Poured from 12 oz bottle into a glass. Victory distribution finally has hit Las Vegas. Anxious to try this.

Appearance: finger of dark brown head, dissipates quickly, black, opaque. It's an imp stout....standard stuff

Smell: baker's chocolate, cocoa powder, bitter dark chocolate, little bit of hops (floral).

Taste: lot of roastiness, dark chocolate, black licorice, burnt espresso, huge amount of bitterness in the finish that lingers on the tongue and back of mouth. There is no creaminess or unusual flavors. The front and middle is fine but the finish is so overpoweringly bitter that it ruins the beer.

Mouthfeel: oddly thin for such a big 9.1% beer. Carbonation higher than usual for a stout.

Overall: sorry to say another disappointment from Victory. Not understanding the hype for this beer or the brewery. This is a fairly one note wonder with that note being a pungent, acrid taste that stays in your mouth violating it far too long.
