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.

3.63/5  rDev -10.8%

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.

3.9/5  rDev -4.2%

Pour: Dark, black with a nice tan head which clings to the glass on the way down
Smell: Light smell of roasted malt, coffee and faint hops
Taste: Earthy taste, roasted malt and just the right amount of hops. Finishes burnt malt taste along with coffee and chocolate flavors.
A good stout. Would recommend
