12oz bottle purchased from Wolverine Market in Port Huron, Michigan. Pours a deep ruby red with a thick cream white cap and globs of lace on the tulip. Smell is cherry cookie, molasses, strawberry cake, sugary malts, cocoa powder, candy apple, and resiny hops. Flavour is toffee, caramel, dried fruit sweetness, toasty biscuit, dark grapes, burnt sugar, dates, piny and citric bitterness, warming booze in the throat. Mouthfeel is rich, creamy-smooth, fuller than medium, lasting bitter astringency, wet and biting finish. A stand-up American Strong Ale that seems better suited as a winter release rather than a fall seasonal. The taste is equal parts barley wine, imperial amber, and winter warmer, which makes this one hell of a unique brew. An excellent offering from Great Lakes Ohio.
