Pours apple cider brown. Perfectly cloudy and murky. The light tan head has uniform bubbles that dissapear quickly.
Smell is a little barnyard and banana bread. Barnyard blows off after a bit leaving some alcohol infused banana bread smell.
This is pretty yummy I think. A low 4.5, but definitely better than just a 4.0. More nutty banana bread and undisguised alcohol. It actually warms as it goes down.
Mouthfeel is soft and creamy as hell. Almost like drinking thick whipped cream.
If I wanted to get a quick drunk on, I'd reach for another. But most nights I'll pass for something else.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
