An exquisite blend of imported malts and whole flower American hops merge harmoniously in this complex ale.

poured from a 12 oz bottle to a snifter glass best y 2016 believe its a 2011 or 2012 vintage (not really sure) in any event

A- pours midnight black, with a 3 finger fluffy and pillowy beige head

S- grassy hops, musty milk chocolate, hints of vanilla and anise, some coffee

T- citrus hops, grapefruit, sweet black licorice, sweet chocolates, sugary fruits, touches of alcohol found throughout finishes super bitter and extremely dry

M- Medium to full in body, slighty "watery" for an Imp stout, very smooth, sugary, sweet, and bitter.

O- I'm sure this beer is at least a year old and the hops are still very present, this drinks like a big boy black ipa, i like this beer more with every sip.

Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a pitch dark black, with a 2 inch head, mocha-colored, and a lot of lacing down the glass.

Smells like highly roasted malt, chocolate, with some hoppiness definitely evident, of the pine and citrus variety.

The taste is similar. This beer is so rich and thick. There is a lot of hop flavor/bitterness, some pine and citrus zest flavors, but these don't overwhelm as much as I thought they would, as there is so much melted chocolate and dark roasted malt flavors to play off the bitterness.

Thick bodied, fairly viscous, very creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Despite all of the intense flavors, this one is very drinkable. Low carbonation.

One of Victory's best beers, always a favorite of mine.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours midnight black with some tan foam. Clings around the edges. Strong dark chocolate nose. Taste is smooth and creamy, chocolate-milk like middle, closing with a firm coffee-infused bitter that lingers and takes hold. More bitter as the beer warms Residual feel a touch harsher than ideal.
