This was surprisingly light. The mouthfeel was at once unexpectedly creamy and unexpectedly watery (as opposed to viscous or sticky), I guess sort of like a really skim milk. The main flavor I got on the palate was mild caramel and something a step beyond that, such as molasses. Got a bit of metallic taste. I didn't get much of an aroma. Overall it was very drinkable and enjoyable. I'm always surprised when something so dark comes off so light and delicate.
EDIT: OK second time I had it, also from the bottle, I got this (better):
A - dark ruby, decent head that takes a while to dissipate and winds up as a lingering white film
S - very yeasty and malty like a bowl of breakfast cereal
T - same yeast and malt from the nose, somewhat sweet, barely metallic, boozy in a friendly way, nice warm alcohol fumes from the back of the throat
M - thicker and smoother than water, round and soft with just a hint of carbonation tingle
O - Hello, I'm Malt Guy; I like this a lot.

The bottle is so us usual and beautiful, I had to try it. Poured from a bottle into a Pilsner, at a temperature between the fridge and room temp. Color is a crystal clear strawberry red with the slightest brown tinge when held up to intense light. Thin, tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, with roasted malt and caramel sweetness, with mild floral hops. Flavor is again yeasty, roasted malt, toffee sweetness, with a slightly piney finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin, and a bit foamy. This is a style that I do not understand (doppelbock), so I am rating it just as an enjoyable brew and experience. On that basis, I will say it is a very good to outstanding lager, well worth sampling. And this one has a bear, not a goat on the label.
