Stock Ale with a Vampire on the label, leave it to Great Lakes to always entertain me with their brews. This seasonal is very nice but not over the top. Good hearty aroma, wine-like sharpness with a generous helping of hops. Pour is a medium dark ruby red with some amber tones, minimal head and little lacing. Due to the higher abv I can't complain too much about how this looks. Mouthfeel is powerful and unbelievably clean it hits you then melts away. Hops-a-plenty round out the high maltiness creating a nice sipper of a brew. Bitter and citrusy at first you think this doesn't work but as you go forward it all melds too easily. I like this ale very much.
