4.25/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served in a pint glass at the Great Lakes taproom. The color was a dark amber with a nice beige head with good retention. The smell was a sweet dark malt. The taste was a heavy sweet caramel malt, and finished with the hop bitterness in the mouth. Mouthfeel was average. As for drinkability, could have a few.

This reminded me of the St. Nikolaus Bock, except with a bit more hopping. Not a bad beer at all, and certainly enjoyed the chance to drink it at one of the Meccas of beer, Great Lakes Brewery. Quite good, and hopefully I'll be in Cleveland again to drink this in the future!

4.4/5  rDev +7.6%

Poured a deep mahogany, hints of garnet, with a nice fluffy 2 finger head that stuck around for the remainder of the pint. The smell was caramel and faint hints of spice. The flavor was very complex in its maltiness: caramel, honey, plum & other fruitiness, and roasted malt flavors came through. Low hop presence that probably just aided in a clean finish. Mouthfeel was a little oily, which only helped it slide down the throat. This is aged for eight weeks and as a result it is very smooth. There was a slight alcohol presence that brought down the drinkability.
Originally sampled in the spring and liked it well enough to bring home two growlers.
