Served from chilled 12 oz bottle into chilled nonic glass.
Murky brown color with off white foamy head. Trace amount of carbonation bubbles dancing in the glass.
Aromas of roast malts, caramel and Worcestershire sauce.
Sadly, the taste followed the nose painfully close. Good mouth feel and decent carbonation for a beer of this strength. Everything else however was not appealing. What does goose island brew this thing with; soy sauce?! It has an unpleasant taste of heavy molasses. My local beer monger noticed I enjoyed the taste of festivity ale and recommended sixth day as a better version of festivity. He was way off! I don't know if the flavor changed because the bottle he sold me was a 2012 vintage. Good thing this brew is no longer in production. Awful!

Pours out a hazy, medium-dark brown with some orange around the edges. Small light tan head sticks around for a very long time as a thickish film. No lace left behind, though.
Smell is rich, malty, whiskey, dark fruits. Ok, a little off style, more dubbel than brown, but a phenomenal nose.
Taste is just what you would expect, malt, whiskey soaked dark fruits with a hint of hops and some floral.
Almost full bodied, lightly effervesced, warming, slightly drying at the finish and so delicious I wish they hadn't stopped making it. :(
