4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 Victory finally grew some. This in my opinion is their best beer out. Lots of toffee and chocolate. Very smooth and drinkable. I would recommend this porter to all.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 Wow! This was good. The only bad quality was the body was too thin. The beer fell apart too quick. The flavor is mostly toffee and hints of chocolate, almonds, and coffee. Slightly carbonated too. I recommend this one!
