3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was pretty solid, but also kind of average. Very creamy and smooth for a rye beer, I expected more robust spiciness. Goes down easy though to the point where I wouldnt mind having a few of these.

pours an amber color with nice white head. A good solid beer that taste a little fruity, but not overpoweringly so.
12 oz. bottle

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown color with a 1" head
very grain driven nose. Crackers and rye grains along with roasted malts, chocolate and some toffee as well
medium bodied, but lacking a bit in the flavor department. Mostly roasted malts, some coffee and grains. Very good smooth feel though. It doesn’t drop off at any point
A very good and drinkable beer. Tasty, but seems to lack a slight bit for me

I really enjoy a beer thats taste is as the aroma advertised. The flavors unfold in layers starting with malt then caramel changing into a mild coffee and rye then hops finish quick and exciting.

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.

Draft. Creay head that had nice retention, off white/tan. Nice rasion aroma with a slight malt backing. Very soft medium body beer. Malt forward, slight malt sweetness with a hint of caramel. Excellent beer. Nice mild winter seasonal.
