On-tap at the Clybourn location.

A: Mahogany in color, with ruby slivers poking through under closer inspection next to a light source, and virtually no head. Looks dangerous.

S: Little to no smell, with just the right amount of sweetness and with only a tinge of nuttiness under very close inspection. Very muted, yet effective.

T: If this is a brown ale, then I'm Oprah Winfrey. Pretty much an English barleywine, very hot, but still it was of the candy-coated variety. I didn't get the same nuttiness I got from the nose, more like caramel and toffee. Complex!

M: Sticky icky, but in a good way. That really slowed me down and allowed me to appreciate the subtleties. Virtually no lacing whatsoever.

O: Pretty remarkable high octane entry for sure. They really need to bottle this one as part of a reserve series.

On-tap at the Clybourn pub. Pours a very dark mohagony brown color with a small head. Nose contains a bouquet of dark fruits, including sweet plums, caramel malts, and a touch of tobacco. Taste starts off with caramel malts that's move on to the dark fruit flavors that were picked up in the nose. Finishes with a nice bitter pone hop flavors mixed in with sticky caramel malts. Mouthfeel is a little thin an somewhat watery. Overall, this is a really nice imperial brown ale.

Reviewing the Extremely Naughty Goose from Goose Island Brewing Company out of Chicago, Illinois. This is a recent re-brew of a long-retired offering.
Score: 92

Tap pour served in the Clyborn Goose Island Brewpub and enjoyed on 11/16/12. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: The color is dark syrup, reminisce of King Henry, with strip of brown highlight atop the body. Served with a thin layer of beige head that settles to thin ring around glass. Below average lacing, average retention. 3.5/5

Smell: Roasted malt, chocolate, and faint coffee. Toffee and mixed nuts too. Faint honey-like sweetness. 4/5

Taste: Roasted malt, nuts, chocolate malt and cocoa. Toffee too. Light caramel malt and booziness in the finish. Very malty, but in a good, complex way. The flavors really linger on the palate. This beer i bold in flavor with a little boozy kick. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, low carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel with moderate stickiness. Very malty! 5/5

Overall: An excellent malt-heavy beer, and one of the best brown ales I have had the pleasure to enjoy. I am very glad that Goose Island brought this one back!

Recommendation: Seek this one out if you get a chance, though be forewarned that the sticker price is a bit high. I imagine this beer would age well for some period of time, but have no clue how the 2006 bottle release is holding up.

Pairings: Beer bread with honey butter.

Cost: $10 for a 10 oz tap pour.
