Desverger (2730) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle from BarleyWine, Copenhagen - fuzzy orange coloured pour with good white head and lacing. Big hoppy fruity aroma and taste, punchy citrus flavours, lots of pine, warming caramel malty, masks the booze well. Solid bitter finish. Gorgeous.

Bottle via trade. Pours orange with medium head. Aroma was floral, pine, sweet malts, and alcohol. Taste was bitter, but at the same time had a sweetness. Could have sworn I tasted some red grapes in there. The alcohol was definitely present and it felt like a big boozy strong ale. I wasn’t really thrilled with it, but glad I got to try this one.

Maltymess (4) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2014 does not count
Pours a deep orange minimal head aroma is sweet malty and hoppy . Taste is good hoppy and malty, leaves a burn from the alcohol but is to be expected at 9%. Would have this again.

Pours a cloudy gold color with nice white lacing. Smells of caramel and malt. A very good beer that I would be happy to drink all the time.

Stew41 (1788) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2014
High powered with a big malt backbone to carry the hops. Thick and chewy, a meal in itself. Sweet too, and pushes the boundaries for my palate in this respect. Regardless loads of fun.

Advocate_Ames (464) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Pours a pale orange color with a foamy head. The aroma is hop driven. There is nice floral citrus notes with pine, booze, and sweet malt scents. As for taste it was strongly bitter but that bitterness was somewhat off set by the other flavors of methonal like alcohol, sugary malts, and slight citrus grapefruit flavor. Overall this was a good beverage but the bitterness was not to my desired liking. The bitter taste was not masked well by the other ingredients.

GenDV138 (2579) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
22 ounce bottle (bottled 4/8/2014) poured into a tulip. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with 3 fingers of off-white head. Head fades slowly and leaves nice lacing behind. Fantastic lacing throughout drinking it. Aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, floral notes, piney hops. Tastes of tropical fruit, citrus, pine/resin, light booze, floral notes, piney hops, a bit of honey. Medium body with a dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Another really nice double IPA from Port Brewing.
