Draft: Starts strong stout like, mid way it becomes simpler, maltier and sweeter. Finish is refreshing light.

Draught at the brewpub, Washington DC
Black color. Soma roasted malt and cardboard aroma. Nice flavor, dry, mix of roasted malt and chocolate malt, milky. Not bad.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 26, 2007
On tap at GB restaurant. Dark brown/black color. Minimal head with a ring of tiny tan bubbles remaining. A bit of a smoky burnt toast, dark roast malty aroma. Pretty sweet flavors--malt, caramel, a light smokiness, a bit of coffee, and a very slight hint of lactic acid. Lightly carbonated, nice soft slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff, I’ve had more than one of these and it becomes my "go-to" when confronted between a choice of GB products...

JamesD (243) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2007
A decent schwarzbier. It has a very roasted nose and a very light body for a beer this dark. Other than that it’s pretty malty, with a slight coffeeish aroma and flavor. Worth trying if you’re at a Gordon Biersch but not worth seeking out.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Light roasted aroma with little else to the aroma. Flavor has a nice roasted taste with a coffe like finish.

Kinz (3303) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2007
VA Beach location. Deep brown. Faint coffee aroma. Strong coffee flavor. A touch of a carbonic bite. Not bad, sort of a desert schwarz.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2007
The beer from the tap a deep brown to black with nice ruby highlights, the head a perfect two fingers, creamy tan in color, evaporates slowly, leaving a thick sheet of lace to obfuscate the glass. Nose has a toasted grain aroma, sweet with hints of smoke, caramel, maybe a licorice like tone, mouthwatering. Front has a splendid toasted malt presence, sweet with a delectable hop spicy bite at the back. Finish pleasantly acidic, hops spicy and delightful, dry lingering aftertaste, a great representative to the style.

BeerandBlues2 (9760) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Draught at Colorado Springs Airport. Pours black with brown highlights and an average, foamy, light brown head, somewhat lasting, spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, chocolate, nutty), light hops (herbs), average yeast (dough) with notes of dust and paper. Medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness; roasted light chocolate malt flavor with a tingling carbonation at the end.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 11, 2007
This was probably the best of the sampler. A black apperance with a reddish hue. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, and licorice. The flavor is quite roasty with some chocolate and coffee. The finish is rather dry. Overall this wasn’t bad at all.
