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!

Victory is right! this is a total winner. 40 bucks a case for a well-backed, glass lacing, brown orange, hop slam full of citrus and bright, bitter beautiful goodness with a bit of pineyness to boot?!? almost 9%? this is serious bang for your buck. amazing. 90min, lookout. i love you, but lookout for your cheaper, more ambitious and delicious cousin to the northwest.

A= pours into glass a dark ruby red, really dark with thick head that lasts a good while, leaving behind solid lacing. Aroma and Taste= sweet malts with some citrus pine hops in the background. Body= very thick without being too overpowering. Another outstanding winner from the great Victory Brewing. They never fail to please. Be careful, because at 8.7% ABV, you do not want to have more than a few

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.

What can I say? This is an awesome beer. I won’t go into all the details but if you like a big bold beer, then you need to try this one. I was expecting the worse in the way of sweetness but was really surprised as to how well balanced this beer is. If you like Stone’s Arrogant Bastard, you will love this one even more since the flavor notes are so much more powerful. Warning though, this beer is not for those who love the lighter German beers or the national brands like Coors or Bud. This is what you call a true "Winter Warmer". This is a very potent brew but the abv is very well diguised.
