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.

jamestulloch (2688) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy amber/red body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of liquorice, pine, resin, Blackjacks and parma violets. Flavour of floral hops, resin, grapefruit, lychee and toffee. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. I do love a hoppy Amber Ale. This is my favourite one yet.

pastamahsta (5) - California, USA - FEB 4, 2016 does not count
If you’re having one or two, this beer is perfect. But the finish can build up on you if you’re not used to a little tartness in your reds. The finish is the only knock on this otherwise fantastic ale.

rosenbergh (9502) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
22 oz bottle. Bottled on 08/21/15. Thanks to Timo A!
Cloudy red color with a small light tan head. Dark hops, caramel malt and sweetness in the aroma. Dry citrusy and resiny hops and caramel malt in the flavor. Balanced but really dark hopped. A bit unfresh. We’re going to get you. We’re going to get you. Not another peep. Time to go to sleep.

procraste (384) - FRANCE - JAN 20, 2016
En effet, c’est pas mal smooth et crémeux aussi.ça sent un peu étrange puis en bouche, il y a un petit côté étrange aussi, un peu comme une porter mal fagotée ou un barley wine malpoli ... Je suis pas fan. La version Saint Valentin était nettement plus sympathique
