Nice darker hop beer. Perfect for the fall season given the deep amber color

12 oz Bottle -- Pours rich cherry-copper with a small off-white head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, butter, cherry, current, and hops. On the drier side with a pronounced bitter finish. Surprisingly drinkable for an 8% strong ale.

I have been dying to try this one. I am a huge horror flick fan so Nosferatu is an icon in my world.
Pours dark, dark amber, almost red with a nice fluffy head and incredible lacing.
Smells very dark and fruity, almost like the Old Jubilation I had earlier.
Very fruity aroma with raisins, figs, and maybe grapes.
Tastes pretty much like I thought it would. Very sweet taste with an underlying maltiness and hoppiness to it. Very pleasant tasting beer.
I actually tried this right off the shelf so it wasnít the least but chilled.
And I still loved it. Canít wait to try it chilled. Was going to use this as trade fodder but Iím not sure I can get rid of it.
Excellent beer here.

This beer is hard to pin down -- I think its father was a Belgian Strong Ale and its mother was an IPA. It might have some Marzen ancestry as well. Wonderful stuff. Lovely mahogany color, very bold hoppy taste with some strong malt too.

Pours a handsome reddish brown body with thin tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, spice, and yeast. Tangy fruity flavor, toasty malts, and traces of pineapple. Hoppy bitters with slightly sticky sweet finish.

On tap at Map Room, Chicago. Was expecting to be blown away, but a little disappointed. Decent hop profile, but a little too bitter for my tastes. The bitters might help it stand out after a night of drinking- next time Iíll save it for the end.
