This pours a medium brown color with a foamy, beige head. The aroma is very malty with some spices. The taste is pretty good as it’s not too strong or too weak. It’s slightly sweet with malts and caramel as well brown sugar. It has a little bit of a robust taste as well. This makes for a pretty good winter brew!

Red-amber. Small, white head. Aroma: Grains, rye, malt. Flavor: Multi-grain bread, rye, hops. Grainy finish.
When I think of beers with a grainy taste, I think of some of the worst beers on the shelf. This one is decent though nothing great, just drinkable.

Pours dark brown. Nose is a bit metallic and otherwise malty. Total malt bomb and a little hot. A pretty middle of the road beer for Goose Island but winter appropriate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep mahogany with lots of toffee and caramel on the nose. Also a bit of roasted delicious malts. The taste is sweet and spicy with notes of rye as well. Finishes a bit bittersweet like fine dark chocolate. A very enjoyable beer

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, good head, lots of lacing, medium body. First sip is bitter and reminds of toasted dark rye bread. While rye does not last long, bitterness does. Easy and enjoyable to drink in cold weather. Pretty good.
