Whew! This is one helluva beer. This doppelbock has a malt profile unlike anything I have ever tasted. One of the most complexly balanced flavors I have ever had the pleasure of tasting and without question the best doppelbock I have gotten my hands on. The profile begins with a smooth hit of tangy molasses, but directly before that flavor gets to be too much, the profile shifts to a great hit of hop bitterness and a twinge of alcohol. In addition I got a bit of what I think may be coriander, and it was all wrapped up beautifully with a harsh smoke note and a beautiful caramel coffee finish. It is not often I find doppelbock, but when I do I snatch up every bottle I can get my hands on.

Plastic goat hangs around the neck of the bottle. Brown body, tan head, not the best retention. Toasty malts, bready aroma. Smells slightly sweet, not pungent enough.
Toasty, sweet malts; deliciously creamy body; finishes dry. An enjoyable beer that's quite good for the style, but definitely doesn't deserve a spot in the Top 100.
