As I popped the top and gathered the aroma, I was excited to experience this brew by Victory. According to the brews that I had listed, I was advised I would appreciate this suggestion. Watching the wonderfully viscus, onyx in appearance, liquid flow into my glass, I felt that I was in for a real treat. I watched in anticipation as the head developed into a beautiful caramel in color froth. Next, I brought my glass to my lips, fully expecting the chocolate/coffee notes that the brewery assured me of on the label, and that's where things went south. I chalk up what happened next to my inexperience with stouts because I was overwhelmed with one taste... espresso, BLACK ESPRESSO! The next thing I could taste was alcohol, which left me with a rather sour experience. If high grav stouts are your thing, then I guess this might be right up your ally, but for this "Aspirant," I will have to go back to the drawing board. I might come back to this beer at a later date to give it another shot as my palate evolves, but at this stage... I think I will move on.

4.34/5  rDev +6.6%

A - Pitch black with a light brown head

A - Coffee, Sweet, and malty

T - The taste isn't as sweet as the smell but isn't bitter. Taste coffee, dark chocolate, with a hoppy finish. The alcohol isn't noticeable which is surprising.

M- medium mouthfeel compared to most stouts, but heavy for a non stout drinker. really smooth however.

Overall this is a good stout, not the best I've had from Victory, but they still prove to be a solid brewery.
