X59 - 2010 Goose Island Pere Jacques (USA)

Have been longing for a taste of this one - the Goose Islands beers have always impressed me, and this proved to be no exception!
The nose is deep, tight and concentrated with notes of sweet lemons, cookie dough, pan roasted nuts and english fudge. Very complex and captivating. Very, very deep. White raisins after a while. Just a lovely scent.
The taste is big and elegant at the same time, with a great structure and notes of marzipan, fudge, orange peel and a touch of tar. A long, balanced finish. A lovely creamy feeling. This is a striking beer!

96p   (tasted from bottle - 2011/03)
