12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. Classified here as an Old Ale. Not really sure what to expect.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours an extremely dark, flat mahogany color; appears a dark semi-clear ruby in the glass, with barely a finger's worth of khaki head. Some scattered lacing slowly stains the glass. Looks pretty nice, I'd suppose. 4

S - The aroma isn't too pronounced - some cream, roasted / toasted malts, perhaps some faint raisin / dark fruit presence. Could be better. 3

T - The taste is a notch up from the aroma - smooth, creamy / buttery, roasty, lightly nutty / chocolatey / earthy. Some faint indistinct dark fruitiness in there again. Pleasant enough for what it is. 3.5

M - The mouthfeel is extremely smooth and creamy. Medium bodied with perfect carbonation. Very easy drinking. 4

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. A fine fall seasonal from Breckenridge. I would have it again.

Not your average seasonal. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and coffee, almost stout like. The taste was very rich with hints of coffee and dark chocolate but also a toasted nuttiness to it. Very enjoyable. A little thick to the point where you might only be good with two per sitting but still a very delicious beer.

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

Appearance: Pours out cola brown with a very modest cap that fritters away leaving a speckled pattern of lace

Smell: Treacle and Cadbury's Fruit and Nut bar; perhaps a hint of toasted grain

Taste: Sugary-sweet, with the candied tones from the aroma combining to produce a taste rather akin to Dr. Pepper; a bit grainy in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; a bit cloying
'
Overall: Well, certainly unusual, but when I want a Dr. Pepper I will buy when and when I want a beer I want a beer
