COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Released shortly before Valentine’s Day, My Bloody Valentine is the red-blooded cousin of our Halloween specialty ale, Evil Dead Red. Caramel-sweet malt is delicately balanced with floral American hop varieties for a truly unique drinking sensation. A deep mahogany red color and a big, aromatic hop profile are the signatures of this seasonal ale.

Different sort of amber. Nutty, grainy, smoky, a bit of caramel. Plenty of body. Spotty lacing, Clear orange brown. Nose is mostly chocolate malt or something of that kin. Finish is dry and hoppy, Kills the sweet nicely. Decent, not great.

Tasted from draft. Pours a deep mahogany red with slightly off white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is citrus, spices, caramel. Taste is moderate sweetness with mild bitterness. Flavors of citrus, caramel, a little dark fruits, some nuttiness. Pretty complex. Definitely a solid amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Voodoo (403) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Poured a deep, dark brown with a hint of red much like birch beer with a slight off white head.......aroma of citrusy hops, caramel maltiness......taste is clean with a touch of caramel, crisp, medium mouthfeel, with a sweet and bittered finish. Quite nice for an amber, which is not my favorite grain, but well done.
