I've wanted this beer for awhile now, and I was a little bummed out when I actually got the chance to try it. Still a good stout, but I've had better and regularly have access to better stouts. Oh well!
Appearance: Pours really dark, like motor-oil, a slight caramel colored head is left on the top of the beer, but it doesn't last for very long and there is almost no lacing left behind
Smell: Maybe I just love smelling beers, but this beer smells great! You can tell its going to have strong caramel and chocolate tones when you're sniffing the bottle
Taste: Again, this was the let down for me, despite the amazing smell of the beer the actual taste is kind of boring? Don't get me wrong you get the caramel and chocolate but its lacking, like the flavor went flat
Mouthfeel: Like most stouts the amount of carbonation was low, not very viscous,
Drinkability: Good, though really for the money you'd drop on this beer you'd be better off just tracking down something better, but if this was your choice at a liquor store, then yeah pick-up a six pack of it, its head and tails above a Guinness

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.
