Appearance: Black body with a narrow foamy light tan head. Fades quickly to a ring.

Aroma: It has an oak barrel aroma and some strong caramel scents. The bottle doesn't say anything about barrel aging but it has that woody smell. There is a bit of pine in there too. All of this is very subtle, but if you take the time it will really come through.

Taste: Interesting. It has a very strong pine and mint quality, backed by this acrid smokey charcoal flavor. It's a lot like what camping in the woods would taste like. It probably sounds funny but that's what it is to me.

Mouthfeel: It has this sharp bite that kicks you in the pants. It can be pretty harsh if that's not what you're looking for in a stout. It's the type of beer you'd want to drink with some sort of snack to cleanse the palate. Nobody would ever say this beer is boring.

Overall: It was a beer that was worth trying. It had a strong presence that really does define what I'd expect from an American Stout. Lots of flavor and palate-shocking presence that makes it worth drinking. If there was an eagle perched in the forest somewhere with a crown on and a beer in his claws, this would be it.

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.
