Picked up one of these at a local bar and took home to rate. For me, Goose Island has some really awesome beers, but they definitely have their share of misses in my opinion. Very eager to try this one.
A - Pours as a deep reddish rusty color with the slightest of heads. The color alone is quite impressive to me.
S - Fruity smell, grapes and maybe some apricot. Nothing overpowering for sure. You really have to get your nose in there.
T - Bitter fruity flavor to and fruity throughout all the way through the finish. Hint of pepper on the tongue, not too much however.
M - Low-to-medium carbonation, but a full-bodied beer with a dry finish which makes you smile.
O - This is a very solid beer and a hit for Goose Island. I'd definitely recommend it to a friend and would love to have another.

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.
