Served in my favorite snifter glass.
Appearance: Pitch black like the darkest brown you will see, somewhat thin on the pour with a nice natural tan head rising to about 1/2" off the body.
Smell: Light molasses and rich coffee, smells yum.
Taste: Bitter coffee, almost espresso like but taken to another level. Malty to the point that it feels like a meal and hops...almost like an american black ale meets your imperial.
Mouth: This is where I find where this beer excels at...a little dry but who cares the coffee fusion compliments its medium to heavy carbonation.
Overall: Very good brew, to not buy it is pretty much a sin. Complexity and strength what more could you ask for? Bought this because of the very good experiences I have had with Victory Brewing and honestly just added another one....Salud!

What a beer!
Great looking and tasting dark beer.
A lot of Victory's are fantastic and there are, literally, 1000's upon 1000's of reviews on each one so my review and all others are sort of lost but I'd like my 2 cents on record for what I deem the best of the lot. Being from Philly, there are a lot of Victory's everywhere. The best place is the Victory Beer Garden down where the Spectrum used to be. It is an amazing place with what seem to be, dozens of the big "V", tap handles along an enormous bar.
I've had this beer there too.
It has a kick to it and has a large, magnificent coffe-ish colored head.
When I pour from the bottle I use a Duval Tulip glass and the head fills the upper end of the 22 oz glass. Quite impressive.
I'm going out and get another one right now.
