drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Pretty good drinking beer in and of itself. However, it seemed to me leaning more in the porter direction. Again it was served with a small, off-white head, and good lace, which seems to be policy at GB. Color was an opaque black brown. Aroma was malt, roast, vanilla. Flavor was similar plus was fairly dry, and well balanced. Body was full and round with good carbonation. Finish was like flavor and of medium length. Session beer.

Brown pour with thin white head and lace. Light smoke/peat aroma. Light peat, toasted malt, with a light medium bitter. light medium bodied just a bit fizzy.

This is a really nice little beer. Very drinkable and flavorful. Pours a dark brown with a light tan head. Roast and coffee are the primary flavors and aroma. At 4% I could drink this all day. I’ve had better but this is very enjoyable.
