Cask on tap at Clybourn original Goose Island brew pub.
A-Dark brown with ruby highlights. Clear with a very weak head.
S-Heavy on the toasted barley malt. Rich cocoa aromas.
T-Like the aroma. Tastes the way I like my brown ales.
M-Medium bodied. Of course it's low on the carbonation given it's storage vessel.
O-A big roasty chocolately ABA. Very solid brew.

Devastatingly dark for a brown ale, little light can creep through. A corn yellow head rises nicely.

Smokey, nutty, sweet. It smells like autumn.

The nuttiness and malt sweetness are there from the nose, but the smokey flavor comes through with a bitter that comes through with the hops, but almost taste like an espresso.

This is where I think most brown ales fail, and this one does a good job by not lingering to long. The carbonation is crisp and adequate.

One of the best brown ales I have had, and it is largely due to the bitter hop balance at the end.

Served in a nonic pint glass at the Clybourn brewpub.

The Pre-Gold Box Excursion continues with another cask offering. This one pours a clear ruby-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, coffee, nuts, and maple syrup. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some notes of molasses and chocolate syrup. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light carbonation and a consequently smooth feel. Overall, this was a tasty, beefy brown ale, one I wish I could have more of on a regular basis.

Single finger off white head on a deep amber and brown body with red tinged of light getting through. Some lacing. Aroma is light with mostly toasted malts, hazelnut and cocoa. Flavors are similar but more pronounced with a toasted caramel malt base, hazelnut, cocoa, burnt toast and wood. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very flavorful and drinkable. Definitely a beer you can have several of without it getting old.
