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 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.

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...

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

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.

Nate (3778) - 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.

Cybercat (3500) - 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.

A delicious Christmas beer! I usually don’t care for these spiced holiday beers so I wasn’t 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. That’s a plus. Roasted malt and caramel come out as it warms. Nice carbonation round the beer out. Very nice!

I’m 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.

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.
