perhaps best served at 98.6 f while viewing werner herzog's film of the same name. am i bloodthirsty enough to drink a brew so red and wicked?
were any virgins violated in the making of this?
will it make me a creature of the night?
The villagers fear this,they cling to their pathetic adjunct corn beer and make futile cross signs with their fingers.
I thirst for fear> I grab the neck,aggressively,decapitate this hollow vessel and let it's precious fluids bleed out into my goblet.
it is red
like beer with a few tablespoons of human blood. there's a short lived head. life is so short...hazy..like english fog,but with blood in it.
aroma--citrus,dark fruits,a hint of yeast,a hint of caramel,a hint of dark secrets i should never hear.
flavors--- sort of a rich lead in with a sweet lure to bring me to ruin. it shifts,cunningly,into a citric,grapefruit bite and the deed is finished. a trickster? a monster? no. it would seem this creature has a good heart.
a bit more malt side than a typical ipa,and the ample hops, grapefruit and pine/evergreen give it a charachter of dark cascadian or a robust dipa. there's another kind of earthy/woody something i can't pin down, not big like a wooden stake to the heart,subtle like just a big splinter.
altogether seductively tasty. one can not taste blood nor bats nor pure evil in this.
mouth feels right...the bite is gentle and with sweetness,and all as smooth as a velvet cape. it says "stock ale". it resembles "red rocket". the hop finish is well done.
drinkability would i risk my soul for one more? probably.
