My. my, my the new brew house sure is kicking in Downingtown. This is one of my favorite beers Victory does. Just when you think it can't get any better, it does. According to Brewmaster Ron Barchet, the wet milling process is really great because the attenuation is going off the charts. Tthis years Saint B. is yet another example of a highly attenuated beer. It is considerably smoother than that of years past.
I suggest you let warm a little and then give a swirl or two to release the nose. The beer is especially bright and has a golden amber color. The carbonation holds up through the entire expereince with nice lace along the way.
The nose in my opinion has a trace of cinamon smelling malt character.
At 7.8 ABV you're kind of expecting someithin big to leap out at you when in fact it is so smooth with no alcohol burn whatsoever.
The taste is really good. I beleive the profile is mainly remindful of butterscotch and sweet ginger. Again, as it warms the spicier it gets which I think is a good thing.
I'm 6'3" tall and weigh close to 300# and two of these do me in. Wow.

On tap at The Owl House in Rochester, NY.
Pours a slightly cloudy light orange, with a small half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.
Smells kinda faint and weak, unfortunately. A little bit of grassy noble hoppiness, but not much else.
Tastes a little faint and uninspired, too. Some light grassiness, with not much noticeable malt flavor, other than some light cracker, and some light breadiness/doughiness. Some slight lager yeast. Just not a whole lot to get excited about here, unfortunately.
Light bodied, crisp mouthfeel, slightly watery.
A rare forgettable brew from Victory, I thought they would've knocked this one right out of the park.
