Brewed with Munich malts and a delicate blend of Bavarian hops, our Autumn Ale is a full-bodied treat with a nutty-sweet middle, a warming alcohol level and notes of toasted grains. A pre-winter winner.

nOT ONE OF Breckenridge’s better beers. Nice dark color with a average head. No flavors stand out very much. Slight alcohol finish.

deep brown color; nice roasted malt aroma; a medium bodied beer with bready, caramle malt flavors; more of a brown ale than an Oktoberfest

Good autumn brew. Very malty and amber in color. Enjoyable but not my type of brew.

Meh, not quite sure what the deal is here. Not what I would consider a fall seasonal and a rather mild watered down one at that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice, understated beer. Roast malt with a hint of dark chocolate and some kind of herb I can’t place. Pours black with mocha head and lacing. Medium bitter finish with hint of sweetness. Tap at GBD.

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - FEB 19, 2014
12 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 11/11/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a small fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, raisin, plum, pear, biscuit, toast, chocolate, light roast, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, raisin, plum, pear, biscuit, toast, light chocolate, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, plum, raisin, pear, biscuit, toast, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Minimal carbonation and medium bodied; with a very slick, moderately creamy, and fairly bready mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a decent old ale. Good balance and robustness of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and smooth to sip on for the abv. Could use more carbonation. Pleasantly enjoyable.
