Bought a 4pk from Southtown Beverages in Rochester, NY on Saturday Nov 29th, 2013.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Nonic, served at cellar temp.
Appearance: Lignite Brown with a thick mocha head that recedes to a thin film.
Aroma: Perhaps the best beer I have ever smelled; rich, luscious caramel, butterscotch, some alcohol esthers.
Mouthfeel: weightless, ethereal
Taste: Figs coated in chocolate, molasses, vanilla, Bourbon
Notes: the closest I have been to beer perfection
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
