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.

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.
