Thick brown appearance with a nice light brown head. A sweet, desert beer. Toffee, chocolate, and brown sugar. Nothing overwhelming and fairly well-balanced, but not something I would drink two in a row of... Tried with Nick and his friend in Chicago in 2012.

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.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - 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.

On tap at Clybourn brewpub. Color is dark brown with some reddish hues. Small tan head quickly dissipates to lace. Aroma has toffee, honey, raisins, chocolate, molasses and alcohol. Taste is sweet and a bit nutty with a boozy finish. Body is full with medium carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. A very satisfying dessert beer.

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.

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.

Wonderful beer. Pours an almost black brown with some amber hues. Mild tan head that fades to lace. Raisin and ripe apricot aroma. Roasty raisin sweet flavors with a coffee bitter finish. Full bodied and creamy.

Enjoyed on tap at GI Clybourn, served in a snifter. A: Pours a dark brown color with ruby highlights where the light hits. A tan head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring that leaves some soapy lace. S: Chocolate malt with a light roasted malt background and a nice hint of sweet booze. T: Big candied sugar sweetness with a nice mix of booze and chocolate malts. Nice roasted undertones with a little touch of honey and fruit. Nice toffee and nutty combination really round out a balanced taste. M: Medium bodied with a pretty full mouthfeel. Nice medium carbonation level with a little sweet kick to it. O: Very good. A little boozy and sweet, but it’s really good and I really liked it. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-19-2012
