Appearance: Red appearance, lingering head, great look to this beer. Smell: Quite floral in the hop character. Taste: Different from the nose, the taste of the hops struck me as perfume-y and bitter. I did not dig the heavy bitter lack of balance. Mouthfeel: Pretty heavy body. Drinkability: For every red beer fan like myself, I’m sure there’s someone who loves this. But for me, Shark Attack is just so, so. (Perfume-ey hops don’t anything for me)

rumore (868) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 19, 2017
75cl bottle from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours intense dark brown with very fine whitish foam. Aroma is malty, red fruits, herbal. Body is relatively dense with average carbonation. Taste is markedly bitter, with some good sweetness behind, quite an alcoholic feeling. Some sourness too. Finish is long and intensely bitter.

77ships (11481) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 8, 2017
[Malmö 2017] Draft sample @ The Bishops Arms Savoy. Dark amber, creamy tanned head. Nose is perfume, leaves, herbal cough syrup sweet. Taste is strange perfume, pine, sweet cough syrup, perfume. Body is malt syrup. Malt dominates too much lacking the pine & resin hops makes it feel like a very old school DIPA with bit too much age on it. might be a good beer but to out of synch with current preferences it feels or just mine given the quite high score.

ciocanelu (3112) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 7, 2017
Hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malt, light caramel, resiny/piney hops and a hint of fenel. Taste is nutty, bitter and resiny with some dried orange notes. Medium body and carbonation. Complex, tasty and quite easy drinking for its ABV.

Desverger (13711) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2017
Bottle thanks to and shared with the Mrs at home - pours dark amber with a beige head. Sweet and slight toasted biscuit malty with notes of caramel and toffee, some melted fudge, some marmalade fruity shred, nice hoppy backing, pine needles, warming sweet malty into the close.

ajnepple (7342) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2017
On tap at First Draft Taproom & Kitchen. Reddish amber appearance with a lingering tan head. Mild aroma of pine, resinous hops, caramel malt, toffee and toasted grain. Similar flavor, adding moderate hop bitterness and a mild grainy sweetness. Medium body with a slight dry feel. Slightly disappointing overall.

chadski (173) - California, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Nose is malt and molasses. Crystallized brown sugar flavors. Fully bodied. Another solid offering from Port.

3.7
mezr (158) - California, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a glass it shows a clear reddish-orange with a thick beige head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is strong caramel, ripe fruit and a bit of pine in the background. The smooth malty taste quickly gives way to a pronounced bitter that carries all the way through a long finish with hints of alcohol rising to the surface. Soft carbonation, medium body, and almost creamy on the palate.

3.6
odinstyr (807) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2017
Pours an amber with moderate head. Smells of crisp bread and citrusy hops. Taste is bitter and sweet well balanced.

3.6
luttonm (6963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2017
GG, Seattle. Thin creamy head, lacing some. Very dark red-orange-brown pour. Complex body and aroma. Bitter grain, dense fruit, amber malts. Cranberry tart alcohol presence, thick creamy body. Cool smooth presence overall, nicely astringent alcohol to complete the body. A bit of an oddity for me.. somewhat a dipa mixed with an amber. Not bad.
