This beer is a sort of dark brown color with lots of red highlights, some brightness in the light though it's opaque. The head is a fluffy sort of almost medium brown. What's left behind is lots of legging and webbing spread out well.
This beer, in both aroma and flavor, has a certain sweetness that's balanced against a very light hops bitterness, which also balances against a strong malt foundation. The malts themselves offer some molasses on a toasty, bready base with some fruits. There's an additional bittersweetness and, flashing in and out, a kind of tartness here and there. The hops are just enough to add a bit of balance giving up raw but lighter elements of grass and herb or leaf.
The body is medium with a firm crispness that runs all the way through and a really steady smoothness playing off it it. It's pretty steadily semi-dry, more so in the finish.

This is a style I haven't sampled in quite a while.

Pours DEEP amber sporting a thin head that diminished to just a ring but left some receding lace.

The nose of this beer is something I just cant pinpoint but find appealing just the same..

Malty roasty flavor with a mild semi dry finish..lingering malts on the palate. 6.7% seems high given the complete lack of alcohol presence. Slight viscous mouthfeel with low carbonation.

Interesting style. Might go well with a dark wrap cigar.

Autumn Ale pours a dark brownish color with a small white lacing head. There is a rich malty and caramel aroma. The taste has a nice rich malty backbone, nice mellow caramel flavors, with some oakey flavors. Good full flavors, but very weak carbonation, and flat feeling. Overall its a good nicely flavored old ale.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours an incredibly dark brown, almost black color, more reminiscent of a porter, with an eighth of a finger of white head that very quickly dissolved away into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a thin wispy cloud that settled over the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very malty and roasty. Freshly toasted bread, roasted barley, slight hints of smoke (but not coming close to the aroma of a rauchbier), hints of chocolate, toffee and caramel.

Taste: Very roasted malt forward, with lots of pleasant smoke followed by malty goodness, caramel sweetness and finished by some nicely balanced hops bitterness. The taste is much more like a porter than a fall harvest-style beer. Delicious, but surprising.

Mouthfeel: Medium to slightly chewy. There is some pretty decent carbonation, and with an ABV of 6.7%, there is just the slightest touch of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: There is a very solid, very surprising beer. Like I stated above, it’s more like a winter porter than an autumn harvest/fest beer. Good flavors of roasted malt, smokiness and caramel sweetness. Solid beer.

Poured from a single bottle into a pint glass. 10/8

Pours very dark brown, bordering on black. No foam, none. Malty nose, with caramel. Sweet overwrapping taste, some pine. Low carebonation, almost syrup-like. Bready. Not sure what makes this for autumn, So-so,.

Absolutely loved this one. Very dark and crazy lacing!

A: 5. Seriously. Wonderfully dark, a small, very thick head with some of the craziest lacing I've seen in a while- stayed in the glass long after I was done drinking it.

S: Nothing particularly overwhelming. Caramel hints.

T: Sweet, close to a porter really. Hints of coffee, hops (but not as much as a normal porter), sweet, caramel, and toasted hints. Almost like a dessert beer.

M: Sweet. Moderately carbonated, ever so bitter with the slightest taste of a domestic. Sticks to my mustache.

O: Definitely will drink again.
