Pours an opaque black colour with a thick foamy head. Delicious aromas of roasted malt, chocolate and hops. Thick body. Fantastic taste of roasted malt and dark chocolate with a great hop bitterness. I'll be getting more of these!

SiddFinch (155) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Thick, brown head with a roasted coffee aroma. Mouthfeel was very, very oily. Flavor dominated by roasted malts and chocolate. Stays on your tongue a while. Very good.

Gunny (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2004
Opaque black with a thick, malted milk head. Aromas of vanilla, white oak, chocolate and pungent, aromatic hops balanced by smouldering, dark roasted malt. All hops to start followed by a dark roasted malt bitterness, licorice root, plum and double short espresso. Lingering bittersweet finish. An enjoyable, well crafted Stout.

Amazing pour. Slow and creamy, black as night. Bitter aroma. Malts and roasted chocolate. Aftertaste that lingers for days. Submlime.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Really a very nice beer and a great Imperial Stout, this one features a big, bold, roasty, delicious flavor that lingers for days. If only the aroma was as big and bold, this could be even greater!

Baroque1977 (25) - Southeastern, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Delicious, as with all the Victory brews... PERFECT balance between the malts and hops, high alcohol content is simply not noticeable. An incredible brew, A+.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - FEB 3, 2004
Jet black with a frothy, brown head. Lace is thick and gobbish. Aroma is unsweetened dark chocolate, burnt coffee and a deep ethereal roastiness. Rich full mouthfeel, redolent of alcohol soaked chocolate. Creamy smooth with a bite of floral hops which keeps my mouth swirling with flavors. Outstanding.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2004 This stout was so thick, it was almost chewy. Very thick roasted malt and carmel expresso taste that follows the initial almost overbearance of hops. More hops than most but not yet overhopped. Great Stout!

shameusburp (171) - Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2005 Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee and hops. Appearance is black with a firm full head. Flavor is identical to aroma but exponentially enhanced. Hops, chocolate and coffee are blended together in equal parts to perfection. Ive enjoyed this Imperial Stout many times and as the high overall rating this stout demonstrates that this stout is among the best Imperials and can be argued best overall beer. 12/20/2005 Not such great shit anymore.
