Had at the source, received in a pint glass. 3.5 A: Its dark in here, but I think its 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: Im a sucker for brown ales and the maple syrup thing does a good job drawing me in. ★ 616 characters DavoleBomb, Dec 21, 2015

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.

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 didnt 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.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Deep reddish brown with a nice hoppy/spiced aroma. A very enjoyable winter seasonal ale.

bottle and very unusual. Cant get the memory of my uncle and his pipe out of my head, pungent seet odor and bitter tatste, but I cant say drinking the pipe was the same.

Dark brown pour, some suds. Spice, tree, caramel, molasses, burnt malt. Flavor is the same. A good Christmas blend without being too in your face malty like so many are. A bit minty/herbal in the finish. Nutty too.

jsmerig (1563) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Woah, I cant say Ive ever had anything quite like this. Raisin, malt, Christmas spices. The taster is served with cinnamon sugar on the rim which really accents the whole deal. A stretch to call this setup beer - more like a cinnamon roll cocktail.
