Poured into a deschutes tulipey/snifterey sorta glass. This beer is very dark. When held up to light I, like Sgt. Schultz, see nothing. At the very edge of my glass I can see rising carbonation. The rad is tan, almost brown and stands a half inch tall. The aroma is sweet and with bits of toast smell as I open the bottle. My nose was truly fooled into believing it was breakfast and my toast was ready. I get more of a chocolate smell after the beer is in the glass though. In the taste I first get a quick punch of bitterness right in the front of the tongue, followed by a smooth bittersweet chocolate. I also get soem roasted malts. The initial pop on the tongue confuses me, not sure if I like that or not. As the beer leaves the tongue I am left with a lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick, but has enough carbonation to prevent it from being too heavy.

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.
