330ml bottle with no freshness date. Does comes with a goat necklace though!

Pours dark brown in color with a tan colored head that stood about a half of an inch tall. Has since settled to a rather thin and spotty lace with minimal head retention and lacing. Truth be told, this looks an awful lot like a glass of Pepsi.

Sure don't smell like it though! Big nose full of bready malts, molasses, a hint of soy sauce with a touch of smokiness.

Taste is full flavored and malt driven up front. There is some bitterness towards the middle, but it's just enough to add to the overall flavor of the beer. Doesn't get in the way of the malts which are obviously the star of the show. Smooth with a slight smokey finish.

Medium (almost full bodied) ale. A bit chewy with moderate carbonation.

I've had a fair amount of Double Bocks now, and this one tops the list. Only Smooth Hoperator comes close, but this is obviouly the more traditional of the two.

Morey's Bottom Line: I've had this one before, but it had been a while. I won't wait this long again. Very good fall beer too....IMO. If you're a fan of malty beer, this is a must try.
