Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer
Our brewmasters partnered with Goose Island Research and Development brewer Tim Faith to craft a homebrewing recipe that perfectly captures the complex flavors and character of the Goose Island original.

The result of that collaboration is an unbelievably memorable brew that evokes the creamy essence of the eggnog cocktail that inspired it, along with notes of milk chocolate, nutmeg and a big, toasty malt backbone. It also conveys the complex flavors of barrel aging that have become a Goose Island trademark…without the barrel aging.

Brew plenty, because this is one beer that tends to acquire a following, and you’ll want to savor it as long as you can.

Product Details
This unforgettable Porter actually has its roots in a Goose Island brewing throwdown. Every year, Goose Island employees from throughout the company get the chance to dream up and brew up experimental beers alongside Goose brewers. Out of several entries, only four winning recipe are selected to be brewed and offered in limited release as part of the brewery’s Fulton & Wood series.

As part of their research, the Fulton & Wood team went to Miller’s pub during Christmas time to try their famed Tom & Gerry Cocktail. When they sat in their booth sipping on the infamous and high-octane Tom & Gerry, the team knew the flavors of eggnog, rum and bourbon needed to find a home in a holiday beer. A Real Nice Surprise started its life as a rich porter brewed with chocolate malts that was then aged in a combination of rum, bourbon, and brandy barrels for two months resulting in a smooth, creamy beer that was an instant favorite.

The brewing team continued to perfect the profile, adding warm and spicy notes, along with a toasted, creamy character. The result is a Porter that has become a favorite among Goose Island employees.

Tasting Notes:

Dark chocolate porter with creamy tan-colored head. There is an aroma of milk chocolate and approachable roast. The flavor is amplified by a noticeable mouth coating smoothness and a lingering wood-like aftertaste. Chocolate, roasted malt, oats and a lactose backbone further encourage a uniquely inspired porter that sips oh-so-smoothly. Think Malted Milk Balls with a crisp, delicious finish.
