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.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, caramelized malts and floral hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with strong but not over-powering burst of hops bitterness. Then some citrus and caramel sweetness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, good kick, very good representation of style, this is an excellent beer to pound down for a while.
