Cool label! Pours with an amber color with a small head. Light amounts of dark fruits in the aroma. Some caramel, dark fruit, and metallic flavors. As it warmed it reminded me of a tawny port.

Bottle with the goofy label for the US market. Golden lager appearance with a reddish tint and a pretty decent head. Very sweet aroma, with a hint of cooked sugar. Drinks with a pronounced biscuit lead-in, followed with an oddly partnered white grape component. There’s not much of a hint of 8.2%, I must admit. Kinda unusual. Not disgusting.

Pours a cream, three-finger head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Almost clear red/amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Malty nose. Flavor is caramel and toffee. Higher ABV is hidden. $4.50 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Pours an off copperish/orange. A tad sweet for my taste. I can imagine this would get better upon drinking a few PorterPounder (7961) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Athens, Ga. - Five Points Bottle Shop - 500 ml bottle. Dark orange pour, little to no head and one of the cheesiest labels ever known to man - what is this Teen Wolf? Aroma of pencil shavings and overripe fruit. Flavor is artificially sweet with some hard candy flavors, white grapes and a hint of maple syrup. Mouthfeel is pasty and artificial.

Slightly hazy amber pour with a foamy white head. Tart berry aroma and grain. Grape berry and apple flavors, smooth and overly sweet. Drake (13725) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2009
500 mL bottle from the place next to the Libation Station in Johnson City, TN. Pours a clear dark orange amber with a thin head. Aroma is grainy, sweet malts and raisin and toffee. Taste is toffee, grain, dark fruits, light booze. Slightly tart. Medium bodied. mansquito (6425) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Pours a copper color with teenie white head. Then aroma is fruity and boozy. Taste is pretty bad a first, but as you keep drinking it gets a little better. Lots of booze and malt flavor. Same alcohol content as 211, but this is a lot better. robforbes (2241) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2009
pours a semi-clear dark copper with a small white head that dissipates quickly, and some lacing.
smell is of malt, pear, peach, some floral, and some caramel.
taste is thick, dry, tart, sour, malt, grain, some citrus, and some caramel, ends dry and somewhat bitter. puboflyons (3431) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 26, 2009
From the 1 pt. 0.9 fl. oz bottle marked L.67287. The pour is a slightly clouded copper with practically no head or lacing. The aroma is ridiculously sweet and malty. It’s like smelling a caramel flavored ice cream sundae. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is wickedly sweet to the point of extreme but these are sweet malts and a huge dose of brewer’s sugar I would bet. You would barely know you are drinking an 8.2% ABV beer until you feel it a bit later.
