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!

Bottle @ beerbistro, Toronto. Not black, but brown! Little nose, some nuts and caramel, no head. Quite flat taste. Despite the high ABV unremarkable. Caramel, dry, bitter. Ok.

Aroma. One of the best beer aroma’s I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Rich malt and fruity hop notes. taste is similar, with a larger dark malt presence and sweet fruity hops. Wonderful beer! Favorite so far by Victory!

From a bottle. Pours clear brown with thin tan head. Roasted nuts caramel and raisins in the nose. Sweet caramel maltiness balanced with pine resin and a bitter finish... Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Tony’s Place in Ivyland. Color is a deep rich red / brown. Head is not strong. Smells of hops hit your nose. Maybe Crystal hops? I would say this beer is more hop heavy than malt. Alcohol is well hidden under hop kick.

Sip this one slowly or you could miss all of the notes this beer has to offer. A lot of character and very satisfying. My new favorite beer. I probably would have never tried it either if I hadn’t lived previously.

shonobiwan (211) - Sound Beach, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a cola color with a hint of dark burgundy with decent off white head and minimal lacing. Though this is suppose to be a Black IPA aroma was more like a dark ale with dark fruit overtones and with a hint of hops. The taste was the same. Interesting beer, definitely worth revisiting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VALIS (210) - 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.

From bottle. Dark amber/brown pour with nice tan head. Not very clear but could be chill haze. Nice hop aroma. Good flavor and mouthfeel. A little lingering bitterness, but good balance between malts/hops overall.

Nimrod979 (206) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Pours a dark reddish-brown with a big frothy tan head. Overwhelming scent of pine and hops. Taste is hops, hops, hops & HOPS. There is some mild maltiness that balances out the long, bitter finish but this beer is very intense and overwhelming. I’m not too sure about this beer. Perhaps just not in the mood for this style, Sadly this is the only one i have.

WOW! This pours out an amazing dark brown with great foam. It is like drinking a stronger version of hopdevil with a much maltier taste to it. Amazing beer.
