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.
