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.

I have to admit being charmed by the appearance of this bottle with its rustic goats hugging/dancing with a big glass of beer. Clean, classic graphics and the little white plastic goat dangling by a red thread looped around the longneck make smile. It's all so kitschy I feel like I ought to hate it, but I just can't bring myself to do that.

Anyway, the neat little package is opened and poured into a goblet, yielding a clear ruby-brown body capped with a thick, creamy beige lid of fine, fine bubbles with rocky patches that leaves a bit of lacing.

Smell is rich and tangy malty with a toasted nut and honey note.A touch of wheaty molasses emerges as the drink warms.

Taste is chocolatey with a thick, chewy-sweet, malty breadiness that is at once brown sugary and earthy. A fine dry, yeasty edge and just a touch of dark, roasty bitterness keeps the drink from crossing the line from 'sweet' to 'cloying'. A rich starchy note of grain fills in the spaces.

Slick with only the barest of carbonation, the drink is smooth and very drinkable.
