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.

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 (3556) - 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.

csbosox (1216) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2005 12 oz bottle from BuckNaked. Tasted from a lager glass at 41°. Orange, brown, red colors with an of white head. Malty, caramelly, bready aroma. The taste is malty and sweet with some grassiness?, nutiness, and caramel. Nice body. The finish has a touch of bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Seems very good for the style, but just not one of my favorite styles.

Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2005
On tap at the brewery. A copper color. A malty flava with some caramel and toffee present. It was pretty bland overall.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2005
Poured a very dark chestnut color. Aroma was very sweet with caramel and hops in it. I found the taste overly sweet. This was alright just not really my kind of style.

Bottle. Thanks to BuckNaked for this! Lovely copper hue with a dense foamy tan head. Nose is malty with light nuttiness, caramel, and some grassy hops. Taste is a bit hoppy and grassy, light nutty notes come through here as well, more chewy caramel, and sweet malts. Very nice! Body is medium with a full carbonation feel to it. Finishes with more hoppiness, though more earthy this time, caramel, light honey, nuts, and dried dark fruit. Nice beer!
