hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap at the Victory Brew Pub. Poured a medium amberish/brownish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of toasted graininess. Tastes of the toasty/roastiness, grains, and just all around ’interestingly different’. Lacing left on the glass.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2009
Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep brown pour with almost no head at all. The aroma is lightly herbal with a pronounced grassiness and a touch of cocoa as well. There is a light spicy hop note but also a touch of soapiness as well. The hops are quite pronounced with a fairly assertive herbal/earthiness. The flavour never really seems to come out all that much though. Fairly bitter with a kiss of roasty astringency. Warming improves this really with the lighter zesty hoppy notes throwing a bit more complexity. When it’s cold, all you get is a clash of herbal hops and cocoa. Not bad, but it’s a strange one.

GT2 (7900) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Growler 1 day old thanks to MrChopin. Pours a clear, deep cola. Thick, coffee foam. Big retention and lace. Nose is grassy hops, hazelnut, whole wheat pizza crust, earth. Taste is dry, bitter, coffee, dark chocolate, waxy bitter chocolate bar. Really good. Palate is snappy, crusty, bready... bringing that Victory pils palate to a schwarzbier. Quite nice and very different. A special treat!

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Draft at Victory, and the 2nd beer I’ve been the 10th rater of today, after having that happen only twice in the last 7 years. Pours deep brown. Nose is earthy malt, some hops, dark fruit, and cherry notes. Tastes malty, hoppy, with an earthy caramel note at the base, and earthy notes throughout. Unique, but I think we need to classify that Victory called this a pils, not a scwarz.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2011
On tap at Holy Smoke. Pours a clear caramel with a medium sized white head. Lightly floral, toast and malt. Clean hop profile. Malty, big noble hop flavors coming through, with some more light floral notes. Nice big bitterness and toast. Long tannic finish with toast and more hop bitterness.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Draft. Pours copper brown with a beige head. Light roast in the aroma, with a hint of sweetness. A surprising amount of hops in the flavor, with lighter notes of roast and sweet malt. Pretty good.

douglas88 (5575) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 4, 2013
A really unusual brew. On tap at Fat Heads. Pours a brown color with a medium white head. A light nose of pine and sweet Pils malt. The flavor is rich bitter hops, pine, roast, chocolate. All in a pretty small beer. Good. Interesting and drinkable.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Draft. Pours an orange body with a white cream good head retention. Malty up front with light coco notes but quickly softened by a grass y noble hop tone. A bit spicy in terms of the hoppy grass tones and some bitter resinous oily tones. A hint of citrus and sharp finish. Delicious.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2009
[Draft @ EB+B] Poured a dark brown / amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, toast, toffee, citrus, and light floral hops. Taste was bitter roast, hops, light citrus, some toast, and a bit of sweet toffee. The roasted notes were a bit too much, considering the strong hop profile in this one.
