Not exactly as dark as the other ABAs I've had, if I recall - amber.
Smells of roasted malts, shortbread or biscuity with the smallest hint of apple or pear somewhere in the background.
Is a surprising first sip - big hops - not overwhelmingly bitter, or stingingly astringent necessarily - but spicy and fruity. You know it's Victory immediately. Afterward, as it starts to warm up, you get a malty backbone strong enough to hang those juicy hops on; they're almost bitter orange & linger on the exit. It's just the slightest bit toward the heavy side; it's too hefty to be "sessionable," it'd do you well to savor it.
