This odd ball caught my eye when I was at the brewery this week getting Oktoberfest beer..came in a brown KLB bottle with generic Amsterdam label in a brown cardboard six pack with the words "Autumn Ale" written in magic marker.

The pour was a surprise as I see a dark brown ale with a puffy 2 finger mocha cap in my glass.

Muted aroma: roast husks, burnt treacle, light grassyness, some dried fruits and some tones like sweet pipe tobacco.

Slightly sweet and spicy up front like cinnamon buns but then some hop balance shows and light vinous fruit is detected... the finish is sharp, clean roasty with a light char and spicy.

Decent ale...drinkable...dunno what it is though maybe a spiced brown or Amber or a sweet spiced porter..I'll buy some more if I see it next time I'm in..worth a try and a retry

Picked up from the brewery. Similar to a British Winter Warmer.

A: Deep ruby-brown with a light tan head, very little retention but leaves a little leg.

S: A fairly big nose, bready, caramel, nut, dark fruit, woody spice,

T: Chocolate, dark fruit, dark bread, nut, dark caramel, fruity ale esters, pleasant spicing (with some nice depth), slight earthy mineral flavour. Balanced bitterness with a slight alcohol warmth.

M; Moderate to full body is malty and well-attenuated with a dry finish.

D: Not sessionable, but a pleasant sipper for a cold autumn day (would be a great winter ale too!).
