Sweet and spicy, with a nice copper color and a very smooth aftertaste. Very drinkable. Not my favorite beer of all time, but I definitely look forward to it every year. DYCSoccer17 (3697) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Pours a hazy copper/amber color with a 1.5 cm tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of faint maltiness. Start is roasty malty. Finish is smooth and relatively tasteless. Palate is good. Eh... aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
The dark copper beer pours with a thin, off-white head. It displays average retention, and fades to a thin layer of foam. The aroma is very strong on malt sweetness, with a hint of alcohol. The taste is almost all malt, with caramel, roasted malt, and just a hint of hop bitterness. The beautiful sweetness caresses the tongue, while the piney hops clean the palate. The mouthfeel is full and robust, almost feels like you could chew this beer. Just a hint of malt alcohol sweetness lingers on the finish. bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2003
THe first thing I noticed about this beer was how explosively it greeted me upon removal of the cap. A counterful of suds and glass of head later, I was actually able to enjoy this brew. blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2003
intresting beer, i don't like the entire concept of an october beer in march, but it's an average beer.

Thick and creamy, this was full of caramel toffee and paired with a prickly prickle of carbonation down the middle then ending short sweet and dry. Well done. beerluvindave (194) - Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Excellent flavor and color. Full body and complex presentation of malts. Very good overall - another Fat Head's beer on tap! dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2003
Pleasantly surprising. Nice copper color, sweet, roasted, clean flavor, quite refreshing with wings. Sturgess (173) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2002
A nice seasonal beer from Penn...it’s a bit on the lighter side and has a nice smooth aftertaste. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2003 Sweet, light malts. Small hit of hops, bit of caramel and molasses. Nice red/brown clear with no head. Light soft carb and medium watery body. Good sweetness, better than the Penn Dark. Not as dry and less hops. Nutty finish and sweet nutty after. Refreshing.
