Poured into a Duvel tulip. Enjoy by Jan 03 11.

A-Black as hell, 2 1/2" incredible light brown cappucino froth head. Tons of lacing. This beer looks fantastic.
S-Roasted malt aroma is so subtle it's barely there.
T-Unexpectedly smooth, unexpectedly flavorless. Alcohol flavor very present, above the coffee/chocolate type malts. I let this warm to room temp: same result.
M-This beer is totally flat. No carbonation. Thin mouthfeel with a sweetish, cloying, light syrup alcohol finish. Yet the head was so tremendous! Let it sit for 1/2 hour after I took it outta the fridge, too....A Russian Imperial Stout should not be watery like this....
D-Well, I drank it, cos I'm tough, but brother, the last inch was a chore...

CRUX: DISAPPOINTING. What a let down, to say the least. Nothing Russian Imperial about this beer; I've had milk stouts with more oomph! Damn. Victory is a great brewery, so there is something wrong here. It pains me to slam one of their beers, so i'll have to resample in the near future...

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.
