Poured into a sam adams glass.
Pours a dark brown with a mahagony hue. Head is very small and dissipates quick. Wish it had more head.

Aroma is malty deliciousness. Toasty malts with obvious notes of molasses and a touch of raisin and smoked meat.

Flavor is pleasantly sweet up front with molasses but is short and dry on the finish, making it a bit quenching. Nice fall flavors including brown bread, touch of smoke and faint raisin again. Flavor is a bit thin on the finish, but it doesnt bother me.

Mouthfeel is full at first but feels thinneron the finish. Culd use more carbonation.

Overall i really like having this as opposed to other beers refered to as fall seasonals and "autumn ales". If i was to compare it to the better old ales it wouldnt score so high, but nothing about it is bad. Its just a very drinkable old ale....a bolder, satisfying "fall beer" if you will. I'll pick this up every year.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Nikki's Liquors in North Providence, Rhode Island.

A- Pours a mahogany body with amber highlights. Small white head that reduces to a white ring with no lacing.

S- Heavy malt, caramel, maybe some corn. Not the best aroma.

T- Toffee and caramel sitting on a big malt backbone. Finishes smooth and sweet.

M- Low carbonation, medium body.

Overall a full bodied, well balanced autumn brew that in my opinion hit all the high points of this style. Not the most complex brew, but nonetheless enjoyable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- Looks like a brown ale with red huge all around the glass. Virtually no head whatsoever. Beige bubbles rim the top of the glass.

S- Roasted malts and brown sugar/molasses. Faint coffee notes. It's nice for something like a brown ale.

T- Molasses and malt. Only a slight spice. To my tastebbuds the beer finishes slightly sour. It is a light beer in terms of it's overall flavor profile.

M- Very easy to drink, although it is a bit too carbonated for my liking.

Overall the beer is good, but nothing that made me jump up and down with joy. It's the perfect kind of fall beer because it's not too spicy or malty. Any average beer drinker would find this somewhat enjoyable.

A: Pours a nice dark brown with under a fingers worth of an off-white head has a decent lacing.

M: A medium body with a light amount of carbonation.

O: A solid fall seasonal from Breckenridge very drinkable even at 6.7% .
