Festivity Ale by Goose Island
Currently available at Wise Guys in 6 packs for $9.97
 
 
 
 
Beer Style:  American Brown Ale - This style originated from the English Brown Ale but uses American ingredients. The ingredients, hop, malt and flavor profile vary by brewery. Typically dark in color with a "nutty" flavor.
 
Appearance:  Pours a cascading dark amber color with some dark red tint and a 1-4 inch head
 
Aroma:  Dark fruit, sweet roasted malt
 
Mouthfeel:  Creamy with a medium body
 
Taste:  This is a fairly complex beer with a wide spectrum of flavors. The dark fruit and sweet roasted malt dominate initially, with coffee and molasses to follow. Finishing with a little spice and some hops.
 
Overall:  This brew is more like a stout than a brown ale, which is a pleasant surprise. The flavor is great and the beer is well balanced. It is not often that you can pinpoint all these flavors in a beer, without it being a mess.
 
This is also brewed in Chicago where their other special releases are brewed.
 
 
Cheers,
Beer Guy
