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!

I passed my second Microsoft IT test for a certification this morning! It feels good to be done with all that reading, and now I am ready to celebrate with a six pack from Victory. The pour was amazing. The head reached the top of my Sam Smith pint glass after half of the bottle. The aroma was sweet figs and evergreen hops. The Yakima is a perfect late summer hop-harvest style beer. The fresh hops taste grassy and have a nice malt backbone to balance the strong bitterness. The finish has peach and pecan notes. The 8.7% is warming but not overwhelming. This might be the perfect late summer beer.

Very nice, very flavorful. Sweet and creamy mouthfeel. Fairly well balanced, a hint of nice raw flavor and a generally likeable beer

Bottled. Aroma hits you in the face with the floral hops. Poured a dark amber color. Taste of big floral hops, little roasted flavor, then some citrus. good brew

Thisis hard to classify. The flavor is complex. It has hoppy IPA characteristics but also it has some dark roasted malt flavor. There is a slight bit of bit chocolate. It is very interesting.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Pours a rich and velvetty deep maghoany color withan equally tall dense head. Aroma is of rich malts with a hoppy sort of muddle hop bouquet. Taste is rich dark with roasted malts. Not overly roasted but adding a nice sutle accent. Hops seem mudle with no particular taste coming through. You can taste though a brightness and freshness around the edges. Smooth and easy drinking with a bitter finish. One should also note a nice alcohol warming throughout the session. A good beer but potent. j

Pours rich deep brown with a skinny head. Aroma of big malt and big herbal hops. Palate is a nice balance of sweet and bitter. Quite a tasty brew........,.....................................

Dark caramel color with thick head. Unique malty hop taste, I can’t think of a comparable brew. Not as roasted as other Black IPAs.

pours a nice redish brown with a big tan head. This may be one of the worst beers I have ever had. The bitterness over whelms everything. This beer starts off sweet then goes immediately to bitterness. There are bitter hops, dark fruit flavors and bitter citrus flavor, YUCK!!

VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Very pretty dark red with lots of off-white bubbles. Dominant caramel on the nose with a little barbecue spice and plenty of malt. Nice balance between smooth and bitter. I thought I didn’t like Black IPAs but this changed my mind.
