Don’t spend this Single Awareness Day alone – grab a beer! This red-blooded cousin of Evil Dead Red Ale, our Halloween Brew, is a beautiful crimson color. Notes of caramel, toast, and bittersweet chocolate balance an intense bouquet of floral hop aromas that we know you’ll fall in love with. The finish leaves a pleasant, full-bodied sweetness on the palate that won’t spread angry rumors about you to all your friends like that one time when I was…ohh…uhh…Happy Valentine’s Day!

22oz bomber size bottle acquired by blondredhead from Total Wine & Spirits in Roseville. Consumed in a Belgian snifter glass. Deep ruby red/amber colored ale with an off white head. Aroma is kind of like a subdued IPA...hoppy qualities are present right away. Taste has a malty influence with sweetness more prevalent than expected. Some chocolate and caramel characteristics. Hop comes back towards the end with some light bitterness and a piney resin. Mouthfeel mirrors a traditional IPA with a shorter finish. Overall, I’m enjoying this one more than anticipated. Alesmith has better options but as their seasonals go, I can definitely get behind this one. The band is terrible. The beer is really good.

Not as good as Alesmith's other seasonals but still pretty good. A nice bitterness for an amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bomber. Pours a ruby red and makes a thin beige head. Not much lacing. Aroma is of spices and malt and a bit of cherry. Tastes very malty with a bit of coriander. Love this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

light reddish brown under a dense crown of light beige foam. Pleasant malt aroma, prunes, candy, bread and toffee. On the other hand green pine cones, resins and orange peels. In the mouth a pleasant bitterness that cohabits with the sweetness of the malt. Notes of citrus peels, resins, pineapples and oranges in taste, lasting aftertaste quite remarkable. Soft and full bodied with a nice level of carbonation.

Poured from the bomber reddish brown with white head. Taste is a spicy, sweet malty brown ale, I like the 3-6’s alcohol content, but if you are going to advertise this to people feeling bad about themselves about being alone on a greeting card and teddy bear company created holiday make it 10-12% so they can really forget their troubles, otherwise pretty good.

How hadn’t I reviewed this yet? Poor form, clown. Welp, bomber. Hazy dark reddish brown color with a sticky off-white head. Big hop aroma, floral and citrusy, with toasty caramel notes backing it up. The flavor is quite nice, toasty with a bitter finish. Sweet caramel/cocoa, but mostly dry. Medium-bodied with a biting bitterness. Good.
