Draft at the Marcey St. location. Nice dark brown color and a great tan head. was pleasantly surprised at the hoppiness in both the aroma and flavor. Really put forth a nice sharp bitterness. roastiness was somewhat subdued. it was a really good stout. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Draft. The beer memory is starting to fade at this point. I remember a nice rye malt flavor and some bitterness. Mouthfeel was not really like a stout, but the beer was still pretty good. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2007
On tap at brewpup. Dark black, with a tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malt; some rye and hops. Good palate; rye flavor gave it some uniqueness. Very enjoyable. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Poured jet black with a fast-fading, oily, tan head. Up front rye in aroma with plenty of roastiness. Robust flavor but without the body to carry it... a rather wet palate. Rye intensity is herbal and almost metallic in its sharpness with dark, semi-sweet chocolate lingering beneath.

On tap @ the brewpub. Not as hoppy as I was expecting, but good nonetheless. Good stuff.

Draft Wrigleyville: Cask version. I didn’t get much Rye out of this, but it had a bitter sweet finish that suited me. Not much hop going on, but a solid stout. Zeswaft (1773) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Outstanding stout. Reminded me a lot of Storm King - a good stout with a great hop presence. In my book, a hoppy stout is a godsend. Loved it. sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2006
clyborn brewpub. mahogany hues contrast the semilucid creamy tan wrung that formed into a peninsula. Bam! thick but moderate, something about espresso and dark chocolate. that came up a few times. dunkel? anyways, it’s a charlie chaplin of craft beer apparently. bam!

Draft @ Clybourn. Poured a very deep brown with a creamy beige head. Spicy hops, dry bitter chocolate, and a light currant sweetness in the aroma... always enjoy well-placed rye. Flavor mimics the aroma well.. smooth middle, but a sharp bitterness at the finish seemed a little out of place. Just a little thin on the palate, too. Another solid effort from the Goose.

On tap at Clybourn. Nice dark pour with a nice tan head. Bitter chocolate, molasses, vanilla, coffee, and subtle hints of charcoal. I did not get a big hop kick as the menu suggested but it was a fine beer.
