Had at the source, received in a pint glass. 3.5 A: Itís dark in here, but I think itís a clear light brown color. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Average retention and a few wisps of lacing are left. 4.0 S: An almost musty sweet nuttiness. Sweet brown sugar with plenty of toastiness and maple syrup. 3.75 T: All of the above flavors but in different proportions. Less sweet than the nose with reasonable complexity. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Bity carbonation with moderate creaminess. 3.75 D: Iím a sucker for brown ales and the maple syrup thing does a good job drawing me in. ★ 616 characters DavoleBomb, Dec 21, 2015

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.

Rotbart (155) - - FEB 15, 2013
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.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2014
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.

shrubber85 (10026) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle. Nutty herbal pine and caramel malt aroma. Cloudy brown with small head. Sweet nutty caramel malt and lightly bitter pine flavor. Light body. Nice balance - not overly spiced.

Lightrider (344) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Aroma is a thick malt. Taste is a crisp bitter malt. Finish is clean and warm and dry.

jsporrer (460) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a semi-clear mahogany with a thin tan ring. Sweet toffee and roasted malt aroma. Light carbonation. Tastes of caramel, toffee, and candy corn. Smooth, light, and refreshing. Flavors arenít very bold but not overly sweet either. Similar to a light Dunkel. Not great but not bad.

r464 (2250) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Aroma of dark fruit and malt. Spices, raisin, cherry, caramel. Not too strong, though. Overall not bad for a winter seasonal type of beer.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
On tap at Fries. Dark but clear brown color. Minimal off-white head, little loose lace. Nice, interesting flavorful aroma. Very spot-on nut roll, like a christmas cake. Really nice nutty, rich and spicy nose. Some cinnamon, nutmeg. Itís more rich than spicy, though, great balance. Sweet, but not cloyingly so. Medium body, smooth carbonation. Interesting, tasty brown ale. But the only thing is, a whole pint is a little intense. The sweetness doesnít seem nearly as balanced through the second half...

gripweed57 (1289) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2012
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.
