3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 didnít 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.

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.

Woah, I canít say Iíve 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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
