2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 30-06-L158-59-2I.The color is reddish-amber with a small, short-lived off-white head. There are caramel malts on the nose along with a peanut butter-like ester that was a little distracting. The body is watery to medium. The taste also has this peanut butter like thing going on with a moderate bitterness that saves the day a little. I prefer their standard Nut Brown to this.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear copper brown. This tastes likeregular Newcastle but with a little rye. Not enough difference for me.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Basically a somewhat more robust Newcastle Brown. Pours amber, small lacy head. Thin and slippery mouthfeel. Some maltiness on the nose, taste is slightly sweet with a fairly substantial finishing bitterness. Medicinal hops and inappropriate cold-fermentation aromas follow, along with a bit of good caramel character. Overall doesnít really hold together, but isnít unpleasant either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Darkish copper-brown with a lasting quarter inch of cream. Aroma of dark toasted bread, pecan, and touches of orange toffee and cocoa powder. Tastes of lightly tart berries, caramel apple, earthy cocoa powder, toasted rye, orange, and some woody pith. Medium body is sweetish on the front, but is well balanced by a pleasant astringency from the roasted malt, the peppery rye, and earthy hops. Interesting industrial brew; I like it much better than the regular brown.

"Blood Red" and the Werewolf name are its only claims to fame! Strange grainy taste and thin body. Ugh!

Not a big fan. Odd taste, like charcoal. Don't really get how this qualifies as a fall seasonal. More like a winter beer.

Bottle at TPSA. Pours a weird gold-brown with no head to speak of; itís just weird looking. Nose is light hops and not much else. There is some hops bitterness on the tongue, but for an ESB this has almost no body to it; itís thin as Kate Moss. Finish is clean, at least. Insubstantial and forgettable.

Sold as "blood red" the actual poor is more of a dirt brown. Watery taste mixed with burnt coffee. Would not recommend.
