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. 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.

This is, hands down, my favorite beer of all time. I encountered it a few years ago back home in Atlanta at a place called The Porter. It has a lovely blood red color and a pinkish foam that I've never seen in any other beer I've ever had. It has hints of apple, orange, and a floral print somewhere from what I tasted. At 6.66% ABV, it's a devilishly delightful drink. It's a little thin in your mouth, which doesn't really make a lot of sense considering the flavor you get. Also, the smell, doesn't really hit you as hard as I think it should, but those two things are minor compared to the beautiful flavor.
