Beer Review: St. Victorious Doppelbock

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.

  1. Haven’t had this beer yet. Came along the same issues when trying Victory’s Storm King Stout as well. Never seemed to hit the right balance but still good. Tis the season for Dogfish Head Red & White if you can find any left in your area. That’s always a favorite of mine this time of year.

    I like the “couch…crime spree…” line.
