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.

Draught, Falling Rock (as Victory Special Lager). Head is mostly lasting. Body is dark amber to medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Not very inspiring, but reasonably decent for the style. A bit metallic in the finish, though.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Poured nice caramel dark amber color with a genereous initial head that provided lacing for the rest of the beverage. Aroma was a bit bready and sweet. Flavor was mostly malty with bread topping the caramel flavors. Almost no hops dectected. Mouthfeel was moderate and not overpowering. A bit too sweet for what I wanted, but enjoyable.

Tap @ Victory. Clear amber/copper w beige head that could have lasted longer. Very nice, clean, fresh med roast malt with light hops. Not too sweet. Pushing med bodied. I have always liked lagers. It’s nice to enjoy fine quality lagers at Victory. Quite refreshing.

Victory All Malt Dark Lager pours to a beautiful, bright, light chestnut color with a creamy white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is incredible. Deep, toasty, slight sweet and nutty aromas are balanced with just the right amount of grassy hop aromas. The palate is firm with fantastic dark malt flavors of toast, nuts, and slighty sweet malt. The body is very round and smooth, making this an exceptionally clean dunkles. All Malt Dark Lager finishes with more of the deep malt character up front, and then drys out to perfection with a balancing grassy hop bite that slightly lingers. Wow. Stylistically this beer is flawless, and is so drinkable, you can not help but reach for another one. This beer would make a perfect session beer, and will work extemely well with a number of dishes. You can match this with anything from a pizza, to a nice juicy hamburger, to grilled bratwurst, to a roasted chicken or pork dinner. This beer is a seasonal, so if Victory beers are available in your market it, look for this one, ask for this one, and enjoy this amazing dark lager!

"Poured a dark amber color with a small head, little bit of lacing. Roasted, malt aroma. Sweet and malty, little touch of a bitter flavor toward the end. Overall, very nice."

boto (1891) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - DEC 21, 2005
12 oz. bottle: This one pours a clear amber/caramel brown color, with a little off-white head on it. There is a somewhat sweet, but not too strong caramel aroma to the beer. Some floral notes also. The taste is mainly mildly sweet caramel malt. This is very smooth going down. A very nice session beer.
