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

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a normal pint glass.

A: Pours a deep reddish brown with 2 fingers of tan head with good retention. Leaves some lacing behind.

S: More sweet malts up front than expected. Citrus and hops follow. Not as hoppy as expected for a "Black IPA", but still very nice and well balanced.

T: Very nice. As hoppy as expected for an IPA with nice roasted notes. More bitter than citrus due to hops and roastyness.

M: Good, a nice stickiness from the hops and lingering bitterness that is not off-putting.

D: Very good. Not my favorite black IPA, but an excellent example, one I will revisit frequently.

Pours a reddish brown with an off white half finger head. Great head retention. The hue is abnormal, I enjoy it.

Heavy malts in the nose wich remind me of raisins. Some vanilla and chocolate can be faintly recognized. The overall impression is cookie like.

Roasty malts with flavors of burnt sugar and molasses meet sweet pear. The finish provides a pithy like bitterness. The taste can be divided into 3 distinct flavor sections: roasty malt, fruit sweetness, and fruit rind bitterness.

The feel is medium to full full with a sticky finish.

This is a very interesting beer which reminds me of a mix between a black IPA and a barleywine. I can't say I've had too many like it. Victory makes some good brews.

First had: on tap at Casey's, Newtown Square, PA

Assuming this is an alias for Yakima Twilight...

This beer pours a dark carameled amber color with a nice off-white head that laces well. Caramel aroma, fresh piney hops. Taste of toasted bread, honey and caramel, piney hops in generous quantities. Mellows out and gets a bit smoother as the temperature rises. Medium mouthfeel, and quite a good drink overall.
