I'm going to compare a bit to the parent beer, Hammer Smashed Face in reference to this one. Vulgar Display of Power is black as night - just like Hammer Smashed Face. VDP also displays the same plum/raisins flavors from before, perhaps more prominently and less boozy. Grains have become more prominent in this one, Astringent/kind of clean taste. More open notes then HSF but less sophistication. However this is an extremely balanced, heavy, dope stout - coffee, plums. roasted malts. Jesus.

Really good beer but alcohol taste is very evident. Could cut back on abv a bit and be a top notch beer.

Coffee notes, really good. Ode to the greatest metal band, Pantera.

What impressed me most about this was the mouthfeel; it is velvety and soft, not sticky or gummy. I also enjoyed the amount of vanilla bean in the beer, again not so much to make it sweet or sticky. I found this extremely drinkable.
