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.

RBSG 2005. Amber brown body, smallish white head. (3+) Sweet malt and caramel aroma is quite nice. Flavour is similar to the aroma, with malt and caramel and mild toasty notes. While pleasant, it is less robust than hoped for from the aroma. Average palate. Quaffable and servicable, but lacking complexity.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep amber beer. No head. Aroma is strange, lightly herbal and toasty. Earthy and lightly chewy with a light herbal bitterness and a bit of light earthiness. Soft bitterness with some light chewy maltiness. Earthy and a little bit chewy. It’s not bad. Lingering crackery malts.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Malty aroma with a moderate amount of sweetness and some toast. The flavor is malty sweet with lighter notes of toast and bread. Decent.

jredmond (7458) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Had awhile back at PJs [copper lager] - didnt realize it was a victory. Poured a dark copper body with small head. The aroma was light, but sweet. The taste is smooth with some malt in the finish.

Ernest (7320) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2007
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.

Dark gold lager with average bubbly head. Aroma of full sweet malt. On fruitier side. Slightly alcoholic, some light roast and sweeter malt.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Sampled at the RBSG ‘05 bottle tasting courtesy of Dickinsonbeer: Pours a dark copper amber with a lightly-lacing light tan head. Aroma is nicely malty and bready wit good German lager characteristics. Body has a pleasant, mild sweetness with good hop balance and drinkability. An enjoyable brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2005
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.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Bottle: Pours a reddish amber, I expected it to be a bit darker in hue. Small and fading head as well and almost no lace. The aroma has notes of toffee and caramelized malts, overripened pear and apricot, floral hops, and earthy esters. The taste is also surprising with it fruity notes on top of the malt base. The finish is a bit chalky and spicy with some bitters. The feel is smooth and refreshing enough but does get a bit boring after half the bottle. Okay brew with enough qualities to make it quaffable worthy.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
Light off-white head quickly leaves the medium brown body. Fairly light flavors, bready maltiness pairing along an almost nutty, fruity toasted malt aspects. Good sweet-dry balance. More roastiness than most. Satisfying light body, perhaps a bit too tart, though we’re mostly talking fruit acids.
