Pours a pitch black and opaque color with red hues when looked against the light.

Aroma is of roasted malts, chocolate and some floral and fruity hops.

Taste follows nose with lots of malt, chocolate and coffee with a bitter finish.

Body is medium with some malt bitterness and a dry finish.

Overall a very nice porter with lots of hop presence and high drinkability.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Duvel tulip. Shared by BigSexy410; thanks man, this was a Want of mine. 2010 vintage.

a - Pours a jet black color with an inch of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of pine hops, chocolate, roasted malts, and light citrus hops. Interesting.

t - Tastes of pine hops, citrus hops, floral notes, soap, roasted malts, chocolate, and sweet sugar or fruit. Again interesting.

m - Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth.

d - An interesting porter; can definitely see the resemblance to Alpha King with the pine hops. Lots of pine and chocolate/roasted malts; definitely enjoyable. Would have again.
