3.78/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Looks like I just poured some cokle in my glass. Rich tan head.

S- Nothing overpouring, You really need to get your nose close in order to detect what is going on. Slight roast but more sweet scents, hard to detect as it is very faint.

T- WOW, taste is much more prevalent than the scent. A sweet beer which I was not expecting from such a dark beer. Sweet start and a peppery spicyness to finish.

M- Smooth and very light for such a dark body.

O- For as dark of beer as this was, I personally was not too sure on it but WOW, I was suprised with the taste. Great sweet and light flavor. I wish I could have smelt that, I am thinking of picking up a couple more bottles to cellar, has anyone else aged this?

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: I am surprised to see the blackness of this drink. Expected a golden farmhouse! Almost no light through and a bubbly dissipating head.

S: Not much at all here. If anything some straw and malt.

T: Very interesting. Smoke, some chocolate flavors, it's got a tartness to it that is in the background. Also some dark fruit, straw, funk, and slight bitterness.

M: Creamy as stated. Got a dry finish with the slightest bite of carbonation.

O: A pleasant surprise. This is unique and great for the style. It reminds me of a black lager with a funkiness to it. Good job Goose Island.
