Dark, deep ruby color. Good sized foamy head, decent lacing.

Smells rich and malty, with some floral notes.

Quite hoppy but it's very pleasant. Some bright herb flavors and bittering notes that aren't too overpowering. Pretty sweet finish.

Good body and carbonation. Nice hoppy bite to it, but is still pretty drinkable.

This is quite nice. Victory did well with this one, not surprisingly.

Poured a dark, yet clear, brown/mahogany color from a 12 oz bottle, with ABV and 'best-by' date clearly marked on the label.
One finger off-white to mocha colored head that dissipated fairly quickly.
Aroma is a see-saw between rich roasted malt notes and floral hop notes. Nothing too overwhelming, just pleasant aromas coming through.
The aroma definitely leads you into the taste. Upfront there is just a hint of hop bitterness which then gets usurped by the roasted malt. Towards the finish, the malt and hops battle to a truce with both flavors subsiding to a nice pleasant aftertaste. There is a very good balance between the hops and malts.
Not a lot of lacing around the insides of the glass.
Good drinkability and mouthfeel (although at times it feels slightly thin).
Overall this is a very good interpretation of a black ale. Definitely worth a try and comes recommended.

Nice Black Ale..This one is more on the malty than hoppy side but still fairly balanced. Pours a translucent mahogany color, mostly reddish when held to a light. Light tan head, good size and slow fading good retention Significant bands of lace around the glass.

Nose is a bit weak, mostly roasted malts with a little floral thing going on.

Taste is fairly solid. Mostly roasted malt with a significant bitter hops finish. The overall balance is toward the malty side but the hops are fairly pronounced as well.

Mouthfeel is rich but with a crisp hops "bite" at the end. A nice slow sipper that is not too sweet or malty.
