Once again, Goose Island uses its Imperial Red Ale - like the one used in the Pappy van Sherry - but this time they aged the beer for 6 months in a Robert Craig Cabernet French oak barrel. the use of French Oak gives this beer a very unique vanilla essence, along with a dry roasted finish.

Tap at Blind Tiger Alehouse. Deep amber beer with a thin white head. Aroma is loaded with vanilla and a lot of toasted oak. A soft sweet vineous character. A soft sweet bourbony character. Chewy and vanillaish with a bit of plummy, jammy, wine flavour. Sweet and fruity with a great combination of oak, vanilla and caramel. Another really tasty oak-aged brew.

Ran into this on tap at the Hop Leaf. Pours a dark amber color. Way too much alcohol almost like a scotch ale but with rubbing alcohol. Notes of red wine Mexican sugar orange rind and tart cherry are apparent but the result is unbalanced in my opinion.

Tap at Hop Leaf. No mistake: this an unusual-tasting beer. But the red wine really comes through. Not so much the red ale though. Sour malt, oak, and what was described to me as ’lighter Samichlaus’ are the flavors.

Tap at the Blind Tiger Goose Island Event: Pours a deep burgundy/amber color. Huge boozy nose- tons of brandy, vanilla, oak, lots of dark sweet fruits and a maple note. Slick boozy body. The flavor is huge and sweet. Notes of maple, vanilla, boozy brandy, plummy hints and a later marshmallow character. Despite it’s huge, boozy body and sweet, simple flavor, it remains somewhat drinkable.
