Goose Island Pepe Nero
Goose Island Pepe Nero while I was in Denver and brought home to review it. The beer pours a black color with an extremely lofty tan head that rushes out of the glass and leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of toasted malts, bready yeast, chocolate, and oak. The taste is smooth and creamy with plenty of toasted malts. Hints of dark chocolate linger in the background with some caramel, vanilla, and oak. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. It was surprising how smooth the beer was with the toasted malt flavor. The creaminess of the beer with roasted flavor was enlightening and amazing.
