I was just complaining in a recent thread that I could'nt find any Pennichuck here in Keene. Milford is not that far but it's nice to see it here where I live! I found this bottle at Blueberry Fields in Keene. ($5.49 per bomber)

22 oz. bottle > SA 16 oz. glass (2)

This is a deep, nearly opaque dark brown color from some light around the edges. The carbonation is nice with a 2", tight, tan, sea-foam looking crown. slow retention and plenty of sticky lacing. a good 1/4" of cover remains through the duration.

The aroma is a dark chocolate and roasty malt with vanilla, oats and mild herbal hops. fresh wheat, maple candy and tangy molasses.

The flavor is much more roastie and coffee flavored than the aroma will lead you to believe. The roastie flavor hits first with burnt wheat and then a sweet currnet of malt chocolate and vanilla. A delightful, earthy and herbal hop flavor rides in easy and subtle right at the end.

Light ot medium feel, a thin but clean feeling body that has a smooth edge and crisp finish.

I had no problem with two of these.
