I got off a little early from work today, so I decided to swing by Goose Island to kill some time until Carrie gets off work. They currently have the Dead Goat Porter as their “Cask Conditioned” ale.
Wow. This is a really amazing porter. Smooth and well balanced, with a nice creamy head. I’m so glad I stopped by, since the Cask Conditioned ales don’t last long.
It’s too bad they don’t fill growlers from the cask ales (only the draft beers are available in growlers).
Hopefully, I’ll get off work a little early tomorrow, so I can stop by and have this again before it runs out.
If you happen to live in Chicago, try to get to Goose Island (Clybourn location) before this runs out.
