3.9/5  rDev -4.2%

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.

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!

Draft pour into snifter, Coopers, Scranton.

After drinking Aventinus for many years, this had humongous shoes to fill and didn't get it done.
Body was a bit thin, and the complexity was lacking. Wheat with a bit of plum and cherry, the drinkability was good and the alcohol
well hidden. Would definitely drink again, but won't seek out...
