Where to start with this beer? Just getting your hands on it in the UK is an achievement, which is why we recommend you REALLY don’t hang about! If you’re lucky enough to get one, and you choose to drink it now instead of cellar it (and this is a perfect beer to cellar), then you can expect one of the most ridiculously rich and complex stouts you’ll ever taste.

Brewery Info

Great breweries start with a clear vision. Founder John Hall’s was to bring the best of European beer styles to Chicago. Since its modest beginnings in a brewpub in 1988, Goose Island went on to make some of America’s greatest beer, including Goose IPA that won medals not just once, but six times at the Great American Beer Festival.

Yup it will ruin other beers for you. As grand as can be. Worth cleaning your house and getting dressed up just to sit back and enjoy this with a friend and or a vinyl.

Oh my word, how do I start this ... It smells of singed sawdust, liquorice, old soaked oak from a tar pit, bitter chocolate, black banana skin, cinnamon and clove, red pepper berries, the sea mist on a cold winter morning .... Taste :- Warm spice hits me first, treacle, coffee, chocolate, the taste of what pine cones smell of, sweet yet bitter, molasses, honey, dried cherries, cranberries, figs, walnut ... I open my mouth over the glass and breathe in, I taste leather and rubber ... This is viscous, I swirl the beer around in the glass and it leaves a caramel residue, it is twice the thickness of normal beer, slowly returning to the liquid in the glass ... This is stunning, I have never ever tasted a beer on this level, this is head and shoulders above anything I have ever tasted in my whole life before ... I score this 37/10 beer on a totally exceptional level, this is beer of Gods, truly amazing ... What the hell this will taste like in 5 years will be something I want to find out, 10 bottles out of 12 left, I MUST fight the temptation.
