3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear medium brown in color with a solid white head. Aroma of caramel and maple syrup. The taste is of Carmel, and malt. Has a bitter finish. I like it and its a solid choice, but for Goose Island I feel like they could have made it better.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Deep brown pour with a thick creamy head. Aroma of toffee, dried fruit, a little chocolate. Taste is pretty heavy malt at first, then some breadiness and a little caramel. Dry finish. Mild is definitely the operative word here.

A good beer, although I rarely drink it when the highly superior Christmas Ale is available. Dark, roasty malts with raisins and bread as advertised. A slight coffee bitterness and decent balance of hops.

The pour is a dark brown with a white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is toffee heavy with some malt note standing out. The taste is light and creamy up front with the rye standing out in somewhat of a bitter ending.
