Dark black in color and impenetrable to light. A fingernail thin khaki colored head sits on top. Light Brussels lacing. There is a light aroma of black licorice and roasted barley. This is a bit more on the sweeter end of the stout spectrum. The front of the palate is black licorice and roasted barley. The back of the palate is a blend of bitter roasted barley and piney hops. The mouth is thick and sticky.

A. black in color midnight black . nice light brown head fairly impressive head for a 9.1 ABV..
S, sweet , some hops , malt , coffee , bitter chocolate.
T. close to perfect. no idea why this beer is not rated higher as it is the perfect all American RIS. has everything I look for in a RIS and the best lacing I ever seen in a RIS . Victory gets an A+ on taste and face it , that is the main reson we drink the stuff :)
M. medium and sticky , oily and coats the mouth.
D. I keep this beer as well as old Rasputin in my rotation at all times.
if you see it , buy it drink it review it ...

3.6/5  rDev -11.5%

A: Completely black and opaque, reasonably creamy head with good retention (3/3)
S: Dark chocolate, maybe even coffee, ALCOHOL, with light raisin throughout (10/12)
T: BOOZEY, 100% dark cocoa on front end, heavy malt character, with malty finish, can detect raisin especially in aftertaste, but holy crap does that alcohol dominate…burns a little, then maybe a little metallic when getting ready for next sip (13/20)
F: Very bubbly in front, creamy in middle, very dry finish (5/5)
O: Wow…at 9.1%, these guys aren’t kidding around. The flavor profile definitely rounded out after the first few overwhelming sips but after having Samuel Smith and Rasputin and not being overwhelmed, I feel like it doesn’t need to taste this strong. (6/10)
36/50
