Pour in tulip glass. Rich mahogany color, sad thin, pale-white head. Great aroma of big wet hops as well as oak and vanilla, some fruit like cherry. Good sweet caramel malt combines with bitterness. Has a measure of peppery in there too. Enjoyed the taste of this Black IPA over Flying Monkey’s because of the subtle notes and non-caffeine taste. Finishes very dry and quite bitter. wolfenstein62 (48) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2009
I wished I liked Hoppie Ales more than I do because this appears to be a special ale. Love the color because it is so unlike a normal IPA. Flavors is everything you would expect plus a mid palate maltiness that ends just a bit too quick. Enjoyed none the less Bennywisest (43) - - JUN 30, 2012

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass. The aroma and taste are a nice balance of piney hops and roasted malts. The abv is not noticable in the taste and the beer goes down smooth and easy. Another solid offering from the folks at Victory.

Distinctive malt characteristic. Nice rich body. There isn’t as much hop characteristics as I would have liked or expected. Overall a very enjoyable beer 8balls (31) - Winston-Salem, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Tasty offering from Victory. While the packaging doesn’t describe exactly what type of ale this is, it tastes like a robust black IPA to me. It’s got a real nice, lingering flavor that rests comfortably on my palate. Smells great, looks great, tastes great. It’s got a surprisingly high ABV at 8.7%. This one can be sneaky because it’s smooth, so treat it with respect. Prost!
