I traded to SonofaLime to get this bottle, thanks a bunch! 12 oz bottle that he waxed poured into my CCB snifter. I do not see a bottling date, but I traded for this beer December of 2011.
Appearance: Very dark black with no colors on the edge and the thinnest whisp of head.
Smell: Dark dried fruit, licorice, charcoal, oats(?). Overall, this is an intense smelling beer.
Taste: More char, some semisweet chocolate, a touch of metallic. I still taste dried fruit and strongly roasted malts. I did not try this one fresh, so I do get some herbal earthy hops but they blend well with the roasted malts.
Mouthfeel: The body is medium to thick, and the carbonation is medium. The finish is long and flavorful with flavors all over my mouth.
Overall: I like this beer. I am curious what it may have tasted like while fresh.

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.
