This beer has a dark opaque apppearance with a creamy beige head that leaves little lacing. The aromas are hard to discern, which I find a little frustrating in my winter warmers. I want these beers to be mysteries with clues left behind. The Breckenridge has spice and malt, but which ones I cannot tell.
The flavors are a little bit more forthcoming. The malts are forward and roasty and smokey. The smoke is welcoming to me because it rides the drink all the way to the long finish. Hops are present, but not the focus.
I really enjoyed the flavor and the finish of this beer. The heat does not show much at all,but leaves the winter warming effect.
Overall, I like. Yet, there are many many many other winter warmers that toast my buns better than this one.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Pours dark with one finger of light tan foam, not cloudy but not clear. A little carbonation.
Smell: Sweet, apple, floral, malt.
Taste: Light fruity taste with a little bit of malt in the background. Very little hop bitterness.
Mouth Feel: Smooth and medium bodied. Easy to drink.
Over All: An easy drinking beer but I was a bit disappointed as it was not what I expected for a winter warmer. The beer just did not give me a satisfying finish for the style. Not a bad beer but not what I expected.
