The Goose pours out a murked greyish yellow and sits and stirs in the glass much like muddied water. Medium capping of lightish yellowed/off-white foam sits briefly before settling to a mere whisp of a skim and a few bubbles at the edges. Minimal lacing in some spots and small strings.

Aroma is all about the smoked meats baby. This goose is cooked, or smoked as it were. Big waft of smoked salmon creeps out even as its poured. Its big, bold, and loud as a goose. Hard to get much else, but its complexity of smoked stuff and strength is quite crazy.

Taste is more of the same, lots of smokey flavors over what once was a lighter doppelbock of sorts. Again, mostly smoked flavors of meats, wood, and leather make the palate soak and steam with raw might. Some sweetness backs it up, but the smoke is all over the place and quite supreme.

Feel is visciously full and robust with long smokey length that reaches beyond the sky in which it flies.

This is a great smoked beer, it has tons of smoke, perhaps too much for some; but I liked it. Just couldn't drink it as easily as I'd like. This smoked Goose has some bite to its honk!
