COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Evil Dead Red Ale (also known as Dead by Dawn)

Alesmith's Decadence Anniversary Ale was originally brewed in 2005 to celebrate our first decade in business. The brewers at Alesmith had such a great time concocting Decadence that they decided to make it an annual event, and brew a new style each year to commemorate our Anniversary. The second release in the Decadence series, Dead by Dawn, was inspired by our own seasonal specialty ale, Evil Dead Red. What if we made it bigger, bolder and even more evil? The result is Decadence 2006 Dead by Dawn, a devilicious auburn-colored ale with a complex sweet caramel maltiness balanced by the just the right amount of hop bitterness. Dead by Dawn showcases an enticing hop flavor and intense hop aroma that rounds out this rich, full-bodied ale. Join our Anniversary Celebration with Decadence. You'll soon discover why Alesmith is known around the world as the place to find Legendary Craftsmanship.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Pours a slightly hazy, orangey brown with a dense, light brown head leaving some lacework. Fat aroma of overripe fruit and hops. Surprisingly this isn’t overly full-bodied. Intense aromas of raisins and overripe fruit and then classical accents of American aroma hops in the finish. Good but not outstanding. 280907

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 4th October 2008. Imperial Evil Dead Red edition! Cloudy dark brown beer with a frothy tan head. Thick chocolatey malt start leading in to a sweet and sour mid with more chocolate and some fruit. Lingering sour brandy tones in the aftertaste. Complex and tasty.
