Received this in a trade with Vancer a while back, thanks again Vance! Goat's Breath pours a deep cherrywood with a glass full of large quickly rising carbonation. A sudsy finger worth of off white head formed on the pour but quickly fell to a very thin skimming. With the small amount of head left it's hard to get any lacing. The body looks really good; unfortunately the head doesn't match up.

A sweetened nutty breadiness greets the nose right away. A light drizzling of caramel and toasted grains create a solid background. There's a syrupy sweetness deep in the aroma that's not quite maple syrup like but is along those lines. A little different then your usual bock but there's enough bready, nutty, and sweetness to keep it close.

Flavor follows the nose closely. Caramel sweetness starts things off before a sweet nutty breadiness takes over. Alcohol spiciness joins in mid-palate and lasts throughout actually adding some dryness on the finish. The caramel shows up again just before the swallow to go down with the ship. Goat's Breath is a decent bock.

Mouthfeel could use a touch more heft but I'm being picky and I tend to think that about a lot of bocks. Medium body that feels slightly watery on the sides of the tongue. The carbonation looks lively but doesn't show up much on the tongue. Finishes drier then expected.

This is an easy bock to put away. If I had a couple more bottles I would enjoy them tonight. The body keeps it easy drinking, the dryness I'm still on the fence about.

O'Fallon brews some good beers and some not so good beers. Goat's Breath is in the middle of the two. Goat's Breath is a decent beer that I would pick up every now and then but not too often. I guess I'm on the fence about this whole beer. It is a decent bock though and I wouldn't hesitate to turn one down.
