4.11/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Served as a blood red (not a coincidence) ruby color with a good head that leaves very nice lacing.
Smell: Malt, caramel, pine from the hops, and not much alcohol in the nose despite the ABV. Smells sweet, but not too sweet.
Taste: Much like the smell, the focus is on the malt but the hops add some balance, and the caramel flavor doesn't get out of control. There's some citrus from the hops, and the alcohol is nicely masked.
Mouthfeel: Medium heavy body with good carbonation. Goes down nicely and is never sticky.
Overall: This is absolutely worth trying. It's not Great Lakes' best offering, but it tastes great and makes for a good sipper or dessert beer.
Serving type: on-tap

3.69/5 rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Bottled is aged -- best by 11/21/13, so this one probably is a year old!
Pours a deep, deep amber -- almost opaque even. Rich head of tan foam, and nice lattice lacing.
Nose is malty and grainy, with a little diacetyl, and certainly some caramel malts. Pretty typical of the style.
Flavor is rich and malty, with plenty of toasty grains and a heavy body that typifies such a heavy beer alcohol-wise. Tangy bitter touch at the finish. Overall, a surprisingly solid beer for it's age, and quite a big brew.
