*Note - The name is of course in reference to Phish Halloween at Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City.

Tasting Note - Well, this one is a failure. Definitely way overspiced and barely drinkable. Probably coulda done without that addition of the chinese five spice, huh? Hopefully this thing mellows out a bit and I'll try it again after a month or two.
