Looks like weak coffee or maybe strong tea. A slightly murky brown with some red tinting. Minimal head that has excellent retention and lacing.
Smells amazing! Sweet malty goodness with some yeast scents thrown in. Sugary caramel/toffee notes. Raisins and brown sugar and figs.
Sweetness of raisins on the tongue with caramel and roasted malts. Light splash of cherries and figs. A nice touch of spiciness.
This feels good in the mouth, though it's a little bit light, for my taste. Nice and smooth.
Relatively easy to drink this one, though the 9% alcohol will keep you from pounding 'em down too quickly.

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.
