look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
12 ounce bottle into 4 ounce tulip tasting glass
a: Coffee black, but thicker. Very thing band of foam that dissipates slowly
S: Dark fruits, toffee, cherries, molasses and milk chocolate, roasted nuts.
T: Toffee, coffee, licorice, vanilla and cream. It is quite an excellent combination. Not too boozy at all. I agree about the bitter finish and charred aftertaste.
M: Medium-bodied, smooth and creamy, low acidity, low carbonation
O: I've had a lot of stouts this winter and this one was very impressive. It seems smoother and creamier than most of the other ones I have tried.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

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.
