The head on this beer is thick… and dark. Very dark. But that’s a good sign for a stout. I like that we have been able to try some authentic Russian stouts on this journey. Not beers from Russia, just the style. A Russian stout is MUCH more powerful on the nose and the tongue, providing a much better experience for the person lifting his (or her) glass.

I have had some beers from Victory before, just not this one. But as dark as this beer sits in the glass, I am excited to try it. Plus, it smells amazing.

You are hit with flavor immediately, and as the beer climbs it’s way back your palate, the flavors just begin to explode in your mouth. Then, out of nowhere, is a little sweetness to settle with a dry, bitter aftertaste. It’s like a joy ride through my mouth. And that aftertaste sticks around… for a LONG time. Which is completely fine with me, as this beer has a huge ABV.

This is a great beer; well done Victory. To read that a brewmaster likes to experiment, and be creative with his beers… well, you can experiment on me anytime. I love trying new beers. And this one is no exception. (I wonder what this would taste like on draft?)

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.
