look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle. Marked 'Enjoy By Dec 17 2011'. Poured into a pint glass.

Clear dark sienna body with a half-inch of cream-colored head. Frothy and withstanding.

Smells of dark bready malts and fruits. Some yeast character. Hints of caramelized sugar and cold-press coffee. Not much aromatically from the hop additions.

Roasty sweet malts, like bread pudding. Some caramel that tastes like it comes with some age. The fruits are very ripe; oxidized apple flesh, raisins, and some fried banana. The malts are tried and true, big and bready with a rich sweetness. Balancing bitterness finishes on the swallow. This is a great homage to German brewing. Stands up to some of the best.

Very slick feel. Mild carb leaves the liquid feeling creamy and full. Drinks easily.

I stand by my German brewers with making my favorite Dopplebocks--Aventinus, Celebrator, Optimator. But, Victory did really well here. I would absolutely buy this again. A well-made example.
