Reddish brown in the Duvel tulip with a nice foam rising and lots of lacing in the glass. Adequate carbonation with a lighter body, though some oily sensation. Rather sharp and winey with dark roasted malt as the main feature. Rather sweet with some mango and pineapple, for some reason.

This is certainly not very hoppy, so I'm not sure why they're bragging about the dry hopping. There is just a little bitterness to finish out each sip, but it's more malty and fruity with some molasses. There is a peculiar sweet and sour taste that cloys before long. This is an odd one and I'm glad to pour the last couple fingers out. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Texas Wine Cellars in Fredericksburg.

A: Pours a burnt reddish/brown color. A two finger beige head forms with good retention initially. The foam gently recedes to a ring that leaves some lace.
S: Tropical fruits, grassy, lightly floral. Some caramel malt sweetness. Not bad at all, jut no real porter aromas that I can tell.
T: Follows the nose up front. Big juicy tropical fruits. Very grassy as well. Lots of sweetness here. Caramel malts and brown sugar. A slightly metallic tiny flavor as well. Where is the porter?
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. A bit on the thin side though. Easy enough to drink. I could put a few away if I wanted to.

Not bad for an American Black Ale or God forbid, Black IPA. Lots of hops and black patent malt. Though I am disappointed overall. There does not seem to be any porter base, or the hops just cover up any porter there happens to be.
