COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts. This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge. Enjoy the ‘twilight’ for the bright and brassy hops!

Enjoyed on tap in a tulip glass. The beer pours an opaque black color with a slight off-white head. The nose does not give quite the hop complexity I’d expected (the beer was listed as a black IPA), and instead shows about a 50/50 combination of citrusy (Cascade) hops and roasted malts. The palate is decidedly roasted, giving hints of malt sweetness, but some obvious flavors of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and espresso. It isn’t quite a stout or a baltic porter, but its not quite an IPA, either. Overall, not great, but an interesting, if muddled, hybrid.

Brewed in the USA..... On tap at Victory !!! Pours a dark amber brown color with a nice thick white head. Aroma of tangerines, hops, malts and caramel. Taste of dark roasted malts, grapefruit, pine, tangerines and biscuits. Mouthfeel is very smooth, medium in carbonation and body with some lingering hop bite at the finish. The 8.9% is hidden very well and i could drink this all night long. This was simply delicious !!! I really wanted to take home a growler of this fine brew. Unfortunately they were running low. :(

blankboy (6921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2009
Draught at ’Cole’s Rare Beer Fest’, Buffalo, NY. Pours a very deep ruby, almost brown, with a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma’s a bit roasty along with lots of hops and notes of cocoa, chocolate and citrus fruit. Flavour’s sweet, slightly sugary, lightly roasted and fruity -- it reminds me of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange along with lots of hops. Finish is quite bitter. Average to medium bodied. Very good, I quite enjoyed it.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
On tap at Cole’s rare beer fest, Buffalo. Aroma is very hoppy with some malt and alcohol. Very dark brown with not much of a head. Taste is again very hoppy. Body is well carbonated if on the light to medium side. Some really nice malt in here and certainly one of the better black IPA type beers I have tried.
