look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Bottle 12/12, drinking about 6 weeks fresh. Poured into a Spiegelau glass. $13/6pack
Appearance: Clear golden orange color, 1-2 fingers of off-white head. Mild lacing, decent retention.
Smell: How a Christmas ale should smell. Spicy, cinnamon, roasty malts, nutty. Very nice.
Taste: Follows along with the smell profile. Really nice spice profile carrying through onto the taste. Really liking this. Not too hoppy or bitter. No heat or alcohol present.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, moderate carbonation, average finish.
Overall: Really enjoyed this. One of the best Christmas Ales I've had. Better than Goose Island's Christmas ale, in my opinion, and less expensive. Next to blackout stout, probably my favorite offering from Great Lakes.
Serving type: bottle
