COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This strong Brown Ale is quickly becoming a new Goose Island favorite. Seven different malt varieties are used to give this beer it’s sweet complexity and round body. Lightly hopped for balance, this pint is the perfect accompaniment to a fine cigar.

Excellent as brown ales go, though I’m not sure how true it is to the style: there’s a good deal of hopping here (which was pleasant) and some nice roasted malt flavors, without being as sweet as other brown ales.

Dark brown body tan head. Little lacing. Cola vanilla toffee aroma with earthy notes...damp leaves. Sweet cola vanilla flavor with a nice bitter caramel backdrop. Feels light on the palate. Lightly carbonated but what is there is sharp. Finish unpleasant lasting bitter metallic flavor...maybe some masa in there as well...burnt tortilla? A light mess of a brown on the sweet side.

On tap at clybourn. Poured a dark brown with an amber hue. Lots of malts on the nose with a slight nuttiness. Malty taste with very, very mild hops. Interesting brew that might benefit from more of a punch.

Much darker than I expected...more of a stoutish feel, but still kind of light bodied. Lots of carmel like the other GI brown ales. Pretty good.
