Goose Island Nice Surprise

Brewed by Goose Island Beer Co.

American Porter8.3% ABV24 IBU

A Real Nice Surprise draws inspiration from two holiday classics – eggnog and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. When our brewers sat under the train tracks sipping on the infamous, and high-octane, Tom & Jerry the team knew the flavors of eggnog, rum and bourbon needed to find a home in a holiday beer. A Real Nice Surprise starts life as a rich porter brewed with chocolate malts, cinnamon, and nutmeg that is then aged in a combination of rum, bourbon, and brandy barrels for two months resul

It’s the only type of sugar that is unfermentable by yeast, which adds more perceptible creaminess and sweetness to the finished

Brewed in the authentic historical style of an Imperial Russian Stout, this beer is massive. Intensely aromatic (notes of anise, black currants, coffee, roastiness and alcohol) and heavy on the palate, this brew goes where few can - and fewer dare try.
