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.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Sample from beer fest. Going off notes. Poured a deep dark brown color with a tannish head. Aroma was nuts, caramel and roasted flavors. Flavor was earthy, toast, nuts and caramel. Medium body. Kind of weaker. Not a whole lot there. Still better than some.

futre7 (211) - Taipei, TAIWAN - SEP 15, 2011
Some black beers are too strong. This one is a solid effort. Malt , coffee , burnt hops and perhaps a touch of toffee. It’s a quaffable lager and if your in GB and just drinking then it’s a superb choice. It’s not too strong and doesnt get sickly like some black beers can.

onceblind (7068) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2011
On tap at 2011 Denver Brew at the Zoo. Very dark clear ruby brown with a light khaki head. Very faint aroma overall, but theres some black malt, with some light coffee and toffee in there. Body proves to be just too light. Light dark malt tones, light coffee, light toastiness. Good, just light and unexciting.

Block (2206) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Not to bad. Black pour with a light and slightly roasted aroma. Flavor is smooth. Would go good with a pizza.
