Review – Port Brewing Shark Attack Double Red Ale
Port Brewing Shark Attack Double Red Ale
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a room temperature pint glass.
Rich and dark caramel color with hints of pink/red throughout. Lots of head with over two fingers of light brown foam that leaves lots of lace.
Very hoppy smelling with traces of fresh rolls or biscuits. One of the strongest smelling beers I have come across. Quite extreme.
A little grassy with resins from the hops but mostly thick and heavy malt flavors. I shared a couple sips with friends and it was far too rich for their blood but I enjoyed it very much.
Warming sensation from the alcohol intertwined with the bubbly goodness from the carbonation. Thick and chewy on the way down, leaving a coating of seemingly solid matter on the tongue.
I also received this brew from my buddy Dan in California. I really liked the unique qualities such as strong malts with lots of hops. Extreme beers are really my thing lately and Port did not disappoint. I also love the bottle used because it can be reused for home brew. Those who brew know the joys of bottling so it makes sense to collect larger bottle so you can spend less time bottling and more time drinking. Right? Thought so.
