Pours a deep amber color with a thick fluffy off white head that remains throughout most of the beer.

The scent was of roasted caramel malt, nice fruit presence.

The taste was of very strong malt, caramel, toffee, bread, sweet fruit, and light notes of alcohol.

Full body, smooth and soft, low to moderate carbonation.

This was an excellent presentation of the style, very flavorful and easy to drink. I will have to add this to one of my favorites from Vicotry.

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.
