Finally a dunkel I love.Deep authentic bavarian notes abound.As my glass has sat finished for about five minutes.It smells like a really good salty pretzel.

I generally dig all things Victory, but I do NOT dig this beer. Tastes like In-Bev brewed it......

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

Tap/ Bottle: Malty sweet aroma leads to much of the same in the flavor. Not as big in the flavor dept as I thought it would be which lead to me being a little let down.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft@PJ’s. Deep muddy amber with a nice looking head. Yeast, bready, and some slight sweetness waft from the glass. Not much going on here. Thin body with slight bready malts, floral hops, and finishing bland. Ehhh not my thing at all. Just a glorified Yuengling
