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.

fidelis83 (2196) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 28, 2013
nearly clear copper pour with a 1 finger, oily yellow cake head. Aroma is loaded with caramel and toffee, with some nice, pine, citrus and spicy hops and a little toast and biscuit. Flavor is again full of caramel and toffee, some nice toasty notes, light roast nuts, lots of sweet pine, some grapefruit and spicy hops coming in toward the finish along with some interesting berry- like fruity esters and a nice, lingering earthy, toasty grain note that really sells it as a proper autumn seasonal beer. Medium body, slightly syrupy entry, off dry finish, lingering dryness, medium, sharp and lively carbonation. Really pretty fantastic stuff very well put together, but maybe a bit too boozy and astringent.

freretoc (1134) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 12, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 66cl à la brasserie. Couleur ambrée qui tire clairement sur le rubis, mousse moyenne tout comme l’effervescence. Nez sur le caramel, En bouche attaque sur la caramel, le café, le malt fraichement moulu, puis fin de bouche sur le poivre et le clou de girofle excellent équilibre et (et de très loin) la meilleure ambrée que j’ai bu.

Vells (1004) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 11, 2015
And alesmith did it again.. Awesome balance between huge maltiness, caramel and loads of hops, mostly citrusy, but I love that pine kick. Moderate to intense sweetness, moderate bitterness with strong and quite long bittersweet finish. . Kinda reminds me of barleywine, but still - awesome amber

shreddermx (39) - POLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Barwa rubinowa. Piana beżowa, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa z niezłym lacing’iem. W aromacie na pierwszy plan wybija się żywica a nastepnie owoce i sporo karmelu i gdzies tam w tle majaczy miód. W smaku piwo oferuje podobne wrazenia jak w aromacie, goryczka jest dosc wysoka ale krótka i bardzo przyjemna. Można wyczuć sporo ciała, jednak piwo jest dość gładkie i bardzo pijalne.
