After a disappointing first meeting with Goose Island in the form of the Nut Brown I didn't really know what to expect with this one. It turns out that it's a fine oaty. All the expected traits are here: chocolate, smoke, coffee, oats and creamy sweetness that melds well to the schwartzy aqua. That a six pack is several dollars cheaper than a 4 pack of Spammy Smith Oaters makes it that much more a boner in a bottle.
