A pre-winter winner.

12oz bottle. Probably near one year old. Pours brown with a reddish tint. Mine got a very small head in my NB snifter. Aroma is malt, caramel, mild roast, and earthy. Flavor is malty, nutty, roasty, and cream-like, with some earthy and apicy hop flavor. The beer is mildly bitter at the end, just enough to keep if from being cloying. Big bodied. Didn’t realise this was 6.7%, but it does have a big body and a nice flavor. Enjoyable.

Autumnal Brown/Oranged Coloring with White Head. Sweet Tart Caramel Malt Aroma. Caramel Malts with a Light Toasted Expression. Medium Mouthfeel. Arguably One of the Better Brews I’ve Tried From This Brewery. Pretty Light For an Alt. I Would Have Bought Amber Styel Better

This tastes more like a brown ale than any alt I’ve had. Unfortunately I hate brown ale. This is particularly bad for a brown ale, an horrible for an alt. It’s exceedingly tart, and lacking in malt and hops. Either would make quite an improvement. This stuff is so tart it smells like vinegar. I mean it really does.

Butterscotch figures prominently in the mildly nutty malt forward aroma. Clear, dark brown body with low tan head that recedes to ring. Liquorice, roasted, dark malts are strong in the sweet, lightly fruity flavour with herbal hop character and moderate bitterness. Medium body with fairly lively carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

On tap @ breckinridge 471 Kalamath poured a clear dark brown with red highlights and a small amber head. Aromas of toffee,plum and a touch of citrus. Palate was crisp and clean. Flavor was malty, with a bit of dark fruit, and toffee with a lightly sweet dry finish.

BeerandBlues2 (13695) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Draught at Breckenridge at the Ballpark. Pours dark brown with spotty off-white head. Malty sour yeast (sweat) aroma with light hop notes. Sour malt flavor with a hoppy body and yeast notes. Medium bodied and thin, crisp palate.

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2005
A surprisingly good offering from Breckenridge, bucking the Oktoberfest trend. Deep reddish-brown body, thin off-white/cream head. Toasty malt aroma with a touch of raisin, earthy and biscuity notes, and nice European hops. Heavier and toastier than most fall seasonals, with an emphasis on toasty malts, burnt caramel, earthy hops, and a touch of licorice. Light alcohol presence. Tasty.

09.30.05 Tap at brewpub. Very dark ruby/mahogany brown. Persistent brown head. Boozy, rich, and mineral. Dry and mite salty to finish. Lots of sourish-doughy pretzel. Real nice offering.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Poured mahoghany, thin tan head. Aroma was faint and like vegetables, I can’t pinpoint which one. Taste was caramel, toffee, raisins, some nuttiness& some spice. Finsihes slightly sour. I found it to be slightly watery.
