I purchased this at brass rail, enjoyed the 12oz in a goblet chilled.

The color is dark brown with opaque clarity and thin quick dropping light head with fine bead. Lace and retention is decent. The smell is very light with malt and nutty roast odor with light coffee like smell. with a slight sweet malt presence. The feel has light body and semi-sweet texture with moderate carbonation and lightly chalky accent with semi-dry finish.

The taste has a gentle nuttiness with slight dried fruit and sweet caramel and moderately strong vanilla extract type flavor with slight chalky element and dry earthy finish with mild toasted grain and caramel in the finish. Overall I think this is a pretty decent yet a little smooth with out much nutty flavor compared to its inspiration with a basic vanilla nut brown effect which is good but could be better

Not a big fan off adding things to beer, but I take exception here. Dipped the rim of the glass in vanilla vodka and then dipped it in cinnamon sugar. A nice dessert beer especially with the ladies

Really nice brown ale here. Vanilla, cocoa, and toasted almond wrapped in a blanket sprinkled with brown sugar. Mouthfeel is substantial for a beer of this ABV. Will revisit...

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 didn’t 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.
