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!

In the brewpub in D-town,, an excellent brew when available. Enough hops to make all the sugar bearable. Great looking ruby with lacy head. Good with the wings!

AgedOak (99) - Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Dark brown red tint with a beige moderate head dissipating to a ring around the glass. Lots of carmel and a bit of smoked nuts in the nose. A sugary (brown) sweetness and malty taste strikes the tounge. Finishes with a touch of alcohol. Full bodied and somewhat complex. A very nice dopplebock.

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.

BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2008
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.
