Sampled from the tap at the Clyborn. Pours a clear deep ruby with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has a combo of sweet and earthy grains with a bit of booze and honey. Flavor has a bit of light fruit and sweet grains with a bread note coming out in the finish.

Tap @ Pracna (Minneapolis) during the holiday season 2009. Awesome beer! Dark brown pour, vanilla aroma pours out of the glass. Taste is creamy, vanilla, dark fruit, with an alcohol presence. Fantastic.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Poured draft on tap the the cybourne brewpub (chicago, il). Pours a very dark opaque blackish brown with nice brownish head that laces in a tulip. Aromas are very nice brown, slight nut, malty, nice sweetness with a touch of booze, brown sugar, and creamy sweetness. Initial is very welcoming, assertive malting with nice sweetness, nut, and nice balance with hopping to match. Finishes a little vinous, subtle dark fruits and carmel and brown sugar with a bitterness on the backend. A little thick.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 A: Very dark; nearly opaque through a 5 oz. tasting glass. Light brown sugar head with moderate retention. S: Sugary sweetness with residual fruit esters. The malt comes through under the fruits. Faint hop aroma. T: Quite sweet with the alcohol hitting the back of the throat. Hints of black licorice; greater presence of dark fruits and at least a little black cherry. Definite bite of alcohol. M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crispness on the tip of the tongue and a slight tingle on the way down. D: Can’t get enough--hard to stop and write between sips. My favorite offering from Goose Island yet. Other Notes: Had at the Wrigleyville location on 02.28.09. The menu there calls the beer "Extra Naughty Goose." From the menu: "A brown ale with a bite. An American interpretation of an English classic, with lots of domestic Tettnang and Cascade hops to complement the choclaty roasted malt character. Served in a tulip for $7.

Near brown color with a hint of cherry color when swirled in the glass. Heavy malt aromas with a mild fruit, especially berry background. It think I read that this had been aged on cranberries. Flavor start sweet with caramel and toffee, a slight blending of the fruit in the middle and a touch of spice in the finish and into the linger with just a bit of alcohol. Slightly warming. A nice winter warmer.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Gosh, I liked this--possibly the best beer of the 2009 Holiday season? Gorgeous aroma with raisins and a very floral bouquet. Vanilla and some alcohol, as a testament to the aging. Good, rounding flavors, luscious and warming. On tap at The Happy Gnome, St. Paul.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Cask at Clybourn. Poured a clear dark brown color with orange highlights. The head was thick, light tan, and creamy. Big malty aroma with plenty of diacetyl; caramel, vanilla, butter. Medium to full bodied, boozy, and slightly sweet. Very little carbonation from the cask. The flavor, like the aroma, was malt dominated. I tasted buttery caramel, toffee, alcohol, and a hint of coffee. Not bad, but not as good as I had hoped.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Draft at GI Clybourn. Pours a dark and thick brown with disappearing head. Nose is initially chocolate with sweet alcohol poking out. Taste is super rich and decadent, the alcohol sweetening the beer even more and making it feel slippery. I’m glad this has enough body to support the abv. Taste shows cherry skins, light chocolate notes and a clean, ambiguous bitterness. Interesting and another nice edition to the brown ale catalogue for GI. Nice.
