The Goose Island Brasserie Noir Beer comes as the latest creation from the brewery that will provide beer drinkers with a different kind of libation to enjoy that deviates from the norm. The beer is an imperial stout that has been aged in Cabernet wine barrels for up to 12 months before being bottled, which helps to impart a unique flavor to the brew. This includes hints of dark fruit flavors as well as a certain level of sweetness and acidity that help to make it a more premium libation that can be enjoyed like a fine bottle of wine.

The Goose Island Brasserie Noir Beer features an 11.3% ABV and comes in 765ml bottles to ensure there's enough for everyone in a small group to enjoy.
