A - Rich dark coffee-brown with nice tan head that drops off gently but never disappears. Lace hangs in there nicely.
S - Starts out strong and appealing, but vanishes in mid-imbibe. Opens up with a comforting, solid smell though. This beer's weakest link, I'm afraid.
T - Mostly good from beginning to end, although there are moments when it seems to "go bland." Unsweetened chocolate and strong iced black coffee taste as well as some resiny hops rescue it.
M - Thick and creamy. Approaches whipped cream. Should I take a chance and say custard? Never went thin on this reviewer. Without a doubt, one of its two strongest qualities, the other being its Appearance.
O - Really 4.125. Drank this on an unseasonably cool June evening, half a world away from my loved one. It's a comfort beer, the ideal beverage for someone separated by business or other unwanted necessity from his/her partner. Yakima Glory is warm - evocative of winter, fireplaces, and a pleasantly light touch of loneliness and melancholy.

A: Dark brown, almost black with a creamy mocha head.
S: Pine, floral notes, kiwi and citrus in the nose.
T: Kiwi, grapefruit peel, citrus peel, citrus, lemon and grass, followed by roasted malt, espresso and coffee. Pretty much what you want out of the style, but perhaps not the best fruit flavor profile.
M: Full bodied and creamy smooth.
O: I'd prefer tangerine, mango, fresh orange, pineapple, papaya, passionfruit, tropical fruit, etc. mixed with the roasty flavors, but this is still a great beer. I'd definitely recommend it, if you like the black ale style.
