Enjoyed this bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a cloudy brown hue with a thick, 2-finger, white head that slowly dissipates, leaves a nice trail, and ends in a solid lace.

S: Malty aroma with a dark fruit background mixed in with some caramel.

T: Dark fruit flavor with malty slightly tart middle and finishes on the smooth side.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Another excellent brew by Goose Island.
