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.
