Even though I have seen this on the shelf and knew it was highly rated on the site, I hesitated to buy the beer, because of the dumb plastic goat hung around the bottles. That was a bad decision.
The beer pours a very dark, mahogany color with a tannish head that is very long lasting. There is some substantial lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma is great with a big malty smell and some hints of caramel and herbs.
The taste is the thing here, though. It is huge flavor of malt with a real sweetness hidden in it. There is also a hit of hops and yeast and an alcohol kick at the end.
This is incredible in the mouth. It is so creamy and smooth but it has a carbonated bubble to it as well. It is almost thick. I think that this may be the best German beer that I've ever had in a bottle. It is certainly the best Doppelbock.
I've actually come to like the little goat toy.

330ML bottle with no date, poured into my Troegs mug...
A - Dark muddy brownish/black color with a perfect one finger head and nice tan head. A sticky lace holds throughout consumption
S - Caramel and malts are predominant for me. Very good aroma that makes you crave it
T - Dark fruits, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and with a malty backbone. Absolutely perfect for the style
M - Smooth, medium body with a low carbonation. Ultra smooth finish
O - Doppelbocks aren't usually my thing but there's no way you can't appreciate how great this beer is. The 6.7% masks amazingly well. I could crush this beer so easily. The unique flavors meld perfectly together. This is absolutely world class and I'm kicking myself for continually passing it up time after time
