12 oz single, bottled on 012306, also 0902 on the label, poured into my St. Bernardus glass
Apours light brown raison, almost solid with almost no head at all, just a thin fizzy sheet, gone almost instantly, spotty lacing is produced as I drink
Smalts and dark fruits, alcohol is hidden well, some roasted nut tones and a faint whiff of chocolate
Tvery heavy sweet malty flavor, finishes with some light fruitiness, very good. The alcohol is not quite as hidden in the taste it really warms as it goes down
Mslick and slippery, medium bodied, good carbonation
Dits good, Id have it again, much sweeter than I expected it to be.

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.
