Notes/Commercial Description:
Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer's caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

This beer pairs excellently with toffee, caramel apples, or your favorite horror flick.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

bottle date 9/10/2013, poured into standard pint glass. Pours a deep murky auburn, almost brown, with a tawny light brown head--definitely looks like a beer for a night of mischief and trickery.

aroma- fragrant fresh pine and sweet citrus atop of sweet caramel; chocolate and rich toasted notes

taste- hop presence with pine resin and floral notes and subtle dank citrus. Lush, sweet caramel malt-delicious- with caramel and toffee, sticky, raisins and dark fruits as it warms. Finishes nice and dry and toasty with orangey hop zest and and tinge of lemon on the sides of the tongue

feel-fairly medium-full bodied, booze detectable, sticky, resinous. really nice

What a great beer! Fragrant zesty hops and complex, big malt sweetness. As far as ambers go, this has far more personality and... balls than most. Hops and malt both jump out onto the palate. I might take this over Nugget Nectar, as it offer a bit more malt profile (like an amber should?). cheers, ghouls and misfits!
