2/3/16 Chicago (12 oz draft pour into snifter glass at Goose Island Clybourn Brewpub).Very dark rosy brown, thick pour, foam and carbonation. Chocolate, caramel and toffee aroma. Taste similar to aroma, with roasted coffee the predominate feature. Thin creamy texture and body, easy going down. Glad I picked this one to start the evening.

Served in a tulip glass at the Clybourn brewpub.

Why not go back for more...? This stuff pours a clear sienna topped by a finger or so of cream-tan foam. The nose comprises maple syrup, light molasses, rye bread, and brown sugar. The taste brings the bread to the fore, though everything else continues to swirl about as well...just kinda behind the bread and whatnot... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, though a touch on the bready side for my tastes, this is still a pretty solid d-bock. Good times.
