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!

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 Bottle. Pours a foggy reddish brown with a nice brown head that retreats to the edges quickly. Clean, fresh aroma with dark fruit, hinted sweetness, and floral subtleties. Really nice, but needs to be bigger. Taste has brown sugar, light spices, more dark fruit. Slight oxidation. Finishes clean with some woodiness. Texture of this beer was thick but soft and forgiving. Well done, and I don’t even like the style much.

On tap in sampler at the Downingtown Brewpub. Pours brown with a off white head. Malt aroma with smokiness. Flavor starts caramel maltiness with dark fruit flavors and some nice smokiness. This is a really smooth beer.

retinadoc (120) - - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Very satisfying. Hoppy aroma, average carbonation. Well balanced mouthfeel; good but not overwhelming hop flavors. Slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable; belies its high ABV.

caramel sweetness and a bit of syrup this brew is good in roasty malt flavor and aroma. a bit of flower and ivy with citrus hop for measure. some red fruitiness not overdone and still very traditional in style. good stuff.
