Dark brown/black. Lots of khaki head that kind of looks like a nitro pour.

Creamy toated/charred nose. Bitter chocolate and a little bit of oak. Slight mineral notes.

Bitter chocolate, cigarettes, and coffee grounds. Nothing at all. What is this?

Water. The thinnest stout I've ever had. Absolutely embarrassing.

Heavy char and dirty ash tray with a bit of a bite. The body was a bit thin which didn't mesh with the flavor for me. Interesting but not my favorite.

It had a very thick and foamy head. I did not enjoy this beer. It has a toasty/roasted aroma. There was some minor roast in the flavor. There was also a "sea watery" flavor character as well. I was pretty disappointed because I typically like most of Victory's beers.

Very light in body. I wish there was a touch more roasted bitterness in the taste although I got a lot of cashew flavor which was very appealing. Could be a bit more balanced.
