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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Hidden valley. Medium head. Brown color. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnimon, more nutmeg, and nutroll. Medium light sweetness. Medium light body. Easy to drink. Nice mix of spice.

Had this as part of a variety pack, really enjoyed the spice bill on this with a great smooth and sweet finish, will try again

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.

Dark brown pour, some suds. Spice, tree, caramel, molasses, burnt malt. Flavor is the same. A good Christmas blend without being too in your face malty like so many are. A bit minty/herbal in the finish. Nutty too.

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.

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.

Aroma is small brown head with dark brown color. Aroma is sweet malts. Taste is a little nutty, but not strong. Overall not the greatest.
