Victory Brewing – St. Victorius

Tasting – February 2011
Style: Doppelbock

Walking past the wine-tasting bar in Gary’s Wine in Wayne, I heard what I thought was the usual, “Would you like to taste some wine?”, but had to do a double take when I heard her say beer. The woman behind the bar realized that she had surprised me — and said “fooled you didn’t we”?. There’s something about an attractive woman offering to pour me a free beer (at least a sample) — so I certainly took her up on the offer. She had some Weyerbacher and Lagunitas, but I passed to try something I hadn’t had before — the tasting worked — however, I only invested in a single bottle for $1.99 after the tasting. I’m glad that’s all I plunked down. Has characteristics you’d like to see in a doppelbock. I got malty and a brandy-like warming when drinking it. It’s just a little shallow beyond that…80 points
