Probably the best of these Goose Island beers.
Pours rich black ... sludgy evil looking, just a tad bit of dark tan foam.
Smells like chocolate, caramel ... fudge? ... more vanilla than I expected, molasses, and more vanilla. Smells pretty good. Bourbon is surprisingly hidden.
Taste is sublime. Just fantastic. The vanilla adds nuance to a rich sweet and dark chocolate base, there's a ton of caramel-y sweet malt with molasses and brown sugar mixed in. This is really an epic tasting beer. Is that coconut? The bourbon really takes a backseat here, but contributes some alcohol warmth.
Mouthfeel is decently thick, but not a showstopper. This is a really great beer. Thanks Dave!
