12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of caramel and pale malts, light dark fruits, some rye spiciness, and a light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not a bad beer. Lemke10 (987) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2013
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! fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2013

Poured from a bottle, dark amber pour with a decent sized white head. Aroma of some malt and a bit copper/metallic. Taste of malt, nuts, a light toffee caramel, not bad.

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. DavidWoodruff (629) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 22, 2013
Appearance: Dark brown with brown head.
Aroma: Some roasted malt notes with a hint of toffee.
Flavor: Coffee, earth and toast with little hop bitterness.

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 mnmike (1086) - Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2013
