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!

Mostly brown with copper undertone, thin off white head. A sweet nuttiness in the nose, roasted malt background. Medium in body with a somewhat creamy texture. Slightly more hoppy/bitter then expected with an almost coffee like finish.

Hair6a11 (1423) - Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle; Pour is dark brown / ruby with a bubbly beige head that retains quite poorly in this dimpled mug. The nose is chestnuts, caramel. and baked breads. The flavor profile , i had to honestly ’warm up’ to. It’s nutty, with sweetness in abundance (caramel, brown sugar); but it was a little bitter and buttery out of the gate. As I alluded to , that improved,and actually dissipated into a nice doppelbock that works fairly well.

Nickls (1942) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Tap. Clearer ruby orange-brown with a slightly tan head. Nutty and toasty, lightly sweet with a touch of roast in the aroma. Light smoke in the flavor that comes in alongside the darker fruit and toffee notes with some cherrywood. Medium body with very bubbly carbonation. Pretty nice.

Rosted malt and honey aroma. A strong presence of sweet brown sugar, roasted malts and hop in the taste. A good warm and dry finish. I liked it.

Pours a clear ruby amber hue with small brown head. This beer looks great. Aroma was caramel and roasted nuts. Taste was sweet with some coffeeish bitters on the finish. The mouthfeel was thicker then expected.

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.
