I was reunited with this beer on NYE straight outta the bottle. Impressive hop aroma blasting right out of the bottle. Hop flavor was just as nice. A big beer that's very smooth, drinkable, and dangerous. With an expiration date of 2016, it's something you can confidently buy without old beer worries. Although the hops will fade, I can only imagine the smoothness in 4yrs. Make sure to enjoy a few nice and fresh to experience those hops. Cheers!

Reviewed from notes some time in December 11
Poured jet black into a snifter.
The smell of this one is hops, chocolate, big malts and a small coffeee.
Taste, Wow what a big awesome flavor you get big malts, chocolate, minor coffee and a really nice hop kick. Creamy mouthfeel with a slight bitter bite towards the end.
This is my favorite stout I love the big hops and the big flavor and I really love the small price tag!

Poured into a chilled, wide-mouthed, stemmed glass.
-Appearance 4.0: Yet another stout that nails the "looks" requirements. Jet black brew and a khaki-colored, half-inch head. Head quickly dissipated and...strangely, the residue was much lighter in color than the head!
-Smell 4.0: Nice. I smell hops and big, big barley flavors in this beer. I also notice hints of toasted barley and a slight burnt sugar bouquet. Promising.
-Taste 4.5: Oh, yeah. Toasted grains and alkaline hops up front, followed by a middle that is all barley and chocolate. Finish is long and filled with hops, caramel, malt, coffee and more chocolate and toasted grains. This Imperial Stout is a little on the dry side, which I find very refreshing and delicious.
-Mouthfeel 3.5: Great mouthfeel. Standard amount of carbonation and body along with a slight burning sensation that is the only hint that you're dealing with a 9%+ ABV brew.
-Overall 4.5: Excellent Imperial Stout. This stout is right up there with Old Rasputin and Your Black Heart in my book. Victory Brewing has a knack for nailing styles of beers and they have certainly hit this style squarely on the head. Highly recommended.
$12.00 for a six pack in Atlanta, GA.

best before September 8, 2016
A: Decent head and nice lacing.
S: Roasted malt, molasses, earthy hops.
T: Roasty, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, bitter herbal, slightly medicinal hops on the finish. Hops balance the roasted sweetness well, and the booze is well hidden.
M: Smooth, thick and creamy.
O: The hops are a nice change and make this a fairly interesting stout, but one is enough.
