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!

Sammy (10878) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2007
Reddish brown with initial substantial foamy head. A malt work of art. Malty aroma and dark lager complex taste. Numbing on the tongue, dark fruit and very tasty. Very smooth and well done.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Bottle... Cloudy, ruby lager with a small, frothy, beige head. Fig, prune, chocolate and caramel notes in the aroma. The well-balanced flavor is malty, but generously hopped. Caramel-coated dark raisins chased by astringent, tannic bitterness. Full-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Tangy, yet clean, finish. Thanks go out to goldtwins for the bottle!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear copper with a healthy yellow head that has no retention and no lacing. Aroma is raisins, old cherry soda, some light smoked bacon. Taste is metallic, copper penny, not much else. Ick

On tap at Holy Smoke. Pours a clear caramel color with a thin white head. Light caramel, toast. Medium bodied, caramel and toast and a nice light sweetness. Gentle toast, soft finish, toast, caramel, and a gentle bitterness. Very nice session beer.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep brown-amber beer. Aroma is quite subtle, toasted lean malts with some light plummy fruit. Sweet and toasty with a kiss of caramelly mlats. Lighty chewy, sweet and a little bit fruity. Bready but there is a bit of light berryish fruit. A bit of lingering sweetness with a pronounced raspberry fruitiness. It is good, but it ain’t no dopplebock.

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 The Lure:
Grassy, wooden hops seeped into lightly smoked caramel. Munich malt and alcohol dew tint the aforementioned lusciousness. The fiery light red colour is quite appealing.

The Festivities:
Cherries seep from the Munich malts, dominating the herbal hops. Body is rather drinkable, bubbly and not heavy at all for the style.

Transcendence:
The sharing of knowledge is so pleasant.

Bottles.

3fourths (9055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2007
12oz bottle. Fresh. Deep purple and red colored body with a really nice foamy, fine-bubbled tan head, almost looks like a cask pour head. Rich, sweet nose of plum, port wine, wood tannins, red grapes, sweet oak, vanilla, toffee and amaretto. Rich and sweet and thick flavor of old plums, a little bit of brown sugar, some more toffee and wood. A really nice doppelbock, smooth and creamy and rich and very malt-forward. My expectations these days for Victory are very low, so I was genuinely surprised by this one. Very well-made.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a small disappearing beige head. The aroma is mainly caramel malt with a hint of fruit. Flavor is much of the same with the chewy caramel being most prominent. Some dried fruits, toffee, bready, and a hint of yeast. Medium to medium-full bodied and easy drinking. I’m a bit surprised that its 8%. A decent and drinkable beer.
