Extremlely smooth taste, with just a bite of the Bourbon. I would like to try the Stout without the Bourbon to see the difference. You hardly notice the 13.8% ABV. Excellent around beer.

The first time I tried this beer I honestly didn't like it. I gave it another try a few weeks later and I must say that it was surprisingly good. Perhaps my senses were more "open" to discover and enjoy all the complexities of the various flavors.

The beer is very much black with almost no head.

Smells of banana, wheat, graham cracker, dough and mild notes of chocolate.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. Every sip I taste something different, very enjoyable experience. It can be both very sweet and somewhat bitter. It definitely is a beer that one must take their time with in order to fully appreciate it.

There was a lot of carbonation which definitely added to the beer.

Overall, this could be a beer that needs to be tried on more than one occasion in order to awake one's senses. Bravo Goose Island!
