We pour a syrupy brew of the deepest brown color, with the half finger head only a few shades lighter. The head dissipates quickly, but leaves a fair bit of creamy lacing. The primary component of the aroma is hops, which masks the subtle hints of burnt coffee and suggestions of roasted malts. The taste takes off with an immense, coiny hoppiness. The sip peaks with dark coffee and an apparent alcoholic warmth, quickly descending to carry those flavors into the aftertaste. The brew is highly carbonated and thickly full bodied, leaving the mouth a bit dry. The unexpectedly huge hop character and high abv make this a slower drinking brew.
Overall, the deep rich color of both the brew and the head make it an attractive prospect. The most surprising aspect of the beer is certainly the dominance of the hops, which pushes many other desirable flavors to the back.

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.
