Clear dark red! and foamy pink head with good retention. Biscuit, spice, and fruit? Spicy biscuit flavor with a hoppy bittering and moderate linger. Sharp biting dryness and moderate carbonation.

Interesting look but I really can't decide if it's enticing or just fun. Certainly a fantastic beer for Halloween (alcohol is 6.66% ha!). Nice aroma and good flavor but a chemical (dye?) aftertaste and linger. Gimmicky? Yes. Fun? Yes. Good? meh.

Not overly sweet or pumkiny (if that's even a word) and a hint of espresso flavor. A perfect Fall beer.
