Bright beer with a bright golden color. Medium bodied beer with ginger notes that stand out from the malts and hops. Brewed with top fermenting yeast it has a clean and soft fermentation profile. The note that stands out is the one from the ginger brought from the Mexican region of Oaxaca.
A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with thick foam the color of a bourbon barrel. The nose is an intense mix of charred oak, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer.
In 2018, Goose Island brings back classic flavors (original and vanilla), switches things up (no coffee stout!), and introduces some newcomers (orange-chocolate, and this year’s sleeper, Wheatwine). Overall, the 2018 selection is a cross-section of sweet, roasty, and distinct bourbon barrel-aged beers, with flavors ranging from a dram of aged whiskey to spiced fruit punch.
