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.

Bottle. Pours a very deep mahogany color with a nice, off white head. Nice, hoppy aroma with a hint of caramel, cherries, and cocoa. Nice, smooth hoppy flavor. Creamy. Smooth finish. One of my more favorite from Alesmith.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5188) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a red-brown color with a large foamy tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was malty, dryish and a bit woody. The flavor was dry, malty, crystal malt, a bit of dark fruit and bread crust. Meidum length finsih. Medium body. Meh.

monkeychugg55 (931) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Dark, reddish cola color with a small, frothy, tan head. The aroma has some thick, sweet, caramel malt up front. There is also a strong herbal, resinous, and spicy hop aroma reminiscent of Columbus. The flavor starts out sweet with really rich caramel, then there’s some balancing bitterness, strong hops, but still finishes on the sweet side. Very full body for a <7% beer.

New England Bucket List Trip #155. Bomber from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Damn we killed a lot of beer that night. Pours a dark red with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of grainy malt, piney, citrus and candied citrus hops. The taste is raw malt, piney, citrus, tropical hops. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

artmcd8 (1927) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle from a bottle shop in Burlington VT. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aromas of candied orange rind. Slight pine. Taste is sweet up front and bitter at the finish. Decent but overshadowed by the other beers we were drinking at the bachelor party.

Beardaxe (288) - - MAR 1, 2015
Poured from bottle into teku glass. Great color and a citrusy hop filled aroma. Flavor is juicy hops buttressed by a nice caramel chewiness. Not the most complex of beers, but it also straddles a few styles. Unique and fun.

cards04 (2031) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours a muddy maroon color. Aromas are bread and dank vegetation. Very malty. Lots of bread... And I mean lots. Some bitterness in there too. Not my favorite alesmith offering but still a solid brew.
