This poured a brown color with a white head. Aroma of.nutmeg cinnamon and caramel. Flavor similar, some dark fruit but just too sweet for my liking

Transfer from BA review on 12-18-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep brown color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving only a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heavies of a big sweet vanilla and chocolate smell. Mixed with these are some roasted malt aromas with a good deal of nutty aromas mixed within. Overall it has a delicious sweet chocolate bar smell overall Taste – The taste begins with a moderately strong roasted malt flavor with a sweetness of caramel and a light vanilla mixed in. As the flavor advances, some chocolate begins coming to the tongue. It starts out of a sweeter milk chocolate flavor with it transitioning to a more semi-sweet flavor later on. A nutty flavor starts developing more in the middle of the taste, starting out of a lightly roasted almond flavor and becoming slightly more bitter and potent as the flavor moves to the end. With the advent of the chocolate and the nut that comes into the taste and takes it to its end, one is left with a still rather sweet, but nicely balanced chocolate and nutty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. A little thicker of a body and lower carbonation level may have suited the brew slightly better, but overall it was rather decent. Overall – A pretty easy drinking nut-brown ale with a good deal of a chocolate presence. Rather tasty overall.

Snifter Bottle with bmillsy. Cinnamon, red hots, malty, nutmeg aroma. Opaque mahogony color. Would go great with sugar on the rim.

Bottle from trade side by side with other Penn stuff. Pours a reddish amber color with a creamy white head. Sweet cinnamon candy aroma, a bit of toffee and caramel. Flavor is a bit of cinnamon on top of what seems to be that cream cheese icing flavor that I didn’t expect. A bit of nuttiness in there as well. Medium bodied with slightly prickly carbonation. This is a neat beer and seems like it would be good for the holiday times. Just like it is described.

Woah, I can’t say I’ve ever had anything quite like this. Raisin, malt, Christmas spices. The taster is served with cinnamon sugar on the rim which really accents the whole deal. A stretch to call this setup beer - more like a cinnamon roll cocktail.

Good dark brown beer. I thought it was going to be a much heavier in alcoholthen it was. Good beer, i’d call it a nut brown ale.

12 oz. bottle. It is nearly Memorial Day, and I am drinking this winter seasonal from a variety pack that I just picked up from a busy beer distributor this week? Go figure. I love the nose on this beer, what an an interesting mix of spices. But maybe it is old, and that is why it tastes a bit watery? i would like to try this on tap at the brewpub- in December and see how it performs then.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Amp 150. Reddish amber pour with a small head. Some mild cinnamon spice, sweet caramel. Palate is pretty thin and flat.
