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!

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 thin tan head, dark orange/brown pour, wonderful taste! sweet aroma of caramel and nuts, moderately sticky palate. much more than i was expecting, and very much worth coming back to.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body with a minimal fizzy beige head that completely disappeared. The nose is a full-on malt bomb with some slight nuttiness, roast, and husky grains. A touch of alcohol as well. The flavor is similarly malty with some light roast and coffee undertones. On the sweeter side with a little husky graininess. Not a whole lot of yeast influence, with a slightly hot finish. Fairly thick and chewy in texture with fizzy prickly carbonation. Not bad, though I could do without some of the grainy quality.

The nose is full of toasted caramel and butteryness. The taste is as expected although the sweetness is not cloying as one might expect with such a nose. The palate helps along those lines with lager crispness and lively carbonation. It pours a clear, sparkling dark brown with a small off white head. Victory is definitely victorious with this one!

Pours a clear dark amber/mahogany with a quickly fading tan head... aroma is sweet w notes of caramel and brown sugar dominating the malt forward nose... flavor is not as sweet but definitely malt forward, good flavor, some dryness, medium to medium full bodied, very drinkable... lingering sticky finish...

Not my favorite Doppelbock, it flattened out rather quick and the taste didn’t stand up to its peers..

One of my favorites. Amber caramel color with a sweet malty start that finishes with a lingering bitterness.

12 oz. Pours a pitch brown with small, dense tan head. Aroma is very nutty with the sweetness of vanilla. First thing that came to mind with the flavor was hot chocolate supported by caramel and more nuts. Good thick mouthfeel, finishing with a little sweet residue left behind.
