3.85/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - a dark red/brown pour with a nice amount of tan head, great lacing on this one

S - sweet malts, caramel, hoppy, citrus

T - toasted grains, caramel, hints of coffee/chocolate, bittering hops

M - very light on the palate, very flavorful, robust - yet smooth going down

O - this is probably one of my favorite victory brews, and is an overall good beer as far as i'm concerned! never really had anything like this before as far as taste/color goes.

Pours a deep ruby red color when held to the light with a half finger of head which recedes to skim but leaves rings of lace on the glass. The aroma is of caramel malt with a nice citrus smell. There is also an earthy nutiness to it. The taste follows suit with a caramel malt backbone up front then a nice citrus hop flavor along with a slight floral hop and a semi sweet dark fruit taste. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, but slightly thin. Overall this was a very good beer. Nice aroma and look to draw you in, with a great taste.

On-tap at Loxleys
Served to me in a chilled pint glass. Dark amber in color with a nice head with decent lacing. Smells pretty hop forward with a good bit of pine and mango. The palate is a bit more balanced with some sweet and smokey malts countering the hops. Good amount of bitterness in the finish. All in all this is a good representation of the style but is not a standout.

Growler from Crafty Draught GA

A: red Amber Brown, slight rim of froth
S: Citrus, Malt, Airy, Syrup
T: Malts, nutty, bitter, tobacco back end
M: medium, creamy
O: Bold and bitter, but lacking uniqueness. Good beer, not great for me. Would pass over for something a little less bitter.

Poured into a 9oz shaker

A: Clear body, dark brown with a reddish hue in the light. Head is the lightest shade of khaki brown and fades after a quick minute.

S: Smells chewy, sweet and nutty like an English brown ale.

T: Hop tastes of light pine, like a forest tied in with hints of citrus. Mild malts up front with a sweet nuttiness. Finishes with tart fruits (figs, prunes).

M: Want to chew on the beer like a fluffy pecan muffin. Leaves a tar, sticky feeling on the pallet after each sip. Very unique.

O: Reminds me of Terrapin's Hop Karma just not as intense, more straight forward hop/malt presence compared to a salad of flavors. Another example of Victory defining a beer style. This is a India Brown Ale in my book, not a Black Ale.
