Reddish copper with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt, light chocolate, toffee, toasted malt and a hint of smoke. Taste is mild and thin with lightly toasted malt, caramel and not much else. Typical Magic Hat fodder. GhostFace (477) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2011
deep red pour with a slight tan head. smells of carame, and a hint of butterscotch. medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lingering roasty finish. decent brew out of the variety pack. scarletfire65 (1505) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle from Night of The Living Dead Variety Pack. Pretty red color, nice off white head. Aroma is earthy, nutty, caramel malt, apple. Body is medium, flavors mirror the nose. The finish is slightly flawed, astringent and harsh. Finishes with a toasty, slightly smokiness, very much like a scotch ale. DasBierChef (1084) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Pours a deep dark red. Aroma is very malty and quite nice. Taste is just a good. Impressive! craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Dark red pour with a smallish head. Aroma and flavor both hold sweet cream, caramel, syrup, and a touch of apple fruitiness. Ok but I’m shocked this is rated so highly. Pretty meh as far as I can tell.

Aroma is interesting, very roasty like cocoa, love the color it gives! And in the glass it intrigues me to taste.... Its pretty good (the pregame is better than the event.) But I like it, nice and light with the flavors of a heavier brew. Has a funny/sweet taste that stays on my tongue. Overall I say give it a taste, it might blow your mind?

Pours a clear mahogany with fair tan head ring. Decent caramel toasty nose with sweet and nutty flavor. A little astringent, but overall, pretty nice. Has more scotch ale notes. smackie (54) - St. Augustine, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Malty presents, A little fizzy on the tongue. Sharp club soda finish. Given as a gift in a Mixed 12 pack including #9, HiPA, and Hex. Ron (4180) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2011
2011 Brewfest Roch. Poured clear brown with a mushroom tan head. nose of oat and sweetness. roasted malt warmth on the tongue with nuts and breadyness. Still a bit thin but at least it somewhat represents a red. Some people at the fest, say it is not as good as it used to be. (It’s not my type) topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Pours a reddish amber with an off white head. Aroma is grainy, caramel, and a little toast. Flavor is grainy, sweet malt, toasted nuts, lightly earthy.
