COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

boxofrane (2062) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Draft at lucky lab. Pours clear reddish copper with minimal head. The aroma has some smoke, caramel, light floral notes. The taste has a big smokiness and some hickory, smokiness. Nice!

GTAEgeek (1165) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at the Thirsty Monk. Dark copper color, with a small, beige head. Caramel, syrup, earthy hops, and some pine. Faint notes of smoked meats. Very sweet at first, with a rather forward hop bite toward the finish. The result is a nicely balanced, sweet, bitter, and spicy flavor. Medium to heavy body, with a lively mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good American Doppelbock. Nicely hopped, without overwhelming the malts.

Medium brown in the glass. Aroma of chocolate malt and toasted grain. Very smooth on the palate with rich chocolate malt flavor. Slight smokiness. Wonderful.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Draught at Blind Tiger. Pours dark clear amber. The taste of alcohol is strong here and definitely strong malts, smoke and toasted caramel. A decent beer.

Had this as a draft and it was considerably carbonated. It had a really lovely nutty, barnayardy quality with banana esters.

NikkTwist (1539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2012
Draft at the Khyber. Poured a very dark ruby - nice color (make sure you hold it up to a bright light!) Small white head disapeared quickly. Sweet dark fruits balanced with some darker elements. Burned oak wine barrels. Coffee liquor. Tinge of sour and smoke. Not fantastic, but interesting and unusual.
