but overall it was a really good beer and very enjoyable. I definitely wouldn't recommend drinking more than one of these in one sitting due to the sweetness, but it was an enjoyable beer.
