From 01/12/13 notes. Bought this in the RS in December, poured frm a 750ml bottle into my Bruery tulip.
a - Pours a dark brown color with a reddish tint, one finger of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Head leaves quickly.
s - Smells of slightly tangy blackberries and dark fruits, spices, yeast, fruity malts, and earthy notes. A bit weird and tangy but ok.
t - Tastes of tangy dark berries, chocolate, sweet dark fruits, spice, pepper, yeast, roasted malts, and earthy notes. Like the nose but with chocolate mixed in. Not better or worse, just different.
m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No heat, pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall a weird beer; not necessarily bad, but not good and realy not sure what they were going for. Kind of feel like they knew the name was "6 Geese-A-Laying" for the next Christmas beer so just used gooseberries for that reason and it didn't work out that great. Had after 5GR and neither was great; think their Christmas beers have really gone down hill.

Poured into a tulip glass a hazy medium brown with a tinge of amber,a sticky one finger head atop,wasn't a fan of the hazed murkiness to the color.Aromas have a lactic kick to them from the gooseberries to go along with mild spiced phenols and lemony notes.Again some lactic-like notes imparted from the gooseberries on the palate along with some clove spice with a hint of barnyard in the finish but not real strong.Not a bad beer,lightly acidic and somewhat refreshing even for its size.

Dark brown in color with a lot of haziness. There's a faint bit of off white head that covers most of the top of the beer. Brussels lacing. Dal malt is prevalent in the nose and a fruitiness that I assume is from the gooseberries. There's plenty of dark malt and caramelized dark candidate sugar in the front of the palate. I get a bit of tartness from the gooseberries to balance things out. The mouth is fairly carbonated and a bit syrupy. There's a bit of earthiness present in the fade either from the spiciness.
