Yowzahs! This is good. Balanced and strong Imperial Stout. Nice, dark look with light caramel head. Could have used some more foam there but that's me. Smell is solid, def picking up the floral notes of the hops. Tastes great; burnt malt with a hoppy back note. Mouthfeel: wish it was a tad bit smoother, not bad, but the alcohol takes over the tiniest bit. Overall, really good stuff here

This is one of my favorite beers, but I have not bought a single one since they went from a six pack to a four pack out of principle.

Great color and feel. A hoppy Imperial Stout. Unlike some other Victory higher gravity brews, you know the alcohol is there with this one.

Appearance: Dark, almost black opaque color. Nice two finger head.
Smell: I'm getting some nice milk chocolate, dark fruit, coffee and some flowery notes, along with some dark roasted malty aromas. I'm also getting a bit of alcohol in the nose.
Taste: The taste is very similar to the nose, with some chocolate, coffee and fruity flavors - the hops are pretty forward in this one. There is a bit of alcohol on the back end as well, but not overpowering, pretty subtle.
Mouthfeel: I thought the mouthfeel on this one was a bit thin, and somewhat dry on the finish.
Overall: This is a very good brew, pretty hoppy for an impy stout, but definitely not in a bad way. I really like the hoppiness in that it doesn't overcome the roasty stout flavors, but complements them very well.

Great tasting Russian Imperial, and you cant beat the bang for your buck!
