oversized wine glass
A- Pours a beautiful coppery orange color with a small off white head that fades quickly to a slight ring around the glass. Has visable particels floating through out.
S- fruity like banana, apricot, sugary like powder sugar tastes, biscuits. slightly boozy.
T- Strong alcohol presence, more of a balanced fruit, has a slight bitterness to the finish.
M- Medium mouth, smooth with a slight fizz
O- Interesting beer, had a lot more alcohol presence than some higher % beers that ive had. Gonna pick some more up and let it celler for awhile and see if it balances out. Has a good flavor, but the alcohol kinda of overpowers it for me at the moment. Think it has potential still.

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.
