I am shocked in the lack of aroma in this beer. I get nothing but a very slight, almost absent caramel note. It doesn't smell bad, it just has virtually no aroma.

Perfectly clear and deep red in color with a light tan head that laces moderately on the glass. Its a great looking beer, for sure.

Thank god it tastes better than it smells. I get a burnt sugar flavor, molasses, caramel candy, and a nice floral hop note in the background. It has a lighter body which shocked me especially for an 8% ABV beer, with medium carbonation and the finish is a touch on the dry side. It's a good beer, but not one of their best seasonals.

Reviewed from old tasting notes.

Coppery amber in color with a single finger of cream colored head with mediocre stability and lacing qualities.

Smells and tastes about the same: sweet caramel blended with plenty of juicy citric hopping and a small hit of ABV hotness, and a faint garnish of cherries.

Medium body and carbonation levels, smooth texture.

Appropriately on the sweeter side for a Halloween seasonal, I suppose... although I couldn't see myself consuming more than one bottle per session because of how sweet it is, much less the relatively high ABV...
