Nice deep brown color with some ruby-red highlights when held up to the light. Off-white head quickly dissipates leaving some bubbles and nice lacing that's clinging well to the sides of the glass.
Smell is sweet. Vanilla & milk are most noticeable, smells almost like a milk stout tastes. Some caramel notes as well.
Malty, yeasty taste. Also malt taste that reminds me exactly of a malted chocolate milk shake or milk duds. Delicious and sweet, but not overpowering.
Mouthfeel is nice and medium bodied. Very decent carbonation and good texture in the mouth.
Drinkability on this one is fantastic. Very refreshing and approachable. Nothing overpowering with any of the flavors. A great, well-balanced beer.

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.
