I believe this one was courtesy of Elric73. If not, thank you to whoever gave me the chance to try this gem.
Poured into chalice glass.
A. brown with white head, not much retention or lacing.
S. Wonderful smell. Caramel, Dark fruits, plum maybe, and a slight alcohol smell. Amazing
T. Dark fruitiness is prominent. Plum and fig possibly. Caramel and alcohol linger in the background. alcohol comes out a little better as it warms.
M. medium body with a good carbonation to it.
D. Drinkability is good for a 9% abv. Not a chugger But would be wonderful for a cold night of relaxation
Wonderful representation of the style. This made me want to find more in the style. GI hasn't let me down yet

Picked up a 12 ounce bottle from the local bottle shop (took a try on a 2013... thought it could handle the age well)... not expecting be knocked out but wanting to give another Goose Island a try. Poured into my tulip glass. Nothing tremendous on appearance... unfiltered (that's ok), 1/2 finger of head was gone quickly, interesting mahogany hue. The aroma was awesome... raisins and dark fruit, apples or pears, molasses, and of course, Belgium. Aside from the presence of alcohol in the taste, all of the aromas were strong in the flavor profile. Not a ton of the 'funk', and overall a great flavor balance. Velvety mouthfeel... one of the most enjoyable I have tried for mouthfeel. Overall, this was excellent... great balance to this beer, and a pleasant surprise. As a big IPA and stout guy, before long I might be drawn to more of the Belgian styles... pick one up.
