12oz bottle poured into GL Christmas ale snifter. I've had this glass for 7 yrs, this is the first time it's had GLCA in it.
Pours dark ruby amber, with a two finger khaki head. Classic Great Lakes looks, always have great looking beers. The aroma is filled with cinnamon, nutmeg, and a good dose of vanillia. The taste has less sweetness up front, instead there's a nice bitterness in its stead. Mid palate the sweetness kicks is with vanilla. The cinnamon and nutmeg last for quite awhile in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is surpisingly light making it very easy to drink. ABV is a bit high and sneaks up on you. This is a holiday classic in ohio and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
