I was always looking forward to trying this, given the obvious recommendation by most beer advocates. Away we go....
It poured with an opaque, almost black body and a sturdy and attractive dark, fluffy and consistent head. The nose is sensational for an imperial; malty at first, but accompanied by a grapefruit/citrus background. The mouthfeel is full and robust, asserting itself that this is a beer to be reckoned with. At first, it appears nutty/chocolatey. Then a wave of IPA flavors hit. But its not overwhelming, it is complimentary in the rudimentary essence of the word. The citrus and grapefruit flavors do such justice. The finish is almost like an IPA as well, with a bitterly dry puckering aspect. The grapefruit sits at the back of the palate for good. All this tying in nicely to the subtle chocolatey roastiness. Well done and world class my friend.

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.
