Cask at Goose Island - Clybourn. Served in a snifter. This batch was listed at 10%.
A - A half finger of persistent tan foam that settles to a near solid cap and collar. Nice spotty lacing, Dark brown with transparent ruby highlights. Good looking cask brew.
S - Cocoa and nuts, light floral and piney hops, rum-soaked dark fruits. There's a lot of fusel alcohol in the nose, which is distracting and quite unfortunate.
T - There's an unfortunate touch of earthiness, wood, and cardboard, particularly in the finish - perhaps this has been on cask for too long. Biscuit and cocoa malts, and thankfully much better hidden booze - nowhere near as hot as it smells. Maybe a touch of spice. There's some lingering bitterness as well.
M - Smooth, creamy, medium body, with obviously lower carbonation. There's a little bit of warming after a half glass, but nothing out of line with a 10% brew.
D - Thanks to the texture and the well-hidden ABV in the taste, this is actually pretty easy drinking. It just tastes kind of stale/old. I'd like to try this on-tap again to see how different it is - I had a taster a few months ago and I don't remember the same amount of dirt/earth flavor.
