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.

12 oz. Bottle. A tasty treat, but definitely a dessert. Sweet cream scent with nutiness underneath. Small head over a dark brown pour. Medium bodied, silky feel with a slight fizz on the finish. Hazelnut fronted flavor to sweet cream, milk chocolate, and a bit of nutiness on the finish.

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.

Delicious! It really does taste like a nut roll - very sweet and spicy. I detected some cinnamon and bread notes.

Snifter Bottle with bmillsy. Cinnamon, red hots, malty, nutmeg aroma. Opaque mahogony color. Would go great with sugar on the rim.

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.

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap in December 2012; rich, caramel in color, nutmeg and nut present in aroma, almost no head and no lacing, lighter in body than anticipated, overall good but I wish it was a bit heartier
