3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a fine beer. It pours dark copper/red, the head is creamy and hangs on for a while. The aroma is rich, if slightly muted. A little oak, some brown sugar. The flavor is smooth up front, slightly sweet, and then finishes with a wash of hops, caramel, nuts and cereal malt. Nice.

I’ve been drinking this beer for years, and I love it! Dark and deep red with aromas of flora, fruity hops and flavors of malt with a floral finish. Nice balance, some bitterness and very hearty. A great beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
그레이트 레이크 브루잉 - 노스페라투 8% ABV 붉은 빛이 감도는 갈색의 스트롱에일. 벨지안 스타일은 아니고 평범하고 젠틀한 영국식 에일에 홉기운이 강하게 빠지며 고도수를 지향 한 듯 하다.
마시기 부담스럽지 않게 평범한 것이 노스페라투 이미지를 가져다 쓰기에 너무 무난한 것 아닌가, 싶지만 무성영화를 떠올리니 그렇게 나쁜 조합만은 아닌듯.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Piney hops, with a touch of some herby dank-ness; malt sweetness; toasted grains and dark bread crust.
A: Dark ruby red with an big, rocky off white head that slowly fades and leaves whispy lacing trails. Great lacing overall.
T: Caramel with lots of citrus and pine alongside spicy hop flavor.
P: Medium with a medium carbonation level.
O: Not my bag, waaaaay to bitter but has a certain strong ale flavor that appeals to my palate.

Pours clear chestnut with a thick and rather persistent frothy buff head. Aroma promises with malt, hops and yeast. Flavor is a little better, hoppy and woody with roast malt, caramel and fruity supporting notes. Mouthfeel has decent body and fizz. Sink your teeth into it any time of year.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a deep brownish amber color with thin tan head. Boozy aroma with hints of raisin, prune, citrus, yeast and malts all on the nose. Starts out slightly sweet on the palate then the hop bitterness takes over throughout the finish. Nice pepper taste present as well as some spice.
