look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
A: Murky cider color with touches of sediment meandering. Fragment of a head that I hope doesn't affect the mouthfeel due to low carbonation. Its barely holding a ring around the glass, if that.
S: Lots of candi sugar. Raisins, apricot and old caramel. Nice.
T: Flavors of carmelized malts, dried plums, Belgian yeast and an interesting wash of bitterness towards the end. Warmth from the alcohol begins immediately. Bit of a cloying aftertaste.
M: Thin and watery with prickles on the front center of the tongue.
D: Ehh. I expected more. Not as bold and robust of a flavor as I had hoped for. I felt that it was dialed back a bit.

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.
