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!

12 oz. pours translucent reddish brown with just a ring of white head. Smell of roasted caramel malt, toffee and some dark fruits are most notable. Very smooth roasted caramel, some molasses, and cearal. Mouthfeel is meduim and the finish is roasty bitterness but not very long and dry but smooth.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford, CT. This is a really nice blended Doppelbock with a smooth, creamy finish with notes of wood, cherry and leather. The ABV is masked well, as the body is medium.

Amber pour with a medium head. Aroma of malts, some candied fruit. Flavor was sweet, with a weird sort of aftertaste, kind of sugary.

12 oz bottle. Poured into a mug. A somewhat clear amber in color. Medium carbonation. Sweet malt in the nose, lots of malt in the taste. A very light hop in the finish. Body is much thinner then the German varieties. A good beer by a American brewery however, not as superior as the true German brews of the style. You do not taste the alcohol as it states that it is 7.9% ABV.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark oak color with a nice thick off white head. Aroma has molasses, some caramel, and tons of malts. Flavors are also mostly malt: sweet with hints of molasses and some spice. Full bodied and a very tasty brew.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear garnet brown glowing with a smaller fine off-white head, looks great. Aroma is nicely rich munich and vienna malt, bit of oxidation in there, some fading hops, very nice. Flavor follows, really really nice, but again maybe a bit too hoppy, fantastic rich German malt flavor, love the richness, like cinnamon, some crystal flavor, really lacks a bit of mouthfeel, maybe too clean? Medium bodied, smooth glassy feel, lighter carbonation, maybe could use a bit of grittiness, but really easy drinking, nails that 8%, I’m not complaining it’s very good.
