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.

mgajdaczewa (828) - Katowice, POLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Piękny aromat żywiczny połączony ze słodkim karmelem i leciutką owocową nutą. W smaku jeszcze lepiej i jeszcze intensywniej, smakuje jak lekko karmelowy sok z żywicy , porządna, krótka i arcyprzyjemna goryczka, gładkie i pełne, do tego niezwykle pijalne. Rzeczywiście, trudno wyobrazić sobie lepsze piwo w tym stylu.

superspak (3235) - Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/20/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness/chocolate, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness/chocolate, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, pine, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness/chocolate, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/piney hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice red ale. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/pine hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
