Availability: Fall

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.

3.7/5  rDev -9.5%

22oz bottle poured into an imperial pint.

Appearance
Deep red with 2 fingers of light tan head. Good retention and clarity. Light-moderate carbonation.

Nose
Toffee, caramel. grapefruit and pine.

Taste
Toffee and caramel maltiness with hints of toast and a subtle earthiness. Notes of grapefruit and pine. Perhaps some touches of orange citrus.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, clean and smooth.

Overall
A decent Red Ale. I think I prefer My Bloody Valentine to this one.

Stopped by the brewery, which can be rather difficult because of tasting/growler filling hours and San D traffic. Barely made it before closing.

Anyways picked a growler of the Evil Dead Red.
Poured an almost opaque, dark, blood-red color.
Thick, foamy, tan head, nice lacing on my tulip glass.
Moderate carbonation.

It has a sweet malt smell to it, a little fruity. Nice light hop aroma.
A little sweet.
Rich malt taste, mild on the palate.
A mildly bitter hop finish with a little nutty flavor in there.

Rather smooth beer, very drinkable. Check out Alesmith!

Cheers!
