Iím not generally a big fan of Christmas spiced beers but this one is a different story. Dark brown with a ring of foamy head. Aroma is sweet, creamy, spiced, toasted malts, chocolate. Medium to full body. Flavor is sweet, toasted malts, cream, spices, nutty, milk chocolate. A real stunner. Delicious.

A delicious Christmas beer! I usually donít care for these spiced holiday beers so I wasnít expecting much. Aroma was nice and strong. Heavy spices and notes of caramel. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was delicious. Nutmeg and cinnamon were dominant and made the beer taste like a pumpkin beer. Thatís a plus. Roasted malt and caramel come out as it warms. Nice carbonation round the beer out. Very nice!

Deep reddish brown with a nice hoppy/spiced aroma. A very enjoyable winter seasonal ale.

12 oz. Bottle. A tasty treat, but definitely a dessert. Sweet cream scent with nutiness underneath. Small head over a dark brown pour. Medium bodied, silky feel with a slight fizz on the finish. Hazelnut fronted flavor to sweet cream, milk chocolate, and a bit of nutiness on the finish.

Hazy red Brown color with lots of sticky lacing. Served with a cinnamon sugar RIM which is pronounced on the aroma, not sure if beer is brewed with cinnamon. Nice malty palate with smooth nutty feeling.

bottle and very unusual. Canít get the memory of my uncle and his pipe out of my head, pungent seet odor and bitter tatste, but I canít say drinking the pipe was the same.

This is a bold step from a brewery who prides itself on maintaining the German purity laws and has been conservative with their offerings in the past. Many reservations before the first sample, but overall this was a pleasant surprise. In emulation of nut roll flavorings, Penn has come very close without leaving any hints of artificial taste or aftertaste. All the proper spices and sugars are there along with a rich brown color and a creamy head. "A" for effort to Penn Brewery.
