ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2013
Rated 3/31/13. 22 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a dark reddish-brown color. The head is a two finger heavy cream shade. Retention starts off quickly, then seems to slow down as the bubbles in the head get smaller. Attractive lacing, too. S: This has a LOT of caramel malt in it, with a slight candied tone thrown in there as well. But the more I whiff it, the more a grassy, lemony hop character comes through. Not bad. T: Initially, this opens up very caramel-forward. Underlying all the caramel are hints of chocolate, and it finishes with some light Centennial hopping. The flavors here balance out too well - they seem to cancel out the interesting qualities they could have otherwise brought to the table. In other words, a typical amber ale. M: Theres too much sweetness on the palate, and its too thickly textured. The lack of flavor and unctuous palate feel - combined with the slightly-too-strong carbonation - makes this one really difficult to drink. O: This is the first offering from Speakeasy Ive had, and Im not impressed. Its the poor drinkability combined with the dreadfully boring nature that kills it for me. Others will like this, I dont - like I said before, a typical amber ale. It does improve once it warms up, at least.

Tap at Zly casy. Buttery and slightly roasty. Not bad, but lacking in hoppiness in all respects and also struck by diacetyl.

MelvinKalksma (1360) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, bread and hops.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque dark orange/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends sightly bitter and dry with bread and hops.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is way more outspoken than the taste, such a shame. Great appearance however and a good beer overall.

Faathoven (99) - Barcellona P.G., ITALY - NOV 28, 2016
It pours a lovely ruby color with a medium tan frothy head of nice persistence. The aroma is caramel, light toffee, nice hoppiness (grapefruit, tangerine, red orange), some fruitness as well. The flavour follows the nose, up front a really nice caramel and maltiness, almost fruity, then a citrus hop character that lingers for a while, a subtle toasty note in the end which is just perfect. Extremely balanced! A very very dangerous beer, the alcohol content is wisely hidden and it goes down so easily. Soft carbonation, medium body with almost creamy mouthfeel. Just love it!
