Review - Portsmouth Brewery's Killer Bee

No commercial description available

Dynamite with a laser beam and guaranteed to blow your mind. The Killer Bee pours cloudy light amber and settles dark red with a murky body. Fully diminishing white head with great legs wrapped in glass of a beautiful challis. Packed with a strong fruity and malty aroma, the killer beer is quite pleasant to the nose and inviting to the palate. Initially heavy sweet, settling to moderately sweet with a strong alcohol presence for an average duration. Medium in body with soft carbonation and oily on the palate.

We first tasted this stinger in a 10 beer sampler. We were initially put off by the description of the honey bee provided by our waitress. We were quite surprised when it stood up tall next to most of the other offerings in the sampler, neck to neck with the Abbey Style triple. If you are in the area, you definitely need to stop into the Portsmouth Brewery and challenge the sampler.

Note: We were so impressed with this selection, that after the sampler, we ordered a pint and a growler to take home for our 2 beer guys friends and family to enjoy. The beer was quite similar to the Laughing Laird offering produced by Off Shore Brewing company. Without speaking, we knew that we weren't going home empty-handed.
