Grandpa Brians Caramel Apple Pie by Brew Rebellion is a 9.4% ABV Old Ale brewed with Caramel Apple Pie Flavors.

==Introduction==
Got this one at Craftshack.com. After trying many of the Brew Rebellion beers such as white chocolate raspberry and Peanut Butter Jelly for example, this one seemed to strike some flavor chords in my mind. The whole Caramel Apple Pie idea was just damn scrumptious and way too delicious to pass up. So I definitely wanted to get it along with the other goodies I got from the site. Since Brew Rebellion has had a great track record with me, let’s see how true their experiment shines here, cheers!

Aromas:
dark fruit boysenberries, raisins, blueberries, black berries, dates, figs, figgy pudding, strawberry preserves, rye bread, strawberry short cake, rich Butterscotch, Red Apples, Green Apples, Pecan Pie, brown sugar, Rich dulce de leche caramel, vanilla, coconut hints, toffee, walnuts, hazelnut nectar, cotton candy, marshmallow, smores chocolate, cinnamon, Pistachio ice cream, burnt caramel, grilled bananas, clove spice, funnel cake, Stone fruit peaches and Irish cream.

Flavors:
Rich Butterscotch, Red Apples, Green Apples, Pecan Pie, brown sugar, Rich dulce de leche caramel, vanila, coconut hints, toffee, walnuts, hazelnut nectar, Stone fruit peaches, apricots, dark fruit boysenberries, raisins, blueberries, black berries, dates, figs, figgy pudding, strawberry preserves, rye bread, strawberry short cake, cotton candy, marshmallow, smores chocolate, cinnamon, Pistachio ice cream, burnt caramel, grilled bananas, clove spice, funnel cake, waffle cones, buttery caramel popcorn and toasted rye bread.

Aftertaste:
Sweet caramel, caramel, apple pie, cinnamon, earthy notes, dark fruit soaked rye bread and vanilla. No alcohol in the taste, Dark brown crimson medium body, creamy, velvety, syrupy and silky mouthfeel and a sipping drinkability.

Overall:
Holy Malty Bombs Batman!! Is it me, or is it everything I keep trying from Brew Rebellion so far has been damn mind blowing. I don’t get it, but somehow they have mastered some crazy beer flavors of the likes I have not seen other than the Bruery and possibly Belching Beaver and the great extent, Terrapin. I am not sure how they do it but it taste way too close to what they were going for. I love this beer!

Anime Corner:
Shinon/Sinon Asada from Sword Art Online 2 was used in this pairing as I wanted to pair a girl with the color of green apples as green apples are what usually define caramel candied apples. Also, as Shinon’s colors look very similar to camouflage, it goes with the whole grandpa thing as many grandpa’s have stories of war and such but the cool part is they be making some very delicious apple caramel apple pies. Shinon in this pairing contrasts and complements just that. Cheers!
