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!

On tap at Downingtown Brewhouse. Aroma is so smokey and delicious with tons of roasted malts. Not bitter by any means with a medium body. Finishes rather wet and long.

Pours a dark brown in color. Not thick like a poert or stout but thinner like a dense bock. Fairly flat in appearance. Nose is malty and peaty with a bit of heat from the alcohol. Flavor is actually fairly simple. Heavy on the malts. Nice roasted character to it. Some toffee too. Picking out some fruits, particularly overripe cherries. A rather nice burn from the alcohol too. Pleasant and soothing actually. Heavy and full mouthfeel. It would coat the cheeks but the alcohol evaporates nciely and thins it out. Solid beer.

12 oz bottle; Easy drinkin’, baby. I must say I find it impossible to believe it’s almost 8 percent. Tremendous aroma with many components. Dark brown color, clear, leaving a small light tan head. Somewhat sweet and malty taste. Medium to light in body, leaving a pleasant aftertaste.

Pours a dark mahogany with couple fingers of off-white head. Smell is of dark malts with a hint of brown sugar. Taste is definitely dark malts with a hint of sweetness in the finish but not much more to speak of. The mouthfeel was nice and balances throughout. This is a fairly drinkable brew. I gave it a solid four because it is no doubt a nice brew, but I think it lacks complexity and would expect a bit more from a doppelbock from Victory. Reviewed on: 05-21-2007

With very little effort, this could be a great bock. But for now, average! Pours smooth. But it’s AMERICIANIZED!

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.

This beer pours a rich deep red with khaki colored thick head. There is a sweet toffee and mild chocolate aroma under the head that blends nicely. This beer is mild in sweetness and bitterness which makes it very mellow and enjoyable. A nice warmth from the alcohol comes through at the end with a silky smooth mouthfeel. This beer is a real joy to drink.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark, reddish brown with a medium, off-white head. Aromas of raisins, caramel, and bourbon. Flavors of plums, peach, raisin, and nutty malts. Solid but not great.

Pours a maroon-brown from the bottle, with a whole lot of head that hangs around a bit. Smell is lightly sweet. Taste is dominated by molasses, a sweet malty characteristic. Very solid doppelbock. Becoming a fan of the Victory Brewing Company.
