Bottle from trade, and my first from Penn. pours dark brownish red, somewhat opaque, with some red shin fun through and an off white to khaki and creamy head. Aroma screams lager with sweet brown sugar, lager yeast, a little dirty, some dark fruit. Flavor is chocolate covered prunes with some brown sugar sweetness. A bit on the watery side in flavor but easy drinking with light plus mouthfeel and medium low carbonation. Acceptable brew and worth trying.

A: This beer was cloudy dark amber in appearance.

S: A very spicy and slightly malty smell.

T: The taste was slightly bitter with lots of spice and a nice roasted barley taste. I could taste slight nutmeg and cinnamon malts.

M: The initial mouthfeel was bitter but smooth.
