COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Victory version of this secret offering is inspired by the rich brewing heritage of the alt beers. It is a dark ale exhibiting the love of hops and mastery of malt that Victory has displayed for 10 years. Initially assertive with spicy hops, Ten Years Alt concludes ever so comfortably in rich, roasted malts and burnished hop character.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel and aroma hops. Fairly full body with lots of caramel malt and a very bitter finish. But Altbier? At 8.5% ABV?? No way. 160806

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2007
Beautiful amber color. Aroma of caramel. Strong mouthfeel, strong taste of dark caramel, almost burnt sugar, molasses. Good and powerful, but the bitterness in the end is too strong.

Oakes (16469) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2008
Orangey head. Large Munich malt aroma full of biscuits and breadcrust. Richly caramelly, sweet Munich overdose. A shade husky/minerally. Decent, but perhaps too assertive for my taste.

mcberko (16033) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2016
On tap at Baileys, pours a hazy orange amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is quite hoppy for an alt, with notes of German lager yeast, bready malt and some dry hopping. Flavour is extremely hoppy for an alt, with piney dry hopping and bready malt. Quite astringent on the finish. Well-made avant garde alt beer.
