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

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.

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 doesnt drop off at any point A very good and drinkable beer. Tasty, but seems to lack a slight bit for me

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.

Pours an amber brown with a thick off-white head. Aromas of rye bread and caramel. Spicy flavor up front from the rye with a long dry finish. A very nice sesion ale.

Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Mild malt smell, dark body translucent to the light, lacking something in taste. Bland smooth flavor but lacking body. Overall a good winter offering that isnt too spiced.
