Great Lakes Nosferatu

Great Lakes NosferatuStraight from Deron’s Top 5 American Strong Ales list… actually, straight from Deron himself, came this bottle of Great Lakes Nosferatu. What a tasty treat. Thank you, Deron!

Nosferatu poured a deep, transparent burnt orange with a ½-inch of creamy, off-white head. The aroma was lightly floral from the hops, but dominated by a port-like scent.

Nosferatu’s heavy body offered a very pleasant mouthfeel. Not the type of brew I’d be drinking on a hot summer day, but one I could enjoy, pint after pint, during cooler weather… that is, if I don’t have anywhere to go or anything to do for the hours following consumption. 😉 Upon my first sip, I could taste the high 8.0% ABV, especially on the sides of my tongue.

Both intensely bitter and sweet, Nosferatu is a balanced ale with a lingering aftertaste, reminding me to take another sip after relishing in the previous. Very tasty American Strong Ale – one I’ll imbibe in again. Thanks for the recommendation, Deron!

Cheers!
