3.6/5 rDev +12.9%
I had this at Anthony's served chilled in a nonic.
The color is deep bronze/garnet with a translucent clarity and thin white cap.
The smell is very fruity with a plum aroma and currant vinous odor with slight spice and gentle dark grape acidity apparent in the nose
The feel is good w/ toasty texture and moderately carbonated with slight tinge of spice with mild earthy dry and moderate bitter finish. The taste is good with some roasted coffee nuttiness and light spice tinges with mild earthy notes and light woody aspect with yeasty flavor and mild tinge of pepper. The overall impression was a nice mix of flavors, but basic red ale with drinkable overall quality

Ah, Fall. Time for Halloween-themed seasonal beers. I had not seen this one before and decided to try it out, as I am a fan of the Lupine horror films. Well, that and it was on sale.
Served in a chilled tulip glass.
-Appearance 4.0: Poured out an amber color, not "Blood Red" as advertised. Very nice 1/2 inch head that stuck around as creamy swirls on top and the sides.
-Smell 4.0: Interesting bouquet: I smell slight cinnamon hints with a big barley punch and then some hoppiness. Appetizing.
-Taste 4.0: Front is slightly sour, but has some nice barley hints. Middle is slightly spicy (must be the Rye) and has more slight sourness. Finish is short and dry and features some subdued but strangely assertive hops and more rye spiciness. Aftertaste is also short and dry and hits you with more of the barley/rye. Unusual and enjoyable.
-Mouthfeel 3.5: The level of carbonation in this brew really adds to the enjoyment of the beer.
-Overall 4.0: Very good beer that is worth a try. Would be a fantastic session beer as the under 5% ABV would allow you to enjoy several without changing into a creature of the night. I think ol' Larry Talbot himself would be proud. Now go howl at the moon... .

ST: 12oz poured into a pint glass.
A: Clear, reddish-brown with a half-a-fingernail white, fluffy head.
S: Toasty malt and very nutty.
T: Nutty, malty, a touch of blackberry with a hint of bitterness and alcohol. It leaves a mellow nutty flavor in the average finish.
O: A fair ale. It is mellow and pleasant; it would be easy to drink a six pack. It is a solid beer, but it isn't much more than that.
