4.6/5  rDev +13%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into pint glass from 22oz bottle, tasting with some buddies. dark blackish brown like black coffee dark tan carbonation. Moderate amount of lacing. Very cool lable, nice job Goose Island.

Smells of deep roasted malts and light hop presence. Also some hints of chocolaty sweetness.

Very bold in taste, I'm liking this. Strong presence of scorched toffee and molasses but accompanied by smooth chocolate sweetness and pleasing hints of coffee. For a second, I'm feeling that the sweetness is a bit cloying, but then it rapidly disappates as it blends with the other flavors. ABV is warm but not overwhelming. Nice balance.

I like the way this brew coats the mouth but falls short of being thick and chewy. I'm ready for the next sip and want to continue enjoying it. Creamy milk chocolate mouthfeel but not sticky. Just the way I like it. I will be pursuing more of this.
