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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Sample from bottle at RBSG Montreal. Darkish, thick amber body, light retained head...loads of caramel, light vanilla, smelly grasses in the nose...light doughy body, fairly full at first fading to somewhat watery and thin at the finish, lightly smoky...ehh, bit of a disappointment from Victory.

Poured mostly clear amber color with a medium creamy beige head. Fruity and thick caramel malt. Some aged malt character. Malty with some tart fruitiness and a caramel base. Medium bodied.

hotstuff (4285) - Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Rated on 02-28-2013 at Victory B.C. This draft beer’s appearance is a small beige head with a short retention, transparent copper body, no visible carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and toasty. The flavor mimics the aroma. This beer’s mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. A very quaffable session beer that I would drink again.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Draught sample at Victory. Mild fruity aroma, light caramel maltiness and brewed tea. Rosewater and buckwheat honey. Hops aren’t very strong. Dark amber honey clear with thin off-white lightly lacing head. Medium bodied with mild-medium carbonation. Starts sweet and dry with biscuit, buckwheat honey and mild carbonic tang. Mild sweet finishing notes, light floral hop character. Dry sweet nutty after. Just of bit of Twizzlers in the finish.

zach8270 (3585) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 13, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 (draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark chestnut color with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is very sweet and malty with a light touch of hops. Flavor is very sweet and smooth with a nice balanced finish and a very smooth aftertaste.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2008
On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a dark amber with a small head. Aroma of sweet malts. Flavor is very malty, including some roasted malts. Pretty decent beer, not too much going on here, but it serves its purpose well.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2013
hazy chestnut pour, large-bubbled puffy cream head, drops quickly leaving ample lacing. Desert-like nose is spiced green apple, brown sugar, cinnamon. Rich pumpernickel flavor up front, crusty and dry through toasty mod with a finish that lasts as it warms, maple and crust. Hoppy aroma teases throughout but makes no presence in flavor.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Brown-tinged amber with a light ring of head. Easy malty and nuttiness in the nose with excellent use of traditional Munich malt. The body is accented by Munich malt and subtle nuttiness and also flashes honeyed grain notes and touches of fresh grain and sawdust. Dry finish.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Tap at Barcade. Glad to see this. Pours yellow with a bright white ring. Light slightly malty nose. Taste is sweet, malty rich and amazingly drinkable.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Corny, grainy aroma, with tomato. Wet hay, light corn. A very weak interpretation of the style, with no distinct characteristics. Comes across more as a slightly darkened American lager.
