Pours a dark golden well carbonated color. Aroma of bananas . oily hops and sweet bread very nice. Creamy hop flavor not overwhelming. Light fruity flavors with a nice malty touch. Palate is non-discript but earthy. Very drinkable, happy 3rd.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Golden body with a light white lace, aroma is caramel malts and cheesy hops... this might be an old bottle... flavor is big sweet malt, some hot alcohol, pungent hop bitters that seem a bit stale, possibly aged a little too long, cheesy centennial warrior juice, heavy body

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2010
Beautiful orange with a low head. Aroma of peach, grape and caramel. The flavour is fruity with notes of mango, orange, lemon a bit of salt and way too much alcohol. Nice palate though, with a full body, oily texture and a long bitter finish.

Bottled 660 ml at Beer Hunters
Hazy orange color, small white head. Hoppy, glueish aroma, some tangerine and alcohol. Glueish, a bit yeasty hoppy. Some fruityness. Too much solvent and alcohol, bad price/quality-ratio.

argo0 (13069) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 21, 2010
22oz bottle. Medium off-white head atop hazy apple juice body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange/grapefruit, some melon, light alcohol. taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some orange, resin, alcohol. Medium-full body, some resin. Starts decent, but ultimately the booziness, which becomes more noticeable as it warms, detracts.

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2010
Cloudy light amber color; the bottle has been shaken a bit. Fruity aroma, with very mature apples, sweaty and cheesy hops. Strong body, very strong flavor, of malt and toffee, with good sweetness level; the malt and hop combination produce a nutty touch too; the hop brings in the fruity side (mainly bitter oranges); more fruity and less resiny than many from the same brewery. More hop oils in the final. Powerful and excellent as often, from Port.
