A pre-winter winner.

Onslow (1210) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Dark brew with tan head. Aroma of toast, earth, sweet malts. Taste is sweet malts with a little toasted grain, slight bitterness in the finish but still ending sweet. Nice and tasty, good for a cold day.

Breckenridge calls this an old ale but based on taste, I’d probably call it a strong porter. It’s good, it’s just weird they decided to call it an old ale is ale. In any case, this has a thin brown head sitting on a deep brown beer. It’s got a nice roasty nose w/ a hint of raisin and a slighter hint of tart cherries. This is a medium bodied brew w/ moderate carbonation. Taste is somewhat light but w/ a nice chocolate character to give it some richness. It finishes clean w/ some lingering sweetness, roast and dried fruit. Nothing about this stands out as being particularly excellent but everything about it is solid and there’s no off flavors or anything to hurt drinkability. I could see myself downing quite a few of these w/o realizing they are a bit on the strong side so I would imagine it would do nicely to warm you during the late Autumn months.

Aroma is sweet malts. Taste is malty with a small hit of bitter hops. Overall a not bad, but underwhelming fall beer.

Aurelius (4371) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Good label on an embossed 12 oz longneck. Surprisingly dark brew. Rich malty aroma with some licorice and pepperoni. Tastes like a mild. Faintly roasted, a little sweet, very light creosote. Very drinkable. Lightish body. ABC Liquors, Betton.

shigadeyo (3075) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2014
11/01/2014: Breckenridge Autumn Ale pours an elegant deep brown color with a nice beige head of foam. The aroma is toasted German malt and bread crust. The flavor is rich and roasty with a lot of chocolate malt followed by caramelized sugar, a dap of molasses, and a good amount of nuttiness. Medium body; average mouthfeel. Overall this is a fantastic beer that really delivers on the label description of being a combination between "the malty goodness of a German lager with the clean crispness of an American ale." 12 fl. oz. bottle from Rich.

gripweed57 (768) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Mahogany brown color with red highlights. Medium-sized creamy beige head. Faint toasted malt nose. Sweet toasted malt flavor is smooth and silky with dark caramel and nutty notes. Slightly resiny hops in finish, though understated. Overall, very drinkable, but unremarkable.

good flavor, easy drinking and nice finish. Just like the bottle says ’after raking’. Nice fall selection. Thumbs up

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Really, really disappointed with this one from Breckenridge Brewery. Aromas are very sweet with hints of caramel and roasted malts. Tastes very watered down.

bkurtz (866) - PERU - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle-Pours a deep mahogany with red highlights. About 2 fingers of head that quickly dissipated. Aromas of dried fruit and caramel. Sweet caramel and fruit taste and a good mouth feel. Solid beer, but not my favorite style.

UrbanCaveman (74) - Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2014
12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass at approximately 40 degrees F. A: Pours a dark brown, almost exactly the color of Dr. Pepper, and forms a thin pale head which dissipates quickly. Holding the glass up to sunlight reveals a reddish hue, and one can see the shadows of their fingers on the opposite side of the glass. There is no lacing to speak of, as it falls quickly down the sides of the glass. S: A rich, toasted malt, of the caramel and nutty variety. T: Malt bitter strikes right up front, before rounding out into toasted chestnut with toffee hints in the background. Bready malt lingers after the finish. F: Medium-bodied with a watery finish, and very little carbonation. O: An enjoyable tour de malt, with the nutty and toffee flavors blending well.

downender (6523) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Chestnut in colour, with next to no head and slight carbonation. Dar fruit and brown sugar aroma. Flavour was much the same, with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Ok.
