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

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.

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.

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

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.
