A-Pours out an opaque,jet black body supporting a full inch of lasting,mocha foam that left gorgeous sheets of clingy lacing in it's wake.
S-Initially,lots of sweet chocolate that gave way to strong French roast coffee,burnt sugars and some slight dark fruit flavors(plum,raisin).
T-Tastes of dark chocolate,espresso beans,a slight hop bitterness to go along with slightly charred toast and some fruity alcohol notes.Finish is amazingly strong espresso flavors for a beer not actually brewed with coffee.
M-Great coffee and dark chocolate flavors with a small dose of citric hop bitterness.Almost reminiscent of an Espresso Romano.Maybe a tad thin would be my only knock.Really nice balance and drinkability though.
O-Real,real nice stout that I'm sorry I waited this long to try.

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.
