Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: OStrungT on 02-13-2006

Don’t spend this Single Awareness Day alone – grab a beer! This red-blooded cousin of Evil Dead Red Ale, our Halloween Brew, is a beautiful crimson color. Notes of caramel, toast, and bittersweet chocolate balance an intense bouquet of floral hop aromas that we know you’ll fall in love with. The finish leaves a pleasant, full-bodied sweetness on the palate that won’t spread angry rumors about you to all your friends like that one time when I was…ohh…uhh…Happy Valentine’s Day!

I love amber ales, and this is a nice toasted caramel hoppy ale. Some chocolate layers come in, but overall a nice malt sweetness. With a nice hop kick.

Looks great. Pours great. Tastes great. But somehow has a bit too much burnt taste. Like eating a mouthful of semi sweet morsels when you were expecting dark chocolate. Great beer.

A very good red, which is good enough on its own, it doesn't need to be anything more than that. But it introduces the concept of the Valentine's beer - a new seasonal! I love it!

So now I want it to embrace its own concept! I want cinnamon! Or vanilla! Or chocolate malt! Or...something I can't even think of. I want the seasonal "twist".

Why NOT a vanilla, or chocolate, barrel-aged red ale? This concept fires the imagination. The space is there. This beer's a good red, a great red, even. But it doesn't really try to occupy that space.
