look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Single finger head, not much lacing on a clear amber body. Aroma is Toasty, nutty and malty. Hazelnut in particular. Pine and coffee. Some roasted malt in the taste. Has a burnt element and decent piney hops. Medium body and moderate carbonation. It is a very complex beer and hardto appreciate all of its elements. May be a little too complex.

Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle from Cellarbrations Carlisle, poured into a Golden Monkey tulip. Thanks to bluebetty for grabbing this!

Pours a dark colour, a lot of red shows up against the light. Nice tan head of foam that laces very well and gets a bit of orange about it when agitated.

Chocolate, roasted and burnt chocolate comes through with the smell. Sensing a fair bit of hop-fade. Little bit of light pine late that comes in to show what was probably the brewers intention.

Taste is a mix of chocolate cookies, cocoa and some hop pine along with pine resin. Seems to work well, the chocolate first and the pine later.

Mouthfeel is full. Sweetness early and some bitterness late to even things out. Body is on the bigger side, adding some punch to this.

Even though it was sourced through the official channels, it doesn't seem to have the punch that was intended. Still, its a good go at the style. Plenty of chocolate in this, would still buy again. I do like how Victory seem to work with their beers, with this another beer that is just fun to drink.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark red, almost black, with little head. Smell of fruits with a hint of alcohol, almost like a barleywine. Tastes more like a barleywine than a dark IPA at first, but has a good hoppy aftertaste. Goes down pretty well for a high ABV beer, although it is more of a sipper than a session. Overall, a very fine beer.

A: a medium brown hue. head is rich and almost stout-like. retention is reasonable and the lacing is thick and sticky. also stout-like. wouldnt say it is a 'black' IPA, but certainly a dark brown IPA.

S: a blast of upfront, in your face, american grown hops. there is a very grainy, very toasty aspect in there as well, but this one is all about the hops.

T: the flavors on this thing are so much closer to a big AIPA than an black IPA. the hops are very much at the forefront of the palate and while yes, there is some roasted grain in there, it is not nearly as intense as your average black IPA.

M: moderate carbonation on a brew that is dancing on the line of medium and full bodied.

D: like i said in appearance, i wouldnt classify this as an american black as much as i would call it a very hoppy american brown ale. the hops are so refreshing and drinkable and with the roasted backdrop there is a really nice added dimension that gives this brew some depth. well done victory.

The fun is in the name with this one. I like this Vicotry product probably because its one of their highest ABVs. This sounds like a Japanese Kamakaze pilot beer.

I had this a few times but this particular review is out of a bottle. Nut brown in color. Hazelnut fragerance. A lot of head when poured.

A black ale but has hops and floral undertones in boquet. You can barely see through this beer when held to light. Not very bubbly. Bitter upon tasting with some chocolate taste.
