BEER REVIEW #50
Paid $6.49 for a 6-pack...
The appearence is alright; it's an almost black base with a medium dark caramel colored head, good retention and average lacing... The aroma of this was the surprise of this beer, likely roasted malts was the main smell, the rest was just pleasent.
The taste is above average; a good blend of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and that's about it. The mouthfeel is good except from the initial moment the beer hits your throat, it's a little harsh in that aspect, but other than that it was good. The drinkability is respectable with the mellow Goose Island signature taste at hand, and an ABV of 5.0%, it's good stuff!
Final Thought: I was a little disappointed overall, based on high expectations, but this is still some pretty good stuff, especially for the price!
