KUEric (889) - San Francisco, California, 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.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Had on tap at the New Orleans location. Like its name states in German, it is a black beer. Pours dark with a nice head. My favorite of the beers at this brewpub.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2006
On tap at DC location. Color is a cola-like dark brown. Supports a thin off-white head with fairly good durability. No lacing. A restrained aroma of roasted malt, toffee and some chocolate. Mouthfeel was light and spritzy with a slightly watery texture in the finish. Clean, uncomplicated and mildly sweet flavors of dark roasted malt, burnt toast, chocolate, mocha and caramel. Shows a nice balance between the sweeter malts and more bitter, acidic roasted malt contributions. A simple and refreshing beer which is a nice rendidtion of the style.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2006
My last Gordon Biersch of the day and finally a winner for me. Dark, dark copper appearance, almost black. Light chocolatey aroma, very inviting. Light bodied slightly dry taste of roasted chocolate. Very smooth. Very large lacing from top to bottom of the empty pint. Beautiful brew.
