Mostly black with lighter reddish edges and a thin light tan head. A lightly roasted malt nose with a small bit of coffee. Flavors of burnt malt, coffee notes with a little lactic tang similar to Guinness. The body was light to medium with a roasty/ grainy thin finish. I like the fact that they aimed for a low gravity stout in the classic fashion, but there needs to be some work on the body. Something a little more creamy. Or heck, put it through the nitro tap. I'm not the pro here.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Victory's version of a Guinness. Pitch black, but the head is light. Just barely off-white. Creamy.

Aroma is faint. General beer. Light barley malt.

Very light taste. Drinks easy. Some chocolate and nuts, light toast. Creamy/milky. Like an unsalted top (rye) saltine.

I had this on-tap at the Victory Brewery and Restaurant in Downingtown, PA.
Appearance: The body is a deep black color. The head is milky, tan, a finger or so tall, great retention and thin lacing.
Smell: The aromas are coffee and chocolate.
Taste: The flavors are chocolate and coffee, shots of expresso and a bit watery.
Mouthfeel: This mouthfeel is silky smooth.
Drinkability: This is a very good beer.
Don't drink and review.
