A - Poured out a dark brown and once in the glass appeared pitch black except on the edge when held up to the light. Made a one finger chocolaty thick head with really tiny bubbles that died off relatively fast. Lacing is average on this one.
S - On the nose I get creamy bitter chocolate right away, some black licorice and a bit of hops in the back end. I almost feel like I'm sniffing a dark creamy chocolate bar.
T - I get the bitterness from the hops right away with the nice chocolate malt, coffee, toffee, cream; in the back this leaves a lingering after taste that has an astringent flavor which I believe is from the hop variety used.
M - This brew i full bodied with a soft pillowy feel not to mention a bitter bite from the hops and a prickle on your tongue from the carbonation. Wow a lot going on here in the mouth, Amazing!
O - A really nice sipping RIS that is to be desired at the end of a cold night. If you like RIS you need to at least try a bottle of this, with its uniquely great qualities. I will definitely be cellaring some of these to see if that astringent flavor fades, will update wit an aged version in the future. Cheers!

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.
