From the tradition started by the monks of St. Francis of Paula in 1634 comes this warming beer of rich heritage. A dark, rich lager of sublime complexity and character, St. Victorious is created from multiple German malts. Laborious decoction mashing yields the choicest elements of the malt. Long, cold aging mellows the strong temperament of this subtle beer. Celebrate the end of winter with a warming draft of St. Victorious Doppelbock!

Tap at the brewpub in Downingtown, PA. Half pint. Commomshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche in the house. Darker amber and brown cola coloring. Nose is soft caramel and toffee with a slight toasted nutty quality. Taste is on the sweeter end initially with a burnt sugar and caramel feel. Medium body with an alcohol punch without burning the doppel bock. Bready with some roasty malt notes. It’s pretty decent...definitely come out victorious in some minor PA battles.

cwill (51) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Dark ruby hued pour with a thin head. Soft fruity, caramel sweet aroma and complex dark malts in the nose. Carbonation is moderate, creaming up on the palate. Thick mouthfeel, with lots of malty character. Complex flavors of raisin, grape, ebbing blends of caramel and chocolate. Sharpish citric-like flavor that strikes from under the malt and then retreats. Wonderfully rich burnt caramel, toffee, and grape flavors become very pronounced as the beer warms. Sweet bready taste that lingers. To date, this is the best beer I’ve ever tasted. Phenomenal American stab at the style.
