Had this beer on tap at the Nook in Huntsville, AL on a warn November evening. Since I was siting in the outdoor patio area it was hard to see the color but it was very dark and opaque. There was no head on this pour but that did not distract from the uniquely awesome taste. It has a smooth mellow taste with lots of malt and a hint of maybe pumpkin and hardly any hops. It even went good with a big bowl of red beans and rice. A bit expensive at $9 a glass but well worth the the price for the experience of just drinking it. I would buy it again and again if available. Yellowhammer continues to set the standard for Northern Alabama.

A special Halloween release, and a real gender bender of a style. From the breweries description: Spicy, dark red belgian specialty ale aged on toasted cherry wood.
A: Blood red, and quite thick. Can't see through it at all. Comes with a solid 1 finger tan head that dissipates quickly (likely do to the alcohol). Certainly a fitting appearance for Halloween.
S: Complex nose of Belgian funk, some sweet malts, and a very profound layer of cherry and oak. Just the slightest hint of its ABV here with the alcohol.
T: Just as complex as anticipated. Lots of malt forwardness with a caramel and sugary nature. Then, the yeasty Belgian quality comes through with added smokey cherry wood. Finishes with a light alcohol twang.
M: Surprisingly lighter bodied for the ABV, but with some small levels of stickiness to the gums. Not highly carbonated, but finishes smooth with minor alcohol burn after.
O: A very unique outing. Fitting for Halloween in its dark, complex nature, and damn tasty. Yellowhammer continues to produce some of the best high alcohol beers I've tasted.
Side Note: This beer is only available (at least, in 2011), at The Nook. And it'll run ya $9 a glass. So be careful and not enjoy too many.
