Bomber poured into chalice

Pours a copper, ruby rich brown. Clear with amazing strains of yeasts and carbonation. Half finger white foam lid.

Aroma of molasses, fig, prunes, raisins.

Taste of the deep rich fruits and licorice. Amazing.

Smooth mouthfeel , don't taste the 8% abv but! it is there

Great beer. Delicious, complex but not overwhelmingly so. Repeatable and worthy of stocking in your beer fridge.

Not the best but definitely not the worst! Quite strong and slightly sweet with
solid mouth feel. I would purchase again despite the fact that Goose Island is
now owned by a INTERNATIONAL BIG BROTHER BEER CONGLOMERATE! ;>}
