I saw this on the shelf at Total Wine in Sarasota and had to try one of the few major releases from Victory that I hadn't yet.
A: Poured into a standard pint glass, small tight head that doesn't stick around. Really cool ruby/brownish color with great highlights.
S: Smell is pretty hop forward with some dry fruit maybe. A little sweetness in there too. I'm getting over a cold, so I may have to revisit that when I'm feeling 100%.
T: Sweet up front with a lot of malty, carmel notes and a pretty big hop-bitterness. However, the bitterness lingers a bit too long and too bitter for my liking. the longer I work on each sip, the less I want to take another due to the bitterness at the back of my mouth. If not for this, it would have scored much higher.
M: Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Judging on this alone, I'm surprised at the high alcohol content.
D: Besides the longstanding bitterness I was getting on the finish, I'd love this beer. However, the unpleasant aftertaste is probably going to make this a one-and-done selection for me. Victory is a killer brewery and everything they make is worth drinking. This one may just be a matter of my own personal preference, but I'll stick to Hopdevil if I'm looking for bitterness.

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.
