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.

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

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

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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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.
