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.

Another fine beer from my favorite Brewery. Definitely a beer I can see myself drinking a lot of at one sitting.

A hoppier than your average Dunkel that makes a good session beer.

Some sour wheatish, yeasty flavours predominate over a sickly, sweetish malt backbone. This thing is really weird and suggests that Victory is a mortal brewery after all. Actually reminds me of a pot of soaking dirty laundry.

For a Dunkel this is pretty good. I would have liked it if it had more hop flavor and bitterness but a good malty brew, you will like this. I thought the appearance was pretty good for a dunkel, if it were any darker they would have to call it a schwartzbier but the slightly lighter brown color is suiting to the style. I have had other darks that werent as good, you need to get this one fresh, as i have had some other dark lagers like penn dark that were old and you can certainly taste the difference. A must try if you like others from Victory.

Watery, average, not as good as expected, too light for a dark lager

Crisp, clean, and fresh. Malty, though not as rich as expected. Color is also light for a Dunkel.

This is good stuff - had it on tap on a binge and found it malty enough to catch my attention mid jag.

Nicely malty and clean, with a very moderate hop balance. Above average.

It’s nice to have a friend who lives in Rhode Island, who once a quarter sends me beers from the East and Northeast, I send him beers from the West and Northwest, This time it’s Victory. Malty, semi-sweet, fair hops and a wonderful yeasty grainy aroma.
