A: Pours a very dark brown color with a two finger chocolate head that dissipates quickly.
S: Bourbon up front. Hints of dark fruits, vanilla, malt, toffee, and chocolate make this a complex beer.
T: Bourbon followed by dark fruits. ABV is well hidden.
M: Very sticky, heavy, and thick on the palate.
O: A very good variant by Goose Island. Very complex. Perfect sipping beer for the winter months.
Serving type: bottle

Another outstanding brew from Goose Island. What it lacks in appearance it makes up for in taste, twofold. Barleywines, nowadays, seem to lack that barley presence in favor of the coffee/chocolate tastes. This is not one of those. The head lacing are virtually nonexistent. So what? If you have no fear of the dark you will feel right at home here.
Serving type: on-tap
