Great Lakes Nosferatu (4/10)

Great Lakes Brewing Company's Nosferatu is an American Strong Ale. It pours a reddish brown with thin white head and lots of lacing. The aroma is undeniably hoppy.

The flavor lives up to the nose. It hits you with hops bitterness, followed by a maltiness and a hint of sourness. Bottom line... Hoppier than I care for. Not undrinkably hoppy, but well past my comfort level.

Not too surprisingly, the hop heads at Beer advocate love it. They rate it a 90, or "exceptional". For me, this one is a 2/5... Drinkable but not one I will likely order again.

I tried this at The Winking Lizard Tavern.  I've not seen it elsewhere but I am sure someone carries it.

ABV: 8%
IBU: 75
My rating: 4/10
