COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of American hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer’s caramel malts. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a clear deep copper (SRM 18) body........nose is toasted malts, with mild bread, pine, citrus from the hops.......taste is slightly caramel sweet, with further toasted malt tones, pine, resin citrus notes from the hops finishing with moderate hop bitterness, balance slightly to the hops......mouth feel, medium light body, minimal alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a lovely easy drinking beer, with adequate complexity to be nicely interesting. BJCP 8/3/16/4/7

Pours a wonderful deep brownish red from a bottle, nice light tan head with beautiful lacing. Aroma is piney with a faint lemon/orange, flavor is similar built over a fine caramel sweetness. Very well-balanced, an excellent representative for the style, which I feel is not often done well. Very good beer.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Beautiful red-amber with a minimal tan and creamy head. Aroma is caramel and a bit earthy. Medium body, soft carbonation and a bit creamy on the palate. Moderately sweet with a nice bitter finish that's not overly long.

Well shit, after a day of downing beers at Societe, I decided I needed to cap it off with 2 California Amber Ales. I double fisted a bomber of Evil Dead Red alongside Smog City’s Sabre-Tooth Squirrel. When family offers you free beer, it’s only polite to take advantage. Never mind the fact that I had to shrug off some disapproving glances from my immediate family members. This particular bottle of Evil Dead Red was a bit old but the essential character was still there. Fat, rich malts with big notes of caramel and chocolate. It finishes off with dank, earthy West Coast style hops - grapefruit pith, grass, and pine. Like the film that inspired it, this brew deserves its cult status.

Malty pine hoppy nose. Pours a dark copper amber with a thick foamy off white head. Retention forever. Leaves a thick coating on the glass as it slowly fades. Smooth mouthfeel with a crisp slightly bitter finish. A hint of caramel. A fair hit of pine and some earth. Pretty solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at THT tasting. Old note. The aroma has caramel, cardamom, fruity tones. Bit hazy, amber-red coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweet, has caramel, spice. Nice one.

Beautiful beer! Soft and smooth taste with some caramel notes and flowery touches, full round taste that fills the whole palate. One of the best beers I’ve tasted lately.
