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 a deep ruby red with a beautiful creamy head. The head is dense and doesnít diminish. Smells a bit rich and malty, booze, sweet and yet tart cherries. Chocolate is predominately upfront and is the first notable flavor. This is followed by some sweet and tart cherries. Hops are barely noticeable, but the finish is a bit dry. Thick rich chewy malts, chocolate, and a light tart cherry are the most notable flavors.

Pours an absolutely beautiful, red, almost crimson, especially the bottom matches the deep crimson of the bottle. The carbonation is pretty fizzy, but pleasantly so, sparkling and sharp. The taste is really too complex to discern, but raisins and chocolate stand out.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Bottle from Samís in Durham. Pours on the lighter side of the Doppelbock spectrum... clear medium brown with yellowish-beige small head that visits briefly and then goes back home. Nose of dark caramel, burnt sugar, very subtle chocolate hints. Tastes similar, with added grain. Nothing special here. Didnít really feel like finishing, but maybe that was because my neighbor brought over some better beers to try.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2011
not my fav style to be sure, way too malty sweetness. the first few sips are ok, but a tough one to finish when it gets a little warm. strips the mouth a little, the taste is again, malts, and some wheat or grass lagerness. not terrible but wont be doing it again. One of Michael Jacksons 500 classic brews.

Bottle pours a clear deep red with a thin tan head. Scent is caramel malts and molasses. Taste is malty sweet the hoppy with a dry finish.

I had this poured out of the bottle into a wine glass (donít judge me). It poured a dark amber with little white head. It had a sweet malt flavor with a bit of the alcohol showing. Slightly toasty nut. Not bad, not great.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Dark brown pour with a ruby hue, small light tan head that dissipates quickly. Strong malt, sugar and alcohol aroma, typical for the style. Sweet flavor, mostly malt but some dark fruit (dates) and warming from the alcohol. Medium full bodied, sticky sweet. A very good dopplebock.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2011
12oz bottle. 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.
