look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a "Maudite" tulip.
A - Dark,opaque black with a hint of ruby around the edges. Big tan head with good lacing.
S - Bitter chocolate, licorice, touch of dark fruit.
T - Bitterness its you first, a little hot booziness mellows to bitter chocolate, a touch of licorice, a little dark fruit, then a dry hoppy finish.
M - Medium High carbonation. A little too much for this style. Wanted it to be a bit creamier.
D - Medium Low. Bitterness and alcohol taste doesn't make this go down real easy.
This beer is all over the place for me. Flavors aren't really meshing and the bitterness is over the top for me at least. Not a bad beer, but not one I will be going back to any time soon.

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.
