After last week’s success with the Troegenator Doublebock, I decided to try a different one, this one the St. Victorious by Victory.
This one…not such a big fan. It’s a good beer: very sturdy tasting, kind of bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. It’s not leadheavy and while it tastes a little bit belgiany, it’s not enough to turn me off from it.
Really, it’s just not what I’ve been to lead to expect of a Doppelbock. Which is to say, it’s not on the sweet side, like eating a beery chocolate bar. It tastes like a Killian or a Guinness: kind of bitter, not too complex, no real wow to it. It’s a dependable tasting beer with a bit of kick to it too. It’s the kind of beer you would call to help you move a couch, not the kind of beer you’d call to go on a crazy crime spree.
I give you a B St. Victorious, for your dependability.
