I had this on tap @ The Austin Untapped fest .! Wow; This is a Doppelbock brewed w/ smoked 2-row German malt from Bamberg. !!! What a nice smoke, smell with a med. mouth feel . I just love how dark roast brew keeps going & going !! with a long finish .!!
Great beer with BBQ...!!! If you get a chance try this great brew.!!!

Poured from a 64oz growler via Victory's taps. Pours a dark amber, can still see my fingers on the other side of the glass. Creamy foam with nice lacing. Smell is a bit smokey, with sweet bread and a touch of caramel. Taste is wonderful - smokey, toasted malt, sweet bread, caramel, Nilla wafers with a clean finish. Not too sweet - just right.
Victory rocks the hop styles for sure, but I have a new found love and admiration for their German styles! Zelt, Braumeister, Fest beer, St Victorious - all awesome!
