Victory Java Cask
2016 rendition. Boozy aroma. Coffee, dark chocolate and bourbon. Getting the job done. Smooth drinker for a big brew. Lots of heat up front, malt, bitter from hop? or the coffee, dark roasted flavor. Excellent balance. Feels more like 9% than 14+. Nice.

Victory Sour Monkey
What a step down from the original. It’s definitely sour but not really enjoyable. The sour takes away the spices that make the standard so delicious. Bummer.

Victory Kirsch Gose
Bottle. Pours a clear orange-pink with a thin white head. Aroma of cherries, sour fruits, sour wheat malt. Flavor of sour cherry, sour fruits, tart wheat malt. Plenty of cherry here, sour, light palate. A bit fruitier than most goses, very tasty. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Victory Kirsch Gose
Bottle. Light hay for the malt, no noticeable hops, faint musty for the yeast, with notes of cherry and vinegar. Head is small, frothy, pastel pink, with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light rose. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately to heavily acidic and acetic, then finishes moderately acidic, salty, and a has a faint lingering sweetness. Palate is light, watery, with a lively carbonation and finishes tart. Great beer. Definitely not your standard Gose, the cherry addition sees to that.

Victory Kirsch Gose
Draft at Bigelo’s. Only a half pour as the keg blew. A pink hued head is substantial and the beer under it has some amber and is clear. This brings cherry and some berry. Wheat and coriander. It is not quite a classic version and is cleaner than most.

Victory Blackboard Series #5 Cream Ale with Cold Brewed Coffee
They get points for originality. Quite creamy with coffee notes throughout. Then again maybe too creamy, almost milky. Not the way beer should taste.

Victory Prima Pils
It is a lot harsher than I thought it would be, the hops bring a thud of dryness to the palate. Does have a hint of sweetness but the rasping edges of the hops are the central theme.

Flaske. Flot orange diset øl der overraskede mig meget, da jeg havde taget en tår fra flasken og forventede en mørk øl selvom der stod cream ale på flasken, duften er tydelig kaffe det samme som smagen. Sødlig og lækker. Fin øl.

Clear yellow colour with thin soapy head. It’s a typical lager pilsener. Perhaps with slightly more pronounced hop notes. Fairly clean and fresh. Decent stuff.

Bottle. Slightly hazy amber color with white head. Aroma is acetone, wood, oak barrel funk, vanilla. Taste is chocolate, oak funk, cherries, acetone. Medium carbonation. Smells as though it’s completely mouth-puckering, but then isn’t. Nice enough.

Victory Java Cask
Nice brew. What generous head. Yep, nice brains son. Nice mellow sweetness and alcohol. The bittersweet coffee flavor lingers a bit but adds to the balance here. Malty chocolate and bourbon with a hint of cocoa, mild vanilla and spice. The bourbon dances about with the carbonation. Victory, well done.

My second beer at the shep as I wait for my Buffalo Chicken Spring Rolls with an aroma of a soft pretzel in the air. Really liked this cream ale, tastes how I like my coffee. Aroma is amazing and taste is good, once again patting myself on the back for a job well done in ordering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Victory 21st Birthday IPA
Flaska från SB. Gyllengul, lätt disig mörkt gyllene färg med högt vitt skum. Ganska djup söt fruktig doft av välmogen mango, ananas och zestig och juicig citrus. Smaken är snarare torr, gräsig och stramt citruszestig med en resinoljig och aningen tvålig munkänsla. Ganska besk med långt skalvitebesk eftersmak. Saknar lite av fruktigheten från doften för att lyfta men helt ok.

Victory 21st Birthday IPA
Misty blonde with a billowing white head. Standard longneck with a tacky label. Very nice, aromatic, floral, fruity aroma - fairly sweet and zesty. Drier than it smells, sturdy bittering, kumquat notes, fizzy. A bit pithy. Lightis, fizzy mouthfeel. Finishes out with some starfruit, grapefruit, kumquat. Blew the shift after the bouquet. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Victory Sour Monkey
Clear, effervescent brew, as I would expect of a Golden Monkey variant. Standard brown longneck, trippy label. Tart, somewhat sweet, cereal aroma that wasn’t particularly inviting. Bitter, a bit astringent, warming, moderately sweet, woody, a bit wild, if that’s Brett it’s not overdone. Slightly heavy body, slippery mouthfeel. Overall the ABV was a bit of a wrestling match - like with port or cough syrup - and wasn’t well integrated. Technically, meh. I didn’t enjoy. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Victory Sour Monkey
I’ve never had a sour before; that being said, I’m confused. On one hand, had someone handed me a glass of this and told me it was from a freshly opened bottle of Korbel Brut champagne, I would have believed it. On the other hand, had I sipped it out of a pint glass, I would have believe that someone had possibly juiced an entire lime into my beer. Confusion aside, its good!

Victory Blackboard Series #5 Cream Ale with Cold Brewed Coffee
Bottle at Beer Hunters, Pori. Clear amber color, small steady white head. When poured, excellent fresh coffee aroma but it vanishes quickly. Then not so fresh coffee and malts. Light to medium-bodied. First sip .. cold coffee burst but later coffee is not so dominant. Sweetish maltyness. Low on hops. Tolerable.
