Pours a cloudy deep amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma is hoppy at first, then the malty sweetness begins to dominate the nose. Hoppy flavor up front, then switches to a malty sweetness that is very tart and ends with a long sweet finish. Very good, and would make a good session beer. I have yet to be disappointed by Victory.

A very nice beer to drink with a bratwurst and sauerkraut sandwich. Very smoth and creamy. Nothing overly impressive with this beer, but just nicely flavored and easy to drnk. Appearance is similar to a clearly nut brown beer. Minimal head and fair lacing. ravidesai (979) - Bombay, INDIA - APR 15, 2003
a good silid dunkel that holds up well against most german brewers.
dark brown, with a bready nutty nose.
taste is predominantly malty and sweet but it has a zesty hop finish.
another good victory beer. surfmurf (85) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2004
At last a beer that smells, looks and finally tastes like a beer should! Perhaps my quest is over and I’ve found a new favorite. This stuff was exquisite. Overall a balance of perfectly blended grains that hit the spot and made me want another just to savor again.

Pours clear dark brown. Aroma of caramel and sweet malt. Flavor is sweet malt and caramel. Clean finishing malt bomb. Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2005
Thamks to rich, this bottle poured a dark clear chestnut, with foamy white head leaving good lacing. Nice malty roasted nose. Nice malt flavor here, just enogh hop in the back ground to balance this. Smooth and easy to drink. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 1, 2005
This was the first Dunkel I’ve rated. Pours a darker amber with a small tan head. Slight aroma of malt, roasted nuts and even some prunes. Picking up the malts and slight alcohol in the taste. Some similarities to Victorys "regular" lager, although I enjoyed this one a bit more. robiannelli (599) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2012
On tap at P.J.’s pours a dark amber with a nice white head. Aroma is malty a bit of cereal and a bit bread doughy. Flavor is sweet with a heavy malt characteristic. Body is medium and has a real nice mouth feel. Finish is a touch sweet and bready jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Red-copper with big, creamy, tan head, good legs / Malty, toasty nose of roast grain, malt, burnt sugar / Light to medium body, very soft carbonation, smooth, some sweetness, mild hopping but well balanced, with lots of toast and just a hint of bitterness on the finish / Flavors of toast, malt, roast almonds, maple, with notes of burnt citrus / Pleasant, but mostly all toast and malt, and approaching flat.
