4.3/5 rDev +11.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
poured from a 12oz into my arrogant bastard pint glass, a thick hazy dark amber color, reminds me of the color of rosewood. Dense sandy off white yellow head dissipates evenly as the carbonation which is initially present slows to a trickle. Unfiltered, appearance is dense and malty I am looking forward to the flavor.
The smell is spicy and woody, coriander, nutmeg, some sweeter cinnamon and sugar, definitely some solid assortment of hops in here to balance with whatever awesome amount of malt is poured in there to make it such a frothy thick head and dense body.
The taste has it all, holiday spices; coriander, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, mace. Some vanilla too like it was thrown in oak barrels for a while. A tad of pine, some orange type citrus flavors. Malt sweetness balances this well, body is well defined, caramel and brown sugar, maple syrup. It's got a lot and they're all well defined in their own right as well, makes for a great experience.
Mouthfeel and drinkability, both follow from everything else about this brew, they're quite good. Very balanced feel, the malt provides a full body that is not at all lacking in quality or thickness. This is a great amber ale, seriously if you haven't had it you will not be dissapointed, it's got great flavors, a look and body as full as a barleywine, and half the alcohol so you can drink 2x as many! so far this is my favorite from speak easy.
