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!

Did not have that strong Doppelbock sting to the flavor. Smooth drinking with nice malty taste.

I'm not impressed. Red, quickly diminishing head. Smells dry and ashy, but it tastes somewhat medicinal, like Robitussin. Not much like most dopplebock's I've had, but there's also a lot of alcohol to hide.

Very well masked alcohol - a little bitter for a doppelbock, but still has its share of malty sweetness - not what I was expecting, but still good - light and easy drinking for the style.

A really pleasant doppelbock, but a very light one. I'd actually consider it a bock. Didn't taste the alcohol at all.

Braudog (5966) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 7, 2003
Deep red color and thin. Sweet syrupy aroma. Interestingly mellow 'til the finish when it takes on a vaguely mediciney appeal, but in a pleasant way. Damn good!

Growler bottled from tap. Striking clarity. Frankly quaffable double bock, with perhaps more hops than are often seen in examples of this style. All the malt you'd want. Thanks be to LiebeBier for lugging this back from Downingtown.

yummmm - a bit thinner on the palate than I remember but still a kick ass Doppelbock. Sweet, malty yet with enough hops to not be overly syrupy. As someone else noted it was lacking a bit on aroma, but I might attribute that to the over chilled temp. it was served at where I had it.

Sweet malt flavor, hides the alcohol perfectly. A very good Doppelbock.

Light brown color with slight tan head. This beer is ridiculously smooth for 8% ABV. Malty and rich. Only negative, not much aroma. Otherwise an outstanding beer.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2010 I’ve had celebrator and optimator, but this one is better IMO. Very deep amber red with very slight head, which left nice lacing on the glass. The smoothest and easiest to drink doppelbock. Lots of sweetness from the malts but has some hop balance to it. Lots of caramunich gives it its nice sweet maltiness and deep amber color. No harsh astringent flavors that can be found in some bocks. I was feeling the alcohol after a 20 oz glass.
