Bought a single bottle from Beers of the World on 11/22/13. Sell by date is 01/31/14.
Poured from bottle into a pint glass, served at cellar temp.
appearance: medium-dark amber with a rocky shortbread head of sticky foam.Nice lacing.
aroma: Caramel malt, ginger, maybe some honey. Nice.
mouthfeel: just ok.
taste: Brown sugar sweetness, spices like ginger, cloves and coriander and a slight chocolatey finish. Honey makes an appearance at end also.
notes: Like every beer drink from Great Lakes, I detect cocoa at the end. The difference is, it works for this beer just like it works for Eddy Fitz. This beer is better than Sam Adams Winter Lager, however I don't like it well enough to buy again. Still I wouldn't turn it down if it were offered.
Serving type: bottle
