    Was gifted some from brotha Gene. Had 2 bottles and both were great. The coffee stout is amazing. Great flavors. Sip don't down it

    Technically, this year they made 5.

    1) Stout
    The standard they make every year
    2) Coffee Stout
    The above brewed with coffee
    3) Barleywine
    Complete tastegasm... Just saying...
    4) Backyard Rye
    Super limited. Bombers Only. Aged on Templeton Rye barrels. I got a single bottle.
    5) Proprietors
    This year I believe it's Rye w/ the addition of toasted coconut. Super hyper limited. Not available outside of Chicago

    Style: Imperial Stout
    Brewery: Goose Island Beer Company
    ABV: 14.20%
    Color: Deep rich brown to almost jet black
    Glass Ware: Tulip or Snifter
    Pairing: Tat Black Lance or CG or Anejo or liga no 9. Its the perfect after dinner or dessert beer for sipping. Cellar temp is the best way to drink this but allowing this stout to warm up a bit allows for the flavors to truly come out.

    I've had it and was blown away by how thick and creamy this stout is. Hints of vanilla, bourbon, dark chocolate, and toffee with a slight wavering of caramel. This is truly a stout that is meant to be sipped and enjoyed slowly. I paired with a nice DPG 10th Ann but I would recommend just having this stout by it self to truly enjoy the amazing and complex flavors. I hold this Stout slightly above the Coffee Stout and just below the Barley Wine.

    I'm pretty certain I'll get Vanilla Rye (likely a single bottle), I'm hoping I can bribe someone in the Chicago area to get me a Proprietors...
