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!

BeerandBlues2 (10691) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle. Pours black with a large, frothy beige head, long retention with great lacing. Aroma is average malt (light roast, bread, cookie, coffee), average hops (earthy, herbal, woody, pine), and average esters (fruity) with notes of figs and plums. Flavor is average malt (light roast, bread, cookie, coffee), heavy hops (earthy, herbal, woody, pine), and average esters (fruity) with notes of figs and plums. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation, light creaminess with a dry finish. The aroma is rather subdued and no amount of swirling seems to improve it. On the other hand, the flavor is very nice, displaying lightly roasted malt character next to some spicy and earthy hops. The alcohol content is well hidden, until you feel the warming effects in your stomach.

hopscotch (10076) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle... Clear, dark crimson ale with a mid-sized, creamy, taupe head that never fully diminishes. The nose is of cocoa, tangerine and earthy, floral hops. Full-bodied and creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor is full of roasty notes and burnt bitterness. Warming, bitter finish.

adnielsen (10037) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Tasted on tap at FreshCraft in Denver, Colorado. Dark reddish appearance reminiscent of a Bock. Also has a foamy carbonated head which almost looks like a nitro. Weak dark malty and hoppy aroma. Not too dark of body with the floral hoppy flavor. Doesn’t at all taste like it has almost 9% alcohol. Pretty good beer.

hopdog (9713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Pint on tap at Capones. Poured a darker brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of pine, earhty, roasty, floral, toasted malts, and some citrus. Tastes of pine, roasted malts, earthy, citrus, and lighter caramel. Alcohol content well hidden. Lacing left on the glass. More on the hoppy side vs. a balanced IIPA. If I had to choose, I would list this under and IPA, although if a Black IPA were a style, this would fit that.
