This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

porterhouse's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 20, 2007
(22 oz. bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julios Liquors, cellared for 9 mos. after purchase) A hoppy one for sure...Pours cloudy medium-dark amber with a firm one finger of lightly amberish biege head. Very good-looking beer when poured. Nose is caramel and vanilla, as well as pine and grapefruit rind. Mouthfeel smooth and soft, a little bit of heft. Heavy, foamy rings of lacing. Flavor is pretty much about the hops, quite bitter up front and on through finish. A good solid dose of pine and grapefruit over a lighter dose of vanilla and caramel maltiness. A little too heavy on the hops for me but nose, palate and appearance all very nice.

Cerveza color ámbar rojizo. Aromas de predominio cítrico, con toques acaramelados. Al paladar se perciben lúpulos cítricos, con un poco de toque a caramelo con el retrogusto amargo característico de esta cervecería, el cual perdura unos minutos. Excelente cerveza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

matis (259) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Can from Berlin - BB May 2017. Malty aroma of dark fruits. So flat in taste... some grass, some herbs, tea (?), earth and nothing much more. Bitter, disturbing aftertaste. Huge disappointment. What the fuck with this legendary ale???

shreddermx (64) - POLAND - JAN 13, 2017
Stone Berlin. Puszka 500ml. Barwa rubinowa, piwo opalizujące. Piana bardzo obfita, zbita, kremowa w kolorze beżowym. Wygląda pięknie. Aromat jest bardzo ciekawy. Ciemne owoce, rodzynki - przypomina belgijskiego quadrupla. Do tego dochodzi fajna chmielowość: żywica, igły sosnowe. Na słodko. Piwo w smaku jest rwnież bardzo ciekawe, są rodzynki, ciemne owoce, karmel i chmiel. Za tym idzie konkretna goryczka, grejpfrutowo-żywiczna. Wysoka i przyjemna. Piwo bardzo ciekawe, warte sprobowania.

WoW an Arrogant Bastard just popped up right in front of me. And a big waring on the can that I might not like this. Ha ha it is surely a solid lovely brew. Everyone likes this.
A really lovely clear mahogany color with a fine tan head. Looks good and inviting. Fine lacing also. Quite moderate intensity in the aroma. Mostly caramel malt in the nose. Not that inviting. Medium + body and a fine carbonation level. Easy to drink. Not enough sweetness to back up the bitterness. A bit unbalanced actually. Caramel bomb de lux. It actually kills the grapefruit hoppy goodies almost completely. Not good. Also some dried fruit in the flavor.
The warning was right. I did not like this.
[Can from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge in Oslo, Norway]
