A warm caramel with three fingers worth of khaki head. Large amount of caramel malt in the smell with raisins, cherries, and banana fruity sweetness. Getting some rum notes in the smell as well. Taste is similar to the smell, caramel and toffee with banana and cherries. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall a really nice representation of the style, very enjoyable.

Among the most complex tastes in the beer world, German-style weizenbocks seem to captivate the palate with a new set of flavors, balances and textures with each and every sip. Victory demonstrates this abundance of tastes in all its malt-forward, fruity and spicy glory.

Somewhat murky in its pour, its rust-stained hues are garnet and mauve. Its rich froth is rocky and meringue-like before faltering halfway down the glass. With bubbles popping, the nose fills with candied malt, spice cake, red wine, earthy fruit and pepper. Its sweeter taste is bready, sweet and decadently rich.

As the fruit and dense malt mingle upon the palate, the culmination comes to a head as fruitcake with notions of dried apple, banana, red grape, fig, raisin, plum and prune. With new flavors pronouncing with each sip, a follow up of clove, fresh-cracked peppercorn, vanilla, mint and wine acidity balances the malt and fruit with nearly even-keel precision.

Rising alcohols frame the finish, giving a spiced rum character to the already variant beer. Warm, tangy and peppery- the waining moments are alive with a sultry savory taste that linger deep in finish; making this ale a slow and patient session rather than a refreshing or drinkable option.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

Deep classic bronze colored body. A good but not overly amount of rising carbonation from the bottom, extremely fine through a crystal clear body. Head is bleach bright white, but with a very tight and thick incredible creamy looking body. Big three finger soap retention, with a dolloped whipped cream top. A big aggressive IPA, a winner.

What a fascinating hop angle. Incredilby woody and spicy herbality notes on this brew. Spruce and Christmas tree, even smokey. Subdued malt sweetness, but the hop angle is just fascinating, dry, burnt, smoked wood, airy… wonderful.

Palate hits with all the aroma and a bigger love. Nice Juice angle hinting of some big citrus like fruit and juice. Woody notes finish with a nice controlled bitterness that feels like sandal or balsam like wood character. Crisp finish, a big coating palate but with a much lighter body than anticipated. Flavors still come creeping through nicely on the palate.

A great well rounded classic Sierra IPA brew, showcasing this hop real nicely. Very enjoyable.

Appearance: Cloudy amber orange. 1 finger foamy off white head
Aroma: Banana, malt, some scattered red fruits. You can definitely pick up the wheat.
Taste: Great smooth flavor. Notes of cloves, honey, wheat, toast, brown sugar.
Mouthfeel: Foamy and expansive. The texture really compliments the taste.
Overall an enjoyable experience. Very drinkable for 8.7 ABV!
