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.

Uhhmeister (111) - - MAR 27, 2016
Od razu po przelaniu pojawia się przepiękny aromat, bucha wręcz. Jest to, co lubie w Red Ale, czy cała gama przepięknych słodowych nut. Jest tu syrop klonowy, wspaniały karmel, ciasto marchewkowe, trochę skórki czarnego chleba, wszystko wkomponowane idealnie w nieziemsko zbalansowaną słodycz. W smaku znowu słodycz, aczkolwiek dochodzi niezbyt wysoka kontra goryczkowa w ziołowej postaci. Doszło jakby trochę czekolady i rodzynki, reszta tak jak w aromacie (i całe szczęście). Ogółem to piwo to poemat na temat słodów, coś co daję do myślenia, że nie tylko chmielem człowiek żyje,

Echon (282) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2016
Dark red body with a creamy head.
Aroma and flavour are hoppy and malty, with notes of dried fruit. Dry taste with medium bitterness. Dry finish.
Medium body with soft/average carbonation.

Good, but nothing memorable. The hoppy character does not seem to match the rest of the flavour profile very well. It is also too dry for me.
