Goose Island (AB-InBev), Chicago Cubanisto - Mojito Flavour
Cubanisto products are certainly among the worst mindless beers I ever tried according to my standards, I usually enjoy drinking this kind of crap just to see how it taste, wandering around killing time, but I definitely can’t stand these beers. Awful label, awful taste, low abv, high priced, what’s the interest ? This one’s just a a bit better than the the regular one, certainly ’cause I usually hate rum-flavored beers, but it doesn’t mean it’s good for that reason. The mint aroma is hidden between alcohol and metallic taste, unpleasant in mouth, no head, no class... Just a bad beer. DISAPPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

Clear amber color and thick beige head and fair retention. Good lacing. Tastes like a mild IPA. Definite floral hop taste but not too bitter. Not my style. 6.2 ABV is well hidden.

2013 bottle which added amazing body with the age. Really this is an amazing. Beligian saison. The saison is muted as is the wine barrel. But you can detect the smoothness a wine barrel will add. Nose is light fruitiness and rose water. Body is medium. Very nice lasting head. Wow! May be inbev... but with some age amazing!

Goose Island Goose IPA
A great everyday IPA, Goose IPA has a nice citrus happiness but backs it up with a lightly nutty lightly caramel malt backbone. Balanced for an IPA. Ends with a long bitter, but not sharp, fade. Pours crystal clear light amber with a big creamy white head. Sampled through a Fizzics.

Goose Island Preseason Lager
Gold brown clear. Smells like dull hopped lager. Probably more like a IPL in taste. A logger lager for somebody who like bitter IPA hops. Perhaps just a tad of vienna in there. Near 6% and it never lets you forget.

Goose Island Gillian
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. This is a cloudy orangeish looking one. It has a small whiteish quite lacing and definitely nice looking head on the top. on the nose it’s, oh, a little sour and wood tart with green small apples, pink pepper corn, wood and it’s also a little sour cherry stone-like. Yeah, like this. This is quite a different one for sure. Lots of tartness in the taste also. Wood, soir fruits. A little pineapple, small green apple. Lots of American vinegar here. It feels mild oily in the mouth and it’s just about average on the prickling carbonation. Quite refreshing, and definitely nice tasting. 19.06.2017

Goose Island Experimental Ale - Summer 2016
Super clear, copper and golden coloured body with a soapy head, about two centimetres tall, almost pure white. Aroma of grass, funk, cardboard and very little else. Light-bodied; Strong funky flavour of malt, cardboard, grass, herbs and very little else - very mild, except for the strong pungency of off-flavours at first. Aftertaste shows not much of anything, aside from some subdued grass and funk, along with the medicinal and off-flavours that aren’t very enjoyable. Overall, a pretty passable beer with not much flavour, but what is around isn’t worth trying, even when it’s hot outside and you want something easy-to-go-down. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant Food in Falls Church (Graham Road), Virginia on 28-April-2016 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on Father’s Day 2017 with my two girls on 18-June-2017.

Goose Island Bourbon County Barleywine
Bourbon County Brand Barleywine 2016
Alkohol: 13,6% obj.
Data butelkowania: 19.10.2016
Kolor: Brunatny z rubinowymi prześwitami.
Piana: Niewielka, kremowo-beżowa o hiper-drobnej strukturze. Piana jest cholernie nietrwała. Znika bez śladu w zaledwie kilka sekund. Aparat nie zdążył nawet ostrości ustawić, a piana już całkowicie zniknęła. Brak krążkowania, brak jakichkolwiek śladów na szkle.
Zapach: Aromat jest przepiękny. Wyznacza nowe trendy i niespotykaną skalę jakości tego stylu. Sam nie wiem już czy najpierw wychodzi beczka, czy cały bogaty, owocowy profil trunku. Na samym początku czuć bardzo wyraźny aromat drewna dębowego i intensywny szlachetny alkohol - bourbon. Praktycznie na równoległym poziomie mamy całe owocowe bogactwo: jabłka, gruszki, ciemne winogrona. Czuć słodką woń karmelu, toffi, cukru trzcinowego. Pod spodem daktyle, rodzynki i odrobina czekolady. Wącham i wącham, a ślinianki niesamowicie pracują pod wpływem tego aromatu.
Smak: Jest eksplozja! Jest moc! Jest niesamowicie intensywnie. Przeogromna beczka po bourbonie. Nie ma tutaj żadnej ściemy, tylko wyraźne nuty dębowego drewna i lekkiej wanilii. Na języku wyczuwalne są akcenty karmelu, toffi, miodu, cukru trzcinowego, a w tle czekolady. Pojawia się monstrualna porcja kandyzowanych owoców (jabłka, morele, gruszki). Na jedną rzecz warto także zwrócić szczególną uwagę - na teksturę piwa. Nie wiem czy którekolwiek z dotychczas przeze degustowanych Barley Wine (nie wliczając oczywiście Utopisa) może się poszczycić taką gęstością. Piwo jest tak oleiste i kisielowate, że można w nim niemal łyżkę postawić i będzie stała na sztorc. Alkohol jest wyraźny. Rozgrzewa w piersi i w przełyku, ale stanowi wspaniałe dopełnienie. Nie gryzie, nie wychodzi na wierzch. Jeden z tych trunków, które chciałbyś mieć na leżaku w nieograniczonej ilości. Piękne, po prostu piękne!
Wysycenie: Niskie w kierunku średniego.
Podsumowanie:
Arcymistrzowski napitem. Ideał stylu i Top3 najlepszych leżakowanych Barley Wine. Poziom jakiego nie osiągnęło wielu warzących ten styl. Każdy składnik w tym piwie zna swoje miejsce. Żaden z elementów nie wychodzi na wierzch, nie wysuwa się przed szereg. Wszystko jest doskonale skomponowane i tworzy idealną całość. Nawet alkohol, który rozgrzewa od środka pasuje do kompozycji. Podobnie jak Bourbon County Brand Stout jest topowym, niezapomnianym RIS-em, tak BCBW wynosi styl Barley Wine na wyżyny.

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - Vanilla Bourbon Barrel
Aged 7 years, which is 2 years longer than recommended by the brewery. Tasted 3/6, so base my ratings on notes and memory. Pours very dark brown liquid with brown head. The aroma was filled with bourbon, roasted malt, dark chocolate and hints of vanilla. Taste is dry, low bitterness, dominated by bourbon and vanilla, supported by the roasted malts and dark chocolate. You almost caught some toasted coconut and toffee. Dry, long aftertaste with the same tastes, but vanilla even more prominent. Palate is oily with soft carbonation. If you ever have the chance to try this one out, I highly recommend it. One of the best brews I have ever tasted.

Goose Island Goose IPA
Here’s one I couldn’t believe I haven’t rated yet, it’s an oldie but now just goodie-not-greatie (?). It pours a foamy clear yellow gold pale aleish hue with a medium head and it smells pretty good, tropical notes with some light pine. The taste is a tad harsh and bitter for 2017; you can tell this is a old one, but it stills holds up for being pretty cheap these days and often being the best beer in terrible bars due to the AB-InBev distro. It is pretty easy to drink a few after you acclimate to it. Good for halting and catching fire while waiting for the doo doo medicine to take effect thus making the toilet bowl catch the poop.

Growler thanks to Dan! Big ups man. Pours pitch black, still. Aroma has a lot of porty notes, light acidity, dark chocolate, raspberries, walnuts, licorice, tobacco. Taste is porty as hell, lots of dry, walnutty notes, vinous, sweet berries, licorice, tart dark chocolate, some bitterness, roast, tobacco. Pretty damn complex but a little over the edge for me.

Goose Island Hopscience 145
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of big citrus hop notes over a hint of bready malt. Taste is balanced, hoppy and malty, with a moderate bitterness. A solid pale ale, but not sure the different temp for drying did a whole lot. I couldn’t really tell too much of a difference, but honestly had the second after quite a few other beers, including some funky and sour ones.

On draught during the tour of the Fulton St. facility. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with bubbly white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big funky brett notes, a hint of vanilla oakiness, and a hint of citrus hops. Taste is more toward the zesty earthy hop notes, with big brett funk notes throughout. Bubbly carbonation, a tad sweet, but booze is incredibly well hidden. Really interesting, really nice.
