Tonight's selection is a pretty standard winter ale, Goose Island's aptly named Winter Ale. On the bottle, it explains that it has "nutty chocolate aromas." I got your nutty chocolate aromas right here. Because I'm drinking the beer right now. Chode smelling jokes aside, this is a pretty solid winter ale. It does have some nutty flavors, and it's nice and malty, as a good winter ale should be. Plus, it's not too heavy or too high in alcohol content, so you can drink a lot of them if you so desire. And you should desire.
Name: Winter Ale
Brewery: Goose Island Brewing Company

Good for drinking if: you want to bring something to a holiday party that will be universally enjoyed, except by complete assholes. And kids. You shouldn't give this to children.
