rmussman (1688) - California, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Sampled at one of their brewhouses in San Jose. Has a pour like an stout and dark. Had a smooth drink and a decent flavor. Had very little aftertaste and very little flavor. Overall one of the best from GB but not great."

nick76 (4144) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2007
The aroma has caramel, and some nuttiness. The appearance is medium brown like a brown ale. The flavor is sweet and quite tasty with plenty of caramel. The palate is thin but smooth. A good tasting beer but not a typical Schwarzbier.

KUEric (884) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2007
One of my least favorite of the sampler. Dark looking and boring tasting would sum up my opinion of this beer.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2006
On tap at GB Old Town Pasadena. Pours a clear black obsidian with a very thin tan head. Nutty aroma with chocolate, toffee, vanilla and citrus notes. Strong coffee flavor with a slightly roasted malt backbone and floral, herbal hops. Thin mouthfeel. Crisp finish with some caramel and vanilla sweetness. This just missed the boat along the way because it could be a very good beer.

On tap at the Virginia Beach location. Dark mahogany with a tan head. Sweet malt nose, a roasty, almost burnt quality, light chocolate and faint coffee. Slightly sweet flavor, roasty malt, a touch of charcoal, light coffee. Body on the light side of medium. Rather pleasant with my meal.
