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.

22 oz bottle. Pours deep ruby red amber with a big fluffy light tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet nutty caramel malts with fruity piney hops.

The flavor is sweet nutty caramel malt with a lot of fruit and a piney resiny hop finish with a little alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice hoppy red.

Tap @ Hamilton's. Pours clear auburn with a skimpy white head. Caramel, grapefruit, and pine dominate the nose. Full, tangy grapefruit and resin hop flavor tempered nicely by the malt. The caramel thankfully does not overwhelm. Velvet mouthfeel. I just can't get enough of the hops in this one. Its so good.

This reminds me of Tocabaga or Nugget Nectar as the hops are fruity and the malt is strong with barley and caramel malt. The hop blend delivers some orange, nectarines and grapefruit. There is a floral perfume like hop flavor that I did not like but was fleeting. The backbone is strong barley malt.
