DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2013
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Red Brick. Clear darker amber / red color. Minimal slightly off-white head. Smooth, lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Some chocolatey flavor. Light roast, light bready malts. Lightly spicy. Hint of tropical fruity hop. More bitter taste, light sweet. Decent schwarzbier, nothing really special, for me

Metalchopz (2125) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2013
Enjoyed at the Syracuse, NY brewpub. Poured a dark brown colour with a beige creamy head and wavy lacing. Aromas of light roasted malts with hints of coffee. Medium-bodied. The taste also has the roasted malts, mild again, with dark fruit notes and molasses. This is an easy drinking dark lager.

Draught. This is a decent Schwartz with a good balance and a nice dry finish. It is the best GB beer i have tried.

cfrancis (2156) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2013
Pours a thin black with a beige head. Aroma is lightly roasted malts. Taste is toasted malts and thin body. Disappointed.

Elwood (2960) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2013
Serving: Draft at the Navy Yard brewpub. It pours black with a slight tan head. The nose has a nice bit of roasted malt and a touch of earth. The flavor isn’t as vibrant as I hoped with light earth, medium roasted malt, slight burnt notes, and a touch of coffee. Light to medium body with a short finish. Certainly drinkable but not inspiring.

On draft in Atlanta. Black pour with red highlights. Nice lacing. Sweet roasted malt with no hint of bitterness. Flavor is lightly toasted dark malt. Decent stuff.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 13, 2013
On draft at the Las Vegas brewpub. Subtle coffee and chocolate, the bittering is firm, floral hops. Poured very cloudy, looks like dirty water.
