Draught@Gordon Biersch, Downtown Seattle (ABV 4.3%/21 IBU)
Dark nut brown color, small beige head. Caramel, some coffee and chocolate in the nose. Light-bodied. Active carbonation. Sweetish with toasty maltyness and some coffee. Stylish although unexciting Schwarzbier.

brokensail (13679) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap @ Gordon Biersch San Jose. Dark brown color with a khaki head and some reddish highlights. A strong roasted malt note and some cola sweetness. Kind of ashy and a bit of a chocolate note. Maybe some hot cocoa mix. A bit of toasted grain to it, too. The flavor is lightly bitter and roasty. Toasted nuts, some grass, earth, and a bunch of chocolate. Good toffee and toasted bread sweetness. Not bad, I prefer it more roasty though.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2008
Dark brown. Very toasty nose with hints of roast and nutty complexity. A little bit watery and thin. The roast is cheap coffee with chocolate overtones.
