Sweet somewhat skunked nose, dark brown body with a saopy white ring of white head, chocolately and nutty, malty, alcohol is there, warming finish, a good imperial but not the wests best.

Bottle - thanks to slob (I thiink, this ones been sitting for a while). Wow, this Imperial is all that its cracked up to be - delicious! Pours thick brown that turns to black as the snifter fills. A small light brown head diminishes quickly but leaves slight lacing. Aroma is bold with lots of charcoal roasty malts, chocolate and some bittering. Flavor is awesome, very rich and smooth, like thick dark roasted espresso loaded with dark bitter chocolate and sweetened with malt syurp. The alcohol is well hidden among the massive flavors and I get some hoppiness and black cherry in the finish followed by a puckering bitter chocolate aftertaste. Full body, gentle carbonation, very round in the mouth. A top flight Impy Stout and another reason to love Victory Brewing!

Had to send away for this as for some reason, it is not available in the midwest. Small head creamy soft malt chocolate aroma. Nicely blended sweet chocolate taste, but a tad on the light side. A very good stout, amongest the best Ive had, I bet its superb fesh and on tap, but not the #2or 3 top all around beer, as some beer web site has it.

Ok at last these Victory beers are appearing in Oregon, it is about time. Bought in a 12 oz single from Liquid Solutions. In appearance its typical good stout, pitch black ,impenetrable by light, small tan head that dissapears fast.Good laceing. Nice burnt, chocolate, esspresso aromas, also a wiff of alcohol. This is nice enough..it has the complexitieds expected from a stout, the dark chocolate, rum,esspresso coffee, but I think the alcohol shows through too much and disrupts the flavour parade.But its not unpleasant. Again I think the palate starts of nice and smooth and the alcohol breaks it down somewhat to near watery. Its a good winter night drink..but I think I prefer my stouts a little less alcoholic.

Bottle. I was hesitant to buy a 6-pack of this because it was about 12 dollars. Finally found a single bottle. Very impressed. Warms my heart and lights my fire. Victory for Victory

Nice black color, tan head. Looks thick, and ends up with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Aroma is cappucino, cinnamon, vanilla and some fruity notes as well. Flavor is rather complex: starts sweet with chocolate and molasses, turns into more coffee, but there are definitely a lot hops down there, showing up with a citrusy lime taste and some flowery notes. Smoked wood dry aftertaste, with alcohol kicking in a little bit. Very well balanced, full-bodied beer. My favorite Victory...

Great color and smooth mouth feel. This beer hit on almost every note. I was a little underwhelmed by the finish but would still drink this beer again and again.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2005 Pours an opaque jet black with a little bit of tan head. Aroma is an interesting mixture of roasty malts and citrusy flowers. Flavor is very complex starting first with a smooth sweetness then a little bit of hopes, followed by a lot of coffee and finishing with a ton of bitterness. Very thick and heavy and can definitely tell theres a lot of alcohol in this one. Overall, quite a good beer. Re-rate 10/1/05: Just tried a bottle I had been aging for about a year. It absolutely knocked my socks off. Flavor mellows incredibly and its so smooth. Love it
