Port Brewing Shark Attack

Beer: Shark Attack
 Port Brewing Brewing Company
Style: Imperial Red Ale
ABV: 9.0%


Serving Style: Bottle
Drinking Establishment: Chez Wood
Primary Consumer: Kerensa




Sight: This is as murky as that pond you feared swimming in when you were a kid. It has a mahogany body with a huge sculptural head that leaves a thick lacing as it goes down the glass. An unsettling amount of yeast particulates hang in suspension.

Smell: The aroma is defined by the overwhelming smell of rubbing alcohol and bottom shelf liquor.

Flavor: Thankfully, the taste isn’t as off putting as its torturous smell. The flavors are an astringent bitterness from the hops. Hmm, that’s about it.

Feel: Medium body with tons of carbonation and a slight burning feeling from the high ABV.

Concluding Remark: Well, Port Brewing promises a “lethal amount of hops” that are still supposedly balanced by a “boat load of crystal malt.” The former is certainly true, though the latter…not so much. Eh. Overall, Port Brewing’s Shark Attack is more like a flounder bite. I’m pretty ambivalent about this beer.
