2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Poured a brown color with an off white head. This one, for me, was all about the spices. Caramel and some nuttiness in there too, but way too much spices for me.

Bottle. Nutty herbal pine and caramel malt aroma. Cloudy brown with small head. Sweet nutty caramel malt and lightly bitter pine flavor. Light body. Nice balance - not overly spiced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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...

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep amber color with a short lived beige head. Nose of some spice and an real artificial vanilla. This tastes of some cinnamon and spice but mostly I get a big wave of what I process as artificial vanilla flavoring. It is a bit off putting.
