I had this right after the Night Stalker, and while I thought it to be good, Night Stalker was a very tough act to follow. This beer struck as me being similar, but lighter and with significantly less hoppiness.

It pours black, with decent head. Aroma was dark and roasty with a good amount of chocolate and nuttiness. Seemed more reminiscent of a Porter to me than anything else. Flavor was really rather sweet and offered more roastiness, but again, seemed mild following the Night Stalker. Mouthfeel was pretty light.

Not bad.

I had this on-tap at the brewery.

Cask at Goose Island - Clybourn. Served in a snifter. This batch was listed at 10%.

A - A half finger of persistent tan foam that settles to a near solid cap and collar. Nice spotty lacing, Dark brown with transparent ruby highlights. Good looking cask brew.

S - Cocoa and nuts, light floral and piney hops, rum-soaked dark fruits. There's a lot of fusel alcohol in the nose, which is distracting and quite unfortunate.

T - There's an unfortunate touch of earthiness, wood, and cardboard, particularly in the finish - perhaps this has been on cask for too long. Biscuit and cocoa malts, and thankfully much better hidden booze - nowhere near as hot as it smells. Maybe a touch of spice. There's some lingering bitterness as well.

M - Smooth, creamy, medium body, with obviously lower carbonation. There's a little bit of warming after a half glass, but nothing out of line with a 10% brew.

D - Thanks to the texture and the well-hidden ABV in the taste, this is actually pretty easy drinking. It just tastes kind of stale/old. I'd like to try this on-tap again to see how different it is - I had a taster a few months ago and I don't remember the same amount of dirt/earth flavor.

on cask at the Clybourn brewpub. pours a deep chocolate brown with amber highlights ad two fingers of rich and thick tan head. excellent retention and no lacings.

aroma is a rich mix of chocolate and nutty notes with a sharp alcoholic note alongside smooth roasted malts.

taste is of caramel and chocolate malts along with a base of alcoholic sharpness and a touch of dry hops on the back end. the nutty note from the aroma is drowned out by the hops on the back end.

mouthfeel is full bodied and super smooth. probably the only evidence of cask conditioning.

drinkability is decent. overall, this is so rich that it loses much of its 'cask' allure. that being said, it is still smooth and well rounded. cheers!
