BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Breckenridge Brewery
Colorado, United States
breckbrew.com

Style: Old Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our fall seasonal combines the malty goodness of a German lager with the clean crispness of an American ale. Brewed with Munich malts and a delicate blend of Bavarian hops, it's a full-bodied treat with a nutty-sweet middle, a warming alcohol level and notes of toasted grains. A pre-winter winner.

DATE TASTED: December 10, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky pint... OCCASION: a nightcap after celebrating the season with my LVR peers... APPEARANCE: bubbly, almost totally dark body that supports a finger's worth of brown head... the head is resilient and remains a strong ring around the glass...no lacing to speak of... AROMA: caramel, some chocolate and nut make for an autumnal bouquet; the malts are also earthy and doughy; the suggestion of fruits is faint, but appreciable... PALATE: flat, slightly carbonated at the start, with a medium body and a dry finish...drinkable, but slightly warming... TASTE: immediate experience is grape, plum and caramel, with the doughy aspects giving weight to the profile; evokes a Cabernet-like flavor, with added nuttiness, butterscotch, and toasted oats fulfilling the label's "after rakin'" promise... OVERALL: a lot to like in this one--the Fall definitely has flavors, and Breckenridge captured a few of them here; a great fit even for this balmy December night....

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance has a ruddy burnt orange color with a one to two finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Thin clingy lacing starts and eventually slides into the beer.
The smell started off with some chocolate, nuts, a bit of roast, a light amount of dark fruits and a little bit of caramel malts.
The taste copies the smell and rounds out sweetly and roasty. There's a light quick malty aftertaste running into the finish.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing the malts to come out in a slight sticky sort of way, but not overbearing.
Overall, its a decent old ale that I think I could do again.

Good bark beer, very much like a stout but very little head. End finish less smooth than some stouts, but very good overall. Light stout. Coffee and some chocolate.

Pots a dark Amber color. Has an aroma of roared malts and caramel. Flavor is a little sweet, a little boozy and you get the roasted malt backbone. Overall this is ok but I would hope for better out of a fall beer
