Ebony/Opaque color, with a thick tannish brown head. Absolutely mesmerizing.
Am I at the Cheesecake Factory having dessert or is this a beer? Whoa, the aroma is of turtle cheesecake, caramel, swiss chocolate, maybe rocky road ice cream. I could sniff this beer for hours.
On the palate, a big rush of chocolate coats the palate and is very, very rich. Chocolate and caramel maltiness dominate, with just enough hop bitterness to tame. The viscous liquid is oh so creamy and thick.
The finish is true to the chocolatiness mentioned above but it fades into a distinct toffee, maybe butterscotchy caramel taste. All of this with suprisingly little heat from the higher alcohol content.
I find this beer to be most enjoyable slightly chilled and served in a traditional Belgian style goblet. When chilled, the dessert aromas I mentioned are more prominent, yet when consumed at room temperature the beer lacks these aromas and has a more roasty, espresso coffee aroma. Try it both ways.

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.
