look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a completely opaque black with an initial fingers worth of chocolate milk colored head that dissipates quickly to a ring. Pretty nice lacing.

Smells of roasted malts, coffee, slight brown sugar, earthy hops and an underlying sweetness.

The coffee taste is more pronounced in the flavor than in the nose, and some dark fruits also come out, with some nice toasted malts and earthy, floral hops. There's a little malt sweetness in the front. Finishes with a nice hop bite that mixes with bitter bakers chocolate, with just a trace of alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel is pretty on point for the style. Rich and chewy, but not too heavy.

Overall, this is a super-reliable RIS, and, as one reviewer already mentioned, very reasonably priced. Looks good, smells good, and tastes even better.

4.34/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

A - Pitch black with a light brown head

A - Coffee, Sweet, and malty

T - The taste isn't as sweet as the smell but isn't bitter. Taste coffee, dark chocolate, with a hoppy finish. The alcohol isn't noticeable which is surprising.

M- medium mouthfeel compared to most stouts, but heavy for a non stout drinker. really smooth however.

Overall this is a good stout, not the best I've had from Victory, but they still prove to be a solid brewery.

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.
Heck...
I'm going out and get another one right now.
