Smoked Goosinator Doppelbock

750mL corked and caged affair – silk screened bottle. 2007 vintage, bottle conditioned.

Nice looking, brownish-red body in keeping with the style. Head is large and smoke colored (yellowish tinge). Head is a bit light and airy so it disappears very quickly. Very little lace.

Aroma is DISTINCTLY NOT smoked, which I suppose is a bit of a disappointment (hence the low score for aroma).

Mouthfeel is a little thin for me.

Mild smoke is the overwhelming taste. Not much Doppelbock flavor, but at the same time the beer seems to taste like I would imagine a smoked Doppelbock would! In that respect I suppose it is “good”.

Not really my cup of tea, but if you like smoked brews I think this would be an option.
