2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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

Lightly sweet aroma with a bold dark color and a nice, tan, foamy head. It had a nice lightly sweet flavor with a smooth finish mixing chocolate and coffee.

Good beer. Nice sweet taste. A little bit of an after taste that is not too hoppy. Good beer!

Delicious! It really does taste like a nut roll - very sweet and spicy. I detected some cinnamon and bread notes.

Comes out of the tap a deep sable just a whisker above coal black with a decent pale tan head. Strong, malty aroma has a firm overtone of horehound and notes of clove and cinnamon. Flavor has malty, nutty, caramel and horehound notes with a subtle undertone like chocolate milk. Sweetness is not too strong, though. Texture is about average, typical body but good fizz. Roll up to this one.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with virtually no head. Aroma almost of cola. Interesting. Taste is cola sweet with a slow building bitterness that doesn't offset the sweet but exists with it. Not refined, a bit too sweet. No entirely unpleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy dark brown with clingy tan head. Nose is roasty malt, cinnamon. Tastes malty, with notes of nuts, cinnamon, and brown sugar. This one truly tastes like a nut brown ale with frosting, and that is awesome.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2012 On tap at the house of 1000. Not up too snuff with the rest of the penn beers. Yes, quite unique I guess for penn’s first spicey herb veggie style BS. Somewhat spicey aroma from the start. I’d like to see a brewery discription of this stuff. Dirt for a backbone. Well behaved but so strange. Makes me think of well water I drank in the country park as a kid. Slaggy. A little dull n the finish. Thought it would be sweeter considering the name. Perhaps a little dissapointing.
