Medium aroma with molasas, coffee bean, vanilla, and caramel. Dark brown, almost black, in color with excellent lacing. Medium sweet, with light bitter and sour notes. Nicely balanced beer with a good mouthfeel. Seems sweeter from bottle than from an open glass. Prefer this beer directly from the bottle.

Pretty good autumn brew here. I particularly enjoy the malt character of this one. It’s got some very complex notes, lots of bread, caramel notes in there. I really enjoyed this one. Pours a deep amber/copper with a generous head to it. Finishes very crisp and refreshing. The autumn season always brings some of my favorites beers. Great seasonal!

Pours out a clear, but very dark brown color with a small/medium tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee and vanilla. Tastes just like it smells. This is a very nice blend of the flavors mentioned that is sweet to the slightly bitter end. A nice mouth feel for this medium bodied brew, as it is not watery and leaves a warming path to your stomach. A very nice suprise as I was not expecting much. I bought one bottle on a whim and I will now go look for a six packer!

12 oz. bottle, $1.50 loose at HyVee. Dark brown pour, a layer of foam that’s gone quickly. Dark roast malt smell with a bit of chocolate and licorice. This is no "substitute" for Oktoberfest, this is a big dark ale, not for slamming in the biergarten. Some impy stout impressions, licorice again, toffee and coffee roast with a carefully match hop backup. Has some alcohol taste to it, more that its abv would suggest. A bit of Scotch peat, but mostly a big malty, earthy ale.

Breckenridge Autumn Ale is a dim brown ale with a light khaki head that fades to a film. It has a resiny aroma with a slight note of molasses. It’s very wooden and a little roasty. It’s pretty light bodied; kind of watery but the finish is kind of creamy. There is a lot of resiny malt in the taste, but it never gets sweet. Dark bread crust, medicine and maybe even licorice are in there. The aftertaste is pretty long and pretty bitter. Wow, this is like a light version of an imperial stout. What is this, a brown ale? Whatever it is, I like it.

You can really smell the munich malts in the aroma. Almost smells like thanksgiving stuffing. Poured a very dark amber with almost no head, even with an aggressive pour. Malty palate with some very subdued hop bitterness. At 6.7% alcohol and german malts and hops, it reminds me of a starkbier. I like this one.

Had this beer on 12/06/2004. Aroma is a nice roasted malt scent. Color is a deep brown amber with good carbonation and thin head. Taste is mild and roasted. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish then comes on with a mellow roasted malt flavor that is backed by a mild bitterness. It fits the fall season well.
