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.

Beer pours a nice dark brown, ruby color. Much lighter than I was expecting for a "black" ale. Not much head.

Beer smells piney and citrusy.

Beer tastes very piney on the initial sip, before giving way to a nice, nutty taste. Also, slightly smokey as well.

Beer is a bit more carbonated than I would have liked.

Overall solid black ale.
