Just not that tasty. All bland malts no character. i was rather surprised. Super creamy head poured dark. Mouthfeel was weak and slick. Taste was wet doggish.

Had on tap. Nitro poured into a pint glass a black color with a nice, creamy tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malt with a little nuttiness. Taste of burnt chocolate and coffee along with the roasted malts.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2007 A nice, easy drinking Guinnes like nitro-infused dry stout. It seems to be a growing trend at the time around West Chester for brewpubs and breweries to create nitro-stouts and Victory does a fine job with the style. Recommended.

Enjoyed on tap at Victory’s brew pub. Not too much going on here for a stout; probably the lightest stout I’ve ever had. Stout Light... could be trouble. Thank god for the low alcohol percent because one can definately down a few of these without thinking (try that with Victory’s Storm King...). Definately sample (at least) if you go to the pub... I tried to take it home in a growler but the server wouldn’t let me. A shame.

perfect example of the style...this makes me want to sit and drink all day long...and due to the light ABV content that is very much a possible reality!

A very thin and sad stout compared to the storm king. a different style of course, but I prefer the heavier creamier stouts to the dry stuff.

Tap on nitro at Victory Brewpub. Beautiful looking beer, dark brown with a thick off-white head. Malty nose with some nutty overtones. Feels delightfully creamy in your mouth thanks to the nitro head. Taste is somewhat thin, and a little bit bitter. Looks great and has a perfect stout mouthfeel, but in the end it doesnt do much to distinguish itself from any other traditional Irish stout.

On tap at brewery. Pours black with the creamiest head Ive seen. It didnt even look like bubbles, just some thick liquid. Aroma is roast coffee. There is a light sweetness at first and a hint of coffee on the finish. A little too watery.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft, dark bodied with ruby edges and a uniformly thin creamy off-white head that remained throughout. Had a mild cafe au lait aroma, some chocolate maltiness, and notes of dark fruits. Flavor was bitter roasted barley, cream, sweet fruity/honey malt, mildly coffee and chocolate malt. Palate was watery lacking body, yet smooth. Finish was only slightly bitter from the malt. Standard dry stout I suppose, which is why I don’t drink them.

On nitrogen tap at Trappeze in Athens, GA, this had the creamy texture you associate with NO2, but otherwise featured an almost pilsner-thin body. Subtle roast flavors dominated the nose and taste, and the finish was appropriately clean, but the thin body washed those other features out. Rather than subtle, the flavors seemed weak; rather than clean, the finish seemed watery. Not my favorite offering from Victory.
