Nosferatu is a full-bodied, English style Strong Ale with a deep red-amber color. This is a very complex ale, with a rich malty flavor and assertive hop character. The particular blend of specialty malts leads to a toasted “biscuit” flavor with a gentle malt sweetness. On top of this firm malt foundation, several large additions of British style hops are then added throughout the boil. The result is a truly unique beer, with a distinct hop profile, from the crisp bitterness of the first taste, through the fresh hop flavor and aroma of the beer’s finish.

Draught. Deep amber red colour, almost like bloody mud, with a thick white head. Much lacing. Aroma of malt, biscuit and woodland. Full malty flavour, with a touch of pine, a touch of toast and a touch of rusk. Medium hop finish. Lekker!

Another great red ale. Here an initial hoppiness gives way to a sweet malt body. While there is a hint of toasted barley, could be better.

Draft at Bailey’s Taproom. This is a really well-made, flavorful little beer. Pours deep grainy ruddied medium amber with a dense but too-brief tan head. Nice brown bread, biscuit, and light caramel nose. Creamy, slightly grainy medium body. No flaws on the mid-palate. Not the single most amazing mid-palate for flavors, but boasts some brown bread, caramel, wet leaves, and a bit of toast. Nice stuff. Clean finish.

on tap at mickey finns. aromas of wheat toast, dark caramel, walnuts. crisp copper red color with an off-white head.has appropriate carbonation and a little weight in the mouth. flavors of dark caramel, whole wheat bread, plum. the crispness fo the falvors here makes this a superior amber/red to me, since others fo this type have an odd flavor patch that i cant describe but dont like.

On cask at Bailey’s taproom. Pours red/copper with a bubbley off-white head. Nutty malts up front, fruity with a soft toasty caramel character. I really enjoyed the balance this beer had, the pairing of the toasty malts and the citrus hops was well done, the cask thinned it all out and subdued the hops a bit, but it still was delicious.

Tap at Rose and Raindrop. Reddish-amber coloured beer. Thin white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy. Pale candyish biscuity malt. Fruity, caramel malt, some yeastiness and a bit of resiny and citrusy hop flavour. Yeast throws loads of raspberry/cherry esters with with some sweet C-hops.

Cask- Pours cloudy orange with a creamy offish white head. Smells really cleanly brewed with a bit of sweetness citrus. Oranges and sweetness right up front and then fading to a very smooth end. Very little bitterness on the finish. The flavor is incrediblly orange. I love this beer. I drove an hour to have another pint (or two) It reminds me of humbolt red nectar.

Other than the color, this just about enters IPA teritory with hops everywhere and as such I find it most enjoyable. I will drink this anytime I can find it. Nice color!

Named for Vlad the Impaler...interesting, I knew the guy had a taste for blood but he must have been a hop fan as well. Other than the red color, this is almost straight-up an IPA. Very hoppy, rather tasty but not as much malt here as I would have hoped.
