4.19/5 rDev +5.8%
Appearance: Very dark chocolate syrup. Great lacing. I can't believe this is a lager.
Smel: Clean caramel.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Coffee and molasses. Good combination of malt and roast. Extremely clean mouthfeel.
Overall: A mouthfeel so good you won't believe it's a lager.

The Dark Traveler from Goose Island was on tap at our local bar and grill. The beer poured a hazy black with tan head that laced with every sip. The smell included roasted malt with subtle hop freshness. The taste followed the scent closely. The lighter ABV made the beer sessionable and the rich taste made it seem fuller in body than it actually was. Overall this is a decent beer....not my favorite style, but worth a try.

T: Dark caramel. Mild sweetness. A good bit of nuttiness and some dark fruit. Dark syrup on the back end.
M: Medium bodied, creamy, smooth. Virtually no bitterness.

Served in a shaker pint glass at WhirlyBall - Vernon Hills.
Sittin' down, enjoying some NBA playoff action, absorbing the unique WB atmosphere, and drinkin' some Goose. This stuff pours a dark midnight sienna topped by a finger of sandstone foam. The nose comprises clove, brown sugar, maple syrup, toasted malts, and a hint of flowers. The taste brings in more of the same, though the syrup comes through a bit sweeter, a bit of nuttiness is added, and a mild and vague fruitiness enters into the equation near the finish. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, an enjoyable and highly drinkable brew. This is the only Fulton and Wood offering I don't know the backstory for, so I'm not sure what twists the guys put on the traditional Munich dunkel, but this stuff is good times, indeed.
