look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

pours with a deep amber with some ruby hightlights. A big head is present but it fades quickly to a thin small layer that is substained.
Medium carbonation.
The aroma is that of hops, floral and spiceiness
A hint of malt can be sensed, too.
The taste is very hoppy. Pine resin, spice can be sensed. Maltiness comes through at the end. Bitterness too. I taste a bit of cloying.
This beer drinks and feels very smooth with a nice mouthfeel.

4.53/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Poured into a tulip glass from a 12oz. bottle as pictured.

A: Dark reddish amber color. Nice light tan head with light to moderate lacing.

S: Nice piney hop scent with hints of citrus and malt.

T&M: Fresh, crisp hops are upfront with a nice mildly sweet matly backbone that follows. Moderate piney hops, citrus and a nice taste that I can't identify hits the back of the tongue. It is a sweet/mildly bitter hop/malt mix. Medium bodied, slightly grainy rough feel with a very dry finish.

What a fantastic brew! This is like a smooth IPA and is very tasty. I got this in a beer of the month pack and will definitely be purchasing 6-packs in the future.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a standard pint glass. A glass of cold water on the side to sip from periodically.

Appearance: As served the beer is dark rich reddish brown color. The 1/4” thick creamy, long-lasting, light tan head leaves layer of foam on the surface. Sipping leaves some nice foamy lacing.

Smell: The aroma seems much the same as when I had this on tap. It is complex and balanced with rich roasted malts and lots of spicy/citric hops. There are hints of grapefruit rind, some spiciness and pine, all mixed in with some dark bread, dark chocolate and traces of dark caramel

Taste: As the nose predicts there is the rich sweet dark chocolate and caramel along with a rich dark bread flavor. From the hops there’s citrus and spice with bits of pine and pepper. But overall it seems to be the hops taking the lead.

Mouthfeel: The mouth feel is definitely medium bodied and smooth and creamy from the finely bubbled moderate carbonation. The finish moderately long and generally begins while the hops are dominant and then just tapers off into dry hop bitterness.

Drinkability: At this ABV Yakima Glory a one a night beer for me , but it’s a nicely complex beer that I’ve enjoyed sipping. I won’t hesitate to treat myself to this one again. My over all impression is that this is a well made beer that works quite well as a cask offering. For me much of the difference between this one on cask and the bottled or tap versions lies basically in the mouth feel of the beer. Even though I thought the tap version to be smooth and creamy, this one tops it for creamy smoothness.

Victory Yakima Glory Ale is a highly sparkling, dark brownish red ale with a thick, creamy, light brown head that has outstanding retention and lacing It has a hoppy, roasty aroma with notes of citrus peel, caramel and coffee. It's medium bodied, smooth and creamy with a very dry finish. It tastes dry and well bittered with citrus peel and pine resin. There's a healthy dose of dark roast. The malt is sturdy and has a toffee-like quality. All of the flavors are in balance and they work well together. Great job, Victory. This beer is right up my alley.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass

Apperance - Dark reddish brown in color. Slight head, good lacing.

Smell - Roasted Barley, raisins, citrusy hops.

Taste - Quite hoppy but well balanced. The dark malts really make this a well rounded beer, more 3 dimesional than a typical IPA.

Mouthfeel- Slightly slick, softly carbonated

Overall - A nice blend of Hoppy and roasted grains, slightly sweet, hides the 8.7% ABV quite well.

Best By Oct 24 2013

A: Beautiful deep amber with shades of brown. A light brown, frothy, creamy head that leaves great lacing and retention. Head hangs around for a while. Very inviting.

S: Big aromas of fresh, resiny hops and sweet roasted malt. There's hints of delicious booze, brown sugar, molasses, and other roasted characteristics found in most Stouts and Porters.

T: Great roasted flavors hit the palate first, followed by hops, and finished with more robust, almost smoky qualities. In the middle of each sip the hops are quite juicy. They linger through the finish with the strength of the malt coming through as oak, smoke, char, and even dark chocolate. As the beer warms, the hops come through more, bringing fruity and piney flavors. But the malt always shows itself to remind you what kind of beer this is.

M: Massive amounts of flavor from the roasted malts and plenty of delicious hop oils to balance out the sweetness. Fairly bitter and dry finish but very smooth throughout. Carbonation is nearly spot on. The body is fantastic and fits the beer very well.

O: I think this truly stays to the style of ABA/Black IPA as originally intended. Most beers of this style end up being IPA's that have some roasted malt thrown in. Not this one. The hops complement the malt flavors but not overpower or take center stage, which I really enjoy. This is top quality stuff and met my high expectations as I have been waiting to drink this beer for nearly a year after just missing last years release. With the high ABV, you also feel pretty good at the end of a 12oz. bottle. Well done, Victory!

I've had this one on tap twice now at both the Big Pour in the Burgh and at Piper's Pub both excellent adventures in beerdom. Appears a deep rustic caramel amber not quite a black IPA but deep crimson red for sure, a nice thicket of head forms with khaki tan pigments cookin'. Head is dwindling nicely with speckled sporadic lacing. Aromatics offer up a minty, citrus, and piney, earthy mix of hops absolutely amazing with the dark malts. This really blends well some cocoa and dark chocolate edges with those hops and a touch of hidden alcohol come through. Flavors bring pure hoppiness about on the palate, strong lingering bitterness almost a perfume like herbal quality, strong astringent black tea, citrus mint and pine tip accented hops. Mild cocoa, and watered down astringent coffee accents actually blend nicely with an air of brown sugar added to the malt combination. Mouthfeel is slightly oily with ample carbonation medium to bigger bodied a touch of heat from the well hidden alcohol. Drinkability I love this brew, I can't help but appreciate the effort to do something more extreme from their pretty traditional lineup, I dug the first year of the Hop Wallop after that the beer's initial premise has been lost this is what Victory needed to keep us hopheads praising.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Dark mahogany in color and a 3/4 inch tan colored head that holds on for quite awhile leaving a thick lacing behind all the way to the bottom of the glass. Scents are quite robust with a Rye ale characteristic big on the tip along with aroma's of brown sugar malts and a pine forest after a summer rain. Sweetness & earthiness rolled into one.
The brew's flavor has quite a levels of complexities to it. A molasses & perhaps cardamon flavor steps up first with some toasted bread right behind it. Very piney hops quickly follow it pushing the OOMPH factor up a bit more. It's almost along the lines of an IPA but there's a dark fruit thing instead of grapefruit and pine that those usually carry. I can't quite put my finger on what I am tasting but it is tasting very interesting and quite good. The finish then throws in another curveball in the taste with a ginger hotness chocolate notes and rye. The mouthfeel is full yet bubbly and has quite a chewiness to it.

3x 12oz into glass 1L Lowenbrau seidel. Hell yeah!

A- Moderate caramel brown with a humongous off-white head. Took me 10 minutes to pour all three bottles.

S- Hops! Smells like simcoe. Piny, a bit fruity, and an octane-like quality.

T- Hoppy as all hell. Very good, new-growth pine hops. Also a lot more citrus hops than the nose alluded to. Sweet, bold malt comes through to add a pretty good depth to this beer. A cross between Hop Hod Rye and Double Simcoe. Very tasty.

M- Good carbonation, right malts go toe-to-toe with the hops, pretty interesting. Creamy... delightfully so.

D- ABV in mind.. pretty damn high. Drank 1L with ease. Would buy again. One of my new favorite Victory beers.

Received in a straight pint glass, a very dark copper-coloured pint with a firm head that doesn't really go away. Both malt and hops in the nose, piney, grassy, citrus, lots of caramel and chocolate. The taste is somewhat muted after the big blast of powerful aroma. Let's just call it subtle and dignified. Bot malt and hops at the friend and a superbly dry, bitter finish with an aftertaste that lingers and lingers. Good, if slightly oily mouthfeel. Very nice indeed.

4.5/5  rDev +13.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - This is a light brown in color with some nice copper tones and a big head that comes up quick. It showed great retention and left tons of lacing on the inside of my glass.

Smell - The hop aroma is tight yet opens up nicely. I'd call them fruity but add that they show a lot of depth and aren't sweet if that makes any sense. There is some nice floral notes as well that are huge and actually form the backbone to the hop bouquet.

The malts are just as big as the hops. There's almost a winey port aroma to the malts but really they are filled with toffee galore. It's not the kind of toffee you get in a Heath bar but more like what you'd make on your stove top. I find some smaller notes of chocolate here as well but this has a nice, robust, malt structure that actually is probably the closest thing I've ever tasted to Arrogant Bastard.

Taste - The aromas meld nicely together at the taste. This is half hops and half malts and I mean split exactly down the middle. If I had to pick one I'd say the malt is just a shade stronger. It is so rich and heavy.

Mouthfeel - This is full-bodied with little bitterness and a flat yet pleasing texture that again reminds me of Arrogant Bastard.

Drinkability - This is a world-class beer that deserves the highest of accolades. It must be incredibly difficult to pull off this flavor combination but Victory did a tremendous job.

Served in a pint glass.

A: Deep brown with slight reddish tones. I get just enough light through it to determine that it's cloudy. Nice thick 2-finger head.

S: I get lots of caramel and toffee, as well as floral hops.

T: Caramel and toffee flavors up front, followed by nice hop bitterness, and finishing off with deep grapefruit and piney hops.

M: Very smooth early on, then hop astringency at the end.

D: Despite the high ABV, I could drink this all day.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a clear dark reddish brown with two fingers of off white head.

Smell: A lot of lighty citrusy and floral hops along with a fair amount of malt.

Taste: Bitter hops upfront with a nice malty finish. I really liked the hop's flavor in this beer, but it is a little short lived if I am looking for something to complain about.

Mouthfeel: Alcohol is fairly obvious making the beer fairly warm. The beer has a medium body. A very smooth finish as well.

Drinkablity: Dangerously high for a beer with an abv of 8.7%.

A very tasty and interesting beer, haven't had anything quite like it before. Although when it gets warm the alcohol flavor begins to overpower everything else, when drank cold to cool the alcohol is not nearly as obvious.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This one starts off with a bang. The aggressive pour into my SA Perfect Pint yielded a rich mahogany brown with brilliant red highlights. Clarity was very good, and the foamy head was alive and breathing.

The aroma is a hodgepodge of styles all blended into a bold interesting package. The malt profile is very robust and complex, sporting flavors of toasty biscuits, cocoa, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. The earthy hop profile is fleeting, but always present. More diacetyl, ripened fruit (cherries mostly), and a hint of alcohol emerge as it warms. What a lovely nose!

The alcohol announces itself in the flavor, but only adds a slight warming touch. It tastes nice and roasty from beginning to end, the resiny hop character is more pronounced in the finish. The balance is fantastic amongst sweet, roasted, and bitter.

The feel is nice and creamy with just enough carbonation to lighten it up and add crispness. The body is fantastic, it fills the mouth and slides down wonderfully without being too thick.

This beer delivers in every way, a victory for Victory.

This is one my favorite beers from Victory. Unfortunately its only available fall-winter. I usually get my growlers filled after a pint or two at the Brewery.

One of the best dark IPAs around. Great flavors, color, and ABV.

Can't wait until November when it comes back.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark amber hue with an off-white 2-finger head that quickly dissipates down the side of the glass leaving a great trail and ending in a solid persistent lace..

S: Sharp hop aroma with a sweet malty background.

T: Great piney hop and sweet malt mix. There is a nice alcoholic bite and finishes on the bitter side of dry.

M: Medium-heavy body and medium carbonation.

O: Love this beer – super hoppy but balanced well by the malt - and enough alcohol to make it interesting.

T- Earthy, hops, a little sugar, its hard to pick out what hops, but there are few
M- probably the most deceptivly tasting beer I have had, it looks like a stout, but finishes and has very simular characteristics of An IPA/DIPA
D- I dig this alot, but the high abv make it to high for a session beer , but def if you wanna get tipsy.. have a few of these

I hope Victory decides to make it again, it has great marketing value in my opinion

"Enjoy by: Nov 16 2010" I don't think I'll wait that long, thanks... Into the classic American shaker...

A - Mahogany body, with ample tan head. Some lace sticking and very nice retention. May not win any beauty pageants, but it were the girl next store, I doubt any guy would complain...

S - Malt supplies a nice roasted and smokey aroma with slightly sweeter coffee notes, dry and just simple enough to give the hops lots of room to shine. And they do, showing spicy, rum-like notes balanced out with a big juicy orange quality. More than solid.

T - Semi-sweet chocolate malt and citrus at the entry, with building smokiness quickly joining the palate. The citrus turns juicy and climaxes at the midpalate. A rum-like bite starts right before the swallow, and lasts long after the finish, combining with the hops to create an almost to-assertive finish.

M - Remember the last time you had a good 8-9% ABV beer American Ale? That's what the mouthfeel and body are like.

D - The only complaint I could see people having about this beer would be the big burn (*whine, this beer isn't "smooth..."*) in the finish. I love the hugeness of this beer, and applaud the spicy, rum-like character in this big American-style beast. At a pretty reasonable price for a sixer, sounds like a great way for me to drink away my sorrows after watching my Illini crush my hopes at a special season these last two games... D*mnit...

This was an interesting one I have to admit. I was not sure how it was going to go when I started out but I was more then pleasantly surprised with the final result. Served chilled and poured into a bottle, this one was consumed on 02/13/2010.
 
The pour was much darker then I thought it was going to be. Nice and even brown color with a good clarity to it. A nice rich looking head of light tan rose up from the sides of the glass and reached a height of around two fingers before settling back down with a smooth and even lacing and a nice consistency hugging the glass. Aroma is a good bit hoppier up front then I thought it was going to be as well. This one just seemed to be full of surprises. Rich caramel and earthy grains lie underneath a bouquet of pine like hops. Quite light and very complex. I was extremely open to this one. First sip is smooth, creamy malts that wash across the tongue. Great complexity here now as well. Rich brown ale flavor, creamy, hints of earthy tones and a rich, subtly dry hop presence that seems to build and build. Last sips seem to be equally as well versed in sweet caramel notes as they are in dry, piney hops. Super session able and a pleasure to drink.
 
Overall an outstanding ale I would have no issue at all with trying again any day. Simply stunning.

Victory Brewing Yakima Twilight Ale is gorgeous, dark, and earthy to the extreme.

It poured deep dark copper, like an old dirty penny, with a massive creamy dark tan head. It left huge rings of lace from the top of the glass down. An absolutely perfect-looking strong ale. The smell was subtle pine needles and the flavor was sweet and caramel-like up front, followed by a huge hit of pine, grass, and earth. The feel is thick and bready, with a good amount of bitterness with a nice warmth--it was a pleasure to drink. It did not have the flat feel of many other strong ales.

Yakima Twilight is a dark wood and leather ale with a huge amount of earth. It's a deep and wonderful experience.

A really pretty beer- clear dark reddish brown with a huge persistent dense off white head. Smell is citrusy hops. Lemons. Taste is again is mostly citrus hops. Nice caramelly malt. Some bitterness but nicely balanced overall. I like that it's just a bit on the hoppy side. Great full bodied creamy mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Another great beer from Victory.

Pint on tap at Capones.

Poured a darker brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of pine, earhty, roasty, floral, toasted malts, and some citrus. Tastes of pine, roasted malts, earthy, citrus, and lighter caramel. Alcohol content well hidden. Lacing left on the glass. More on the hoppy side vs. a balanced IIPA. If I had to choose, I would list this under and IPA, although if a Black IPA were a style, this would fit that.

On cask and regular tap both tried at the brewpub. One of the rare beers where when side by side I strongly preferred the regular over cask. Once warmed from regular pour, flavors were great.

A: Dark mahogany- this is an IPA of any sort? Caramel colored body that is pretty vacant of bubbles and thin but creamy head.

S: Citrus and sweet. As it warmed, the bready flavors come out- something of a good hearty rye toasted IPA. Toasty and inviting.

T: Malty sweet finishing with a hop oil residue on the cheeks and tongue. Citrus bitterness that is supremely balanced with woody flavors and hop juice. Balanced as balanced can be. I would not have blindly recognized it as a DIPA, credit the brewer there.

M: Creamy texture, lightly carbonated and not wet. Oily resins are just enough to coat the tongue but not one sided. Virtually no heat whatsoever.

D: This is more of an IPA in flavor to me, its just not an over the top hop kick in the face. I detect zero, I mean zero, alcohol fumes in the taste, smell, or mouthfeel. I had several and this could be dangerous but enjoyable.

This should replace (yes, blasphemy to some) should replace the Wallop as their seasonal. Superb beer.
