COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed only for Halloween, this Belgian style Double Red ale is full bodied and blood red in color. Medium Crystal, Vienna and Caramel malts are used in addition to Naked Oats to create rich toffee and nutty flavors with hints of hazelnut. Generously kettle hopped and dry hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo and Saaz hops and fermented with a special Trappist Ale yeast strain providing assertive fruity and spicy notes with hints of tropical fruits, citrus, red apple, bubblegum and berry.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a gray head that laces slightly and dissipates to the edges. Aroma has strong grassy hops with a bit of resin and underlying bread and booze. Flavor has grass and pint up front with earthy sweet grains and a bit of booze.

hazy amber color, no heas, somewhat lacy. nose of sweet malt, perhaps a trace of bubblegum, with an obvious hop presence. flavor is creamy malty with a nice citrusy and piney hop offset. medium bodied, long lasting bitter finish. you can detect just a trace of the 9% abv. sampled at rockfest 2010.

9th October 2008. GABF. This was displayed at 8.1% abv. Lovely name! Clear brown beer. Very dry palate. Sweet and a little fruity with a touch or rye like aromatics.

From the Bottle at the Marriott Hotel, Denver 26/09/2009 (2008 Vintage) Hop and fruity banana aroma. Golden coloured a little rich on the palate and strong in alcohol with a hint of dryness in a crisp malt finish.

#200. On tap at RB- thanks Gail. 10 oz goblet. Wanted to try the barrel aged but they were out of it- darn. Caramel brown pour, aroma is spice, yeast, sweet malt. Nice flavor- didnt pick up the hops as much as the other reviews, but enjoyed the spiciness and slight sweetness- wasnt cloying in my opinion. Nice beer.

Served in a goblet. Pours cloudy reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of some hops, but malt sweetness, caramel, and the bubblegum aroma of the yeast dominate. Smooth flavor, fairly sweet. Does a good job of hiding the 9% ABV.

TheAlum (5672) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Goblet served on tap at the brewpub (Lombard, IL). Murky dark amber, brownish red with decent tannish head that sticks around and laces well. Aromas are a hoppy melange of grapefruit and flowers, sweet ans bitter mesh with caramel and toffee, some biscuit, a touch of raisin, belgian spicy yeast in mellow amounts and a touch of estery fruit. Initial is a bit of fruity belgian esters, a good citrusy and floral hopping. Toasty toffee and caramel malts, a touch of oatmeal sweetness. A faint raisin giddyup. Lighter bodied than expected, but still a good hop stick to palate. This is a nice stronger brew, well hopped and meshing well with the lighter Belgian yeast spice and generous citrusy hops.

tmoreau (2356) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2009
On at Yorktown for the 09 seasonal tapping. I believe 8.1% abv for this version. Poured to a shaker, a very cloudy reddish brown,..almost yeasty turbidity. The head appeared light tan and modest, leaving some clingy ribbons of lacing. The aroma was a little yeast, spiciness, and a whiff of pine needles. The flavor exposed more with subtle alcohol, some malt sweetness, maybe a bit of caramel layered in, mid-fruit and citrus, and some strong hop bitterness. An interesting, complex brew that needs to settle to appreciate the full effect. Will sample again later.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2009
tap at rockfest 09... dark caramel brown pour with a soapy off-white head... aroma of soft earthy floral hops but not too assertive. sweeter backdrop behind the upfront hops... flavors of earthy sweet hops with a balancing malt undertone. soft carbonation.
