look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is two fingers high, with a khaki shade. Retention isn't anything special, but the texture is nice enough. Webs of lacing are left behind on the glass. (3.5)

Smell: Very nutty, almost ridiculously nutty in fact. The aroma is distinctly German, but it's not really as altbier-esque as I initially anticipated. Letting it warm up will reveal some dark fruits, along with some graham cracker, gingerbread, and cumin. The faintest kiss of noble hops also appear. It's malty with a capital M, but give Breckenridge credit for showing the malts off well aromatically. (3.75)

Taste: Again, nuts are the primary flavor here. It develops notes of dark chocolate and spice near the middle and back end. Fruity tinges also appear. It doesn't wow the senses, but honestly? I like it. It fits the weather perfectly. It's far from a world beater, but it's quite decent. (3.25)

Mouthfeel: For a malty ale, it's somewhat dry. It's also reasonably light on the palate. Having said that, there is some residual sweetness left behind, so it's not a chugger. It tries to hit a balance between drinkability and richness...and honestly, it sort of succeeds. There isn't much carbonation, either. (3.5)

Overall: Breckenridge is usually meh in my book, but I'm honestly enjoying this. It's richer and slower drinking than the average oktoberfest, so keep that in mind. This wouldn't be my first choice, but I would buy it again. (3.5)

3.44/5: First Breckenridge beer I properly enjoyed
