COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exhibiting a deep, chestnut color and malty aroma All Malt Dark Lager is a very inviting beer. Mildly malty, with little lingering sweetness to note, Dark Lager is surprisingly refreshing. This is beer as it was meant to be, firm and satisfying. Seasonal specialty available January - April on draft.

Sample from bottle at RBSG Montreal. Darkish, thick amber body, light retained head...loads of caramel, light vanilla, smelly grasses in the nose...light doughy body, fairly full at first fading to somewhat watery and thin at the finish, lightly smoky...ehh, bit of a disappointment from Victory.

super caramely malt extract aroma, dark auburn appearance, burnt caramel dominates but the mouthfeel remains silky before a slight hop burst near the finish. Would make a top notch session beer in the fall.

considering this is an all malt dark lager, i was rather surprised that it was neither dark (more of a deep amber), and it smelled more or floral hops than anything, although there is some caramel malts coming through in the nose as well. the flavor was sweet, lots of caramels, but also alot of flowery hop flavor. still, a very nice, easy to drink lager, with alot more flavor than the helles lager, nice body, a little spicy in the tail, overall enjoyable.

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Bottle: Pours a reddish amber, I expected it to be a bit darker in hue. Small and fading head as well and almost no lace. The aroma has notes of toffee and caramelized malts, overripened pear and apricot, floral hops, and earthy esters. The taste is also surprising with it fruity notes on top of the malt base. The finish is a bit chalky and spicy with some bitters. The feel is smooth and refreshing enough but does get a bit boring after half the bottle. Okay brew with enough qualities to make it quaffable worthy.

Out of the bottle, pours a deep amber with a quick frothy head that sinks with ease. Not a heavy nose to it at all, malty though. Nice even balance to it could easily be a daily drinker.

Thamks to rich, this bottle poured a dark clear chestnut, with foamy white head leaving good lacing. Nice malty roasted nose. Nice malt flavor here, just enogh hop in the back ground to balance this. Smooth and easy to drink.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Draught sample at Victory. Mild fruity aroma, light caramel maltiness and brewed tea. Rosewater and buckwheat honey. Hops aren’t very strong. Dark amber honey clear with thin off-white lightly lacing head. Medium bodied with mild-medium carbonation. Starts sweet and dry with biscuit, buckwheat honey and mild carbonic tang. Mild sweet finishing notes, light floral hop character. Dry sweet nutty after. Just of bit of Twizzlers in the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 I rather like Victory Brewing. They make a number of fine beers. What I especially like about them is that they make rather tasty versions of beer styles that I am not high on. Dunkels for instance are not one of my preferred styles, but this was pretty tasty. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a medium tan head. The aroma is sweet roasted malt. The flavor is bitter, nutty and has a strong roasted malt presence. The roasted malt lingers on the tongue.
