355ml bottle from Brewdog's Online Shop (£3.80):
Black with a 0.5cm brown lacing & good retention for the abv. The head even looks slightly creamy.

Medium roasted malts with sweetness & chocolate as well. Coffee, dark, ripe fruits & a dark malt bitterness come through with a few hops. Nice, complex with a good balance & most of the alcohol hidden.

Coffee & a chocolate sweetness. Strong dark malts taste very faint alcohol. Dark fruit start & some hops plus some good roasted flavours.

Smooth, creamy with the alcohol pretty well hidden. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Easy to drink, frighteningly so with some bitterness & a dry finish.

A good imperial stout with a pleasantly sweet taste & a good combination of chocolate &coffee initially. The hops were a great addition & it proved easier to drink than a 9% abv. beer should have done with the alcohol well hidden for the most part. Great stuff this one.

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.
