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!

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Aromas of alchohol with medicinal almost wintergreen type aroma with some malt aromas that are faint in the background. Nice med brown color that was very bright and clear. Head was a small tan color but it did last for some time. Odd off flavors that are slightly astringent and lacking the full malt sweetness that I was expecting. I do beleive victory is having some problems with their beers as of late. I didn’t care for their 10 years and now I detect some trouble with their doppelbock. I’m surprised to read other reviews on this beer and wonder if they had the same beer as I did. This is far from a classic doppelbock and I have drank quite a few of the style and brewed some myself. I don’t know whats going on but I hope they get the problems resolved and start making good beer again. I will try it again in the future and see how it is.

Pours a reddish brown with a small tan head. Rather weak aroma of caramel and alcohol. A little too much bitter and not enough sweet. Disappointing.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 22, 2007
Pours a ruby red, with mahogany accents and a huge buttery, beige head. Aroma is lager hops, tootsie roll, lemon, barley. Taste is sweet, grapes, tootsie pop, synthetic chocolate

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 8, 2005
Poursa a deep ruby brown hue with no head and no lacing. Aromas of caramel, a hint of sherry and a hint of wheat and brown sugar and some roasted nuts. Flavors are grassy and medicinal with a light bitterness. Lingering alcohol finish. Overall, lacking any depth or quality flavor.

Dark fruit and maybe peach. Tobacco and perhaps cola. Bland metalic-mineral malt taste that turns me off.

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 20, 2007
The color of mars in the sunset is the best thing about this. Breaded aroma, brown sugar, slightly hot. Rocky flavor. Metallic, coarse, and earthy. Obscure dark fruits. My opinion of Victory suffers no dramatic changes here - I find this one rough and unsatisfying. Sorry folks.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2007
Dark amber body with ample off-white head. Alcohol and malt on the nose. Slightly sour with a malty flavor. I think this bottle was well past its prime.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Brewed in the USA... Courtesy of AFI96, thanks Waylo. Pours a garnet color with a thin off white head. Aroma of malts and wheat. Taste is of tobacco and figs. Overall, i must say that this was strange doppelbock because of the tobacco flavor which really annoyed me. Nothing against Victory, but i was not a fan of this one.

Amber brew,clear and with no head.Some caramel and fruity notes but another shoulda’ been offering from Victory. I stopped to sip this and pull some flavors out but.... Gone the way of the once mighty Storm Knig.
