Cybercat (3277) - Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2012
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
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.

Draft. Hidden valley. Medium head. Brown color. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnimon, more nutmeg, and nutroll. Medium light sweetness. Medium light body. Easy to drink. Nice mix of spice.

cheap (4015) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2012
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.

gripweed57 (642) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Dark reddish brown color. Small beige head disappears immediately. Faint roasted malt aroma hints at cinnamon and allspice. Roasted malt flavor with notes of currants and toasted nuts. Flavors develop as brew warms up. Some fruity citrus hops in finish. Definately improves at about 55 degrees.

cpost (3) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2012 does not count
On tap in December 2012; rich, caramel in color, nutmeg and nut present in aroma, almost no head and no lacing, lighter in body than anticipated, overall good but I wish it was a bit heartier

DrSilverworm (6306) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
On tap at Fries. Dark but clear brown color. Minimal off-white head, little loose lace. Nice, interesting flavorful aroma. Very spot-on nut roll, like a christmas cake. Really nice nutty, rich and spicy nose. Some cinnamon, nutmeg. It’s more rich than spicy, though, great balance. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Interesting, tasty brown ale. But the only thing is, a whole pint is a little intense. The sweetness doesn’t seem nearly as balanced through the second half...

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2012
From bottle. Light cooked vegetable aroma, mild spices. Nutty with some caramel sweetness, no obvious hop variety. Dark amber brown clear with thin off-white foamy lacing head. The nose evokes the smell of a nut roll, but the vegetal aroma is a bit off-putting. Medium watery body with heavy carbonation. Starts medium sweet with caramel and nuts, a bit of carbonic bite, and bitterness. Fairly thin flavor though pleasant enough. Dry nutty bitter finish with hint of vanilla and cinnamon sugar. Reminds me of a long ago Sam Adams LongShot beer with hazelnuts.

Nutty spicy aroma. Hazelnut and slight coffee flavor. Slightly watered down.
