"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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at TPSA. Pours a weird gold-brown with no head to speak of; it’s 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; it’s 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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper color with a quick little off white head. Aroma is dirty water and dusty malt and not much else. Taste is more of the above with a slight bitterness in the finish and a raunchy aftertaste. Palate is watery and finishes dusty dry. It’s okay, but no reason to purchase again.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours nearly clear, red/amber/copper with tan head.
Scent is slight chocolate over earth over burnt campfire coffee.....
Taste is old metal, malt,slightly bitter woody nuts..
This is an odd duck in taste and aroma both.
It’s rather unique.

Tallahassee, Fl - Circle K - Bradfordville - 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice dark copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma of unsweetened cocoa and potting soil. Flavor is similar to the aroma with the earthy potting solid flavor dominating with some unsweetened cocoa and a bit of nuttiness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice slickness to it. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nutty sweet malt aroma - grainy, slightly toasted, notes of honey roast peanuts, tannins and faint cocoa. Good, dark rusty brown, good label and branding. Lots of rye twang. Astringent, grassy, not sweet. Although this doesn’t taste like licorice, it gave me the impression of the parched coating on licorice nonpareils or allsorts candy. At times the malting reminded me of a dubbel. Medium to slightly thin body, amateur homebrew finish. Bottle, Circle K @ Bannerman and 319.
