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.
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.
This world class roaster puts the same craftsmanship into their coffee as Goose Island does with its beer. Each year this excellent coffee stout is made with a different bean variety, chosen in collaboration with our brewers and Intelligentsia’s experts.
