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.

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."

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.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Dark caramel brown, cleary body with thin tan ringing head. Sweet chocolate, malt aroma. Sweet malty flavor reminiscent of a Munich dunkel. Very similar to the Munich Hofbrauhaus dunkel in fact. Medium palate.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) I guess I always expect great things from Victory, but I’m a little underwhelmed by this boring beer. Toasty malts, mildly bitter and hoppy, and minimally sweet, there’s just not much here, and the dark malt all but disappears in the "lagerish" finish. It’s kind of like drinking slightly sweetened iced tea. Lightly toasty and malty nose isn’t very aromatic. Medium bodied when first sipped, but the finish is pretty watery. Orange-brown color isn’t the prettiest, and the small light tan head fades to the tiniest of rings. I’d been trying to get my hands on this beer for years, but I feel like I’ve been missing anything during my pursuit. Bland and boring.

An orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, and the flavor besides the caramel also have some roasted notes, leading to a dry end. Boring.

Best before Aug. 15, sampled September 18. I have waited to try this for years and was happy to find that it was even better than I had anticipated. Big sweet malt which came into focus and dried out perfectly with a little hop spice, a malty crack and even a bit of acidic snap. Reminds me a lot of Victory’s old All-Malt Dortmunder, actually, just a shade darker in appearance and in malt character. A new favorite.
