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 is Money! Super hoppy red. Very bitter and backed with lots of caramel sweetness to balance it out. Its a shame it isn’t around more often

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Belle couleur ambrée rubis. Fine mousse. CO2 moyen. Belle bouche maltée, pointe de caramel, superbement équilibrée. Rondeur et douceur côtoient le grain et l'alcool. Tres belle bière.

nimbleprop (6173) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 7, 2015
22oz bottle from Dominion Beer and Wine pours a murky, garnet amber with some sudsy, off white head. Nose has a lot of orange, both juice and rind, plenty of soap and pine too, some definite cracker/biscuit too, maybe a little earthy honey comb. Flavor follows right along, the malt backbone is caramel and biscuit, almost a little bit of cocoa powder too, orange, soap, pine, dried herbs. Full bodied, bitter but also dry.

Guerde (1233) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2015
(bottle) Pours a, well, red color with a medium light tan head. Aroma of powdered Tang explodes out of the glass. Further scents of juicy navel orange, tangerine, and perhaps lychee fruit as well are perceived. This is a citrus explosion. The underlying malts mixed with the citrus hops throw off a bit of an iced tea vibe as well. The flavor is heavier on the malt than expected, with some sweet caramel coming through pretty strong that is coupled with a bready component that when combined is propelled into sweet roll harbor. After rolling out of sweet roll harbor the flavor turns hard to starboard and is awash in an orange juice wake. Post orange juice turns to resinous and tea-like hops that clean up the sweetness quite well. Could be a lingering prune note in the far finish. Mouthfeel is medium and carb is dialed in. Overall this is another unsurprisingly solid beer from a very consistent brewery.

Braudog (6048) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle. As advertised, this is a ghoulish, murky red with a giant top. It has a strong essence of caramel malt. This drinks with a sweet malty character, toffee and sugar over the top. (#6041, 10/4/2015)
