I drank a lot of stout's in my life, but I have not sampled a huge variety of Imperial Stouts, but this is wonderful.
Poured a deep chocolate that I can't even see through holding my eye right up to the glass which is just in front of a light bulb. Creamy chocolatey 1.5 finger head which remains around the rim and small marble size bubbles on top.
Smells of sweet and dark chocolate, mocha, roasted malt, coffee, and alcohol. I have a small cold so I cannot get the nuances.
Tastes of chocolate, malt, and coffee with a even bittery hop finish.
Very nice beginning bubbly hit with a bitter aftertaste that lasted for at least 2 minutes. Alcohol so well hidden I cannot pick it up anywhere but, in the smell. This takes the cake for me! I am so happy I picked up a sixer on my trip to Chicago (Binny's) over the Holidays! My wife even picked it out and surprised me!

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.
