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!

Pours with a deep amber/red body topped by a thin to medium thick head with little lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with notes of alcohol, a little brown sugar and a slight bitter hoppiness that throws it off. Full bodied, slightly tingly and a touch warming.

Very enjoyable. Dark brown pour, sweet malty smell. Solid flavor. ABV not noticeable. Really enjoyed that it wasn’t over sweet.

Bottle thanks to zathrus for the opportunity to try this. Dark chestnut brown pour raising a peanut butter head only when poured vigorously. Sweet malty nose. Kinda reminded me of squaw bread. Very nice brew, sweet but not cloying. Abv well hidden. Finishes clean.

Suttree (5407) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Claear brown no head. Spicy, toasty aroma. Syrupy sweet (in a good way) and herbal notes in the finish. As it warms, there some noticeable alcohol heat, too. Dusty, dry at the end. Thanks to Doclock for the trade!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Poured a clear very deep ruby color with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, blood orange, and a tought of alcohol. Malty flavors of caramel, light on the dark fruit and a moderate bittering in the middle and long finish. Semi-dry finish. Medium bodied.

muzzlehatch (4422) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 15, 2005
12 oz bottle, courtesy of master trader Jeffin, thanks so much bud! Tawny reddish maple, clear and dark, with a thick taupe head and bit of lacing...superb, complex aroma, principally of caramel and old port with touches of latte and orange cream, and later on baked pears, just wonderfully rich and decadent...body, too is rich, silky smooth and luscious without cloying, a chocolate-caramel malted milkshake always hinting at espresso bitterness that finally makes its presence felt at the finish...if there is a problem, it is that the richness is overwhelming; I could never drink two of these at a sitting, though I’m awfully glad for the one!

Thanks to Jeff for sending this nice doppelbock out my way. Pours a dark plum red with a tall light tan head. Rich sweet fruity malts with some dry cocoa up front and caramel following. Very smooth and heavy texture to a well balanced brew.

kane (111) - USA - MAR 12, 2005
Ruddish brown color with a thick small bubble head. a sweet, spicy malt aroma. Thick mouthfeel. Sweet toffee taste with a long sweet aftertaste. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Not one that is big on sweet beers but this was good if not very memorable.
