Nice cola black pour leads to a slightly sour roasted malt flavor. The aroma is hard to describe but it kind of smells like garbage?

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2012
Originally reviewed: 3/12/12. On-tap at the Burbank, CA location. Came out a deep unassuming black. A small beige sheet of head capped it off. The nose carried notes of coffee, mild cocoa powder and faint aromas of leafy veggies. Moderate carbonation here. Decent feel. Good roasted flavors noted, as well as a bit of a hop smack on the finish. Semi-sweet dark chocolate, mild graininess. This was a good beer, and really hit the spot on this mid-afternoon stop. I’d like to see this one in bottle form.

phaleslu (6295) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Draft at Gordon Biersch-Columbus. Pours a dark brown-amber, clear, with big carbonation bubbles and a beige head. Aroma of toasted brown sugar, chocolate and roasted malts, and earth. Flavor of toasted and caramel malts, darker chocolate than in the nose, earth, and pumpernickel. Light-medium bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Not a bad schwarzbier.

Poured from a draft into my Gordon Biersch mug. Color was black with a hint of brownish red mug. Reddish tint at the bottom. About 1 ½ inches of head. Good lacing on the top. Sporadic bubbly film on the sides. Chocolate malts on the nose. Also some caramel and toffee. Tasted more coffee than chocolate. Dark chocolate actually. Pretty smooth. Medium body. Thin creamy texture. Average carbonation. Smooth finish. Enjoyed this beer after two straight bad ones. It may be my non-seasonal-go-to-beer from GB now.

On draught at the Taipei location. Pours a dark amber color with lasting tan lace. Slightly dry dark malt character. Dry finish. OKAY.

On tap at brewpub. Pours very dark brown with small tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and some caramel. Flavors of roasted malts, chocolate, light coffee, and some toffee. Finish malty. Very enjoyable.
