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!

Tap at Barcade: Headless brown pour with an orange hue. Smells of sweet malts, maple, toasted, and a raisin note. Slick, thin texture, a bit attenuated. Sweet flavor as well with maple/brown sugar notes and only mild toasted qualities. Not much depth, and nearly no bitterness. Lacking balance.

Bottle. Enjoy by August 1, 2005. Ok, if you insist. Pours a red copper color with no head to speak of, but I can see active carbonation. Nose is sweet malt, roasted malt actually there along with nothing else. No hop aroma at all. Sweet malty taste with hints of hop bitterness and alcohol that really climb out and say "hello" as the beer flows to the back of the tongue and goes down the throat. Medium palate with very little carbonation, but the carb has very fine bubbles like a Belgian yeast creates. Not a bad beer, but I don’t think a top notch Victory brew. I have made better Doppelbocks than this one.

Ratman197 (13080) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of molasses, dark fruit, sweet malt and a hint of spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth.Flavors of sweet malt, brown sugar and spice with a smooth lingering bittersweet finish. Not bad but a big dissappointment for the price.

bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2007
this beer is high in alc. and big with the belgian style. I’m not a fan, it’s got a flavor thats tilted in the wrong direction of a doublebock.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Red/amber color. Smells of malt and alcohol. Nice malt character with an alcohol bite. A bit of hops. Pretty ok. That’s about it.

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a large, frothy white head. Aromas of roasted malts and a bit of yeast. Nice creamy texture with flavors of malts and typical lager. Good beer.

WBC (8) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2005 does not count
More enjoyable & approachable than the first doppelbock I tried this evening. Good appearance and a nose that was not alcohol driven, but this full-bodied lager is clearly equipped to make you stumble if you push your luck. I thought it was pretty well balanced, considering the malty backbone was tempered by a decent amount of acidity that was refreshing for this style of beer.

adrian910ss (2565) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Pours an amber ruby red color with almost no head at all. Aroma is very malty with soy sauce overtones. Flavor is malty with a slight soy sauce aftertaste and not much else. A weak offering from Victory.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2009
12 oz bottle-medium brown w/a moderate off white head. Roasted malt aroma. Had some roasted malt, some sweetness, yada, yada, yada... bitter finish. Overall, found it to be very pedestrian & forgettable...not horrible, just boring. Very disappointing offering from this brewer, not nearly up to their usual standards.
