The only authority for all things beer…

St. Victorious

7.6% ABV. Doppelbock from Victory Brewing in Philadelphia, PA. One of my favorite American doppelbocks even the legendary beer writer and aficionado, Michael Jackson, agreed. 12oz bottle poured into dimple glass. Pours a slightly hazy, medium amber-brown color; khaki-colored head with patchy lacing. Pleasant nougat and chewy caramel in the aroma, with a hint of lively citrus and some dried red fruits; very clean and generous without being sticky. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: there’s definitely a bit of viscosity upfront, but not to the tune of 8.5%; plenty of dried red fruits, caramel, and toffee; resists being too weighty and forward, opting instead for a clean yeast character and a surprising level of drinkability; well-made and tasty. Medium, doughy and bready malt finish; some lingering caramel and a touch of bitterness.
theBeerAuthority: B+
