11.2 ounce bottle, freshness dated June 9, 2007.

Pours a beautiful dark reddish brown - it occurs to me that without the thick head and the goat "toy" I'd probably have neighbor kids trying to steal sips of my "cola". Nice clarity. Head is light brown with impressive creamy thickness and retention. Decent lacing as well.

Nose is lighted roasted/carmelized maltines and brown sugar. No hops noted, but a little of the alcohol strength is.

Taste is as I remember it - the best doppelbock I've had. Fruits not present in the aroma explode into the mouth along with the nice bready flavor. Nice balance of caramel and plum/berry sweetness with a somewhat drying and bittering finish.

Creamy full-bodied smoothness abounds. Carbonation relatively light. Always have to force myself to drink this slowly enough to enjoy it, as I never seem to have enough around.

Very drinkable. On the rare wonderful occasion when I have more than one, it IS quite filling after a while.
