Coke pour with an of-white head with lacing effects. Roasted aromas with some coffee and burnt wheat. Tastes of watery coffee, faint dark chocolate, and some smokiness. Thick mouth feel, fills you up quite fast. Almost syrup-like in regards to the palate. A tasty beer.

Whoa, heavy as heck on this one here (need to watch my language in family-oriented Colorado). Slight smoky and wafty flavor.

Draft @ Annapolis: Poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was smoked malts and nuts. The flavor was smooth, well balanced, smoke, sweet malts, nuts, and a hint of jerky. Overall, my favorite at this place and starting to be a favorite style of mine as well.

On tap at GB Old Town Pasadena. Pours a clear black obsidian with a very thin tan head. Nutty aroma with chocolate, toffee, vanilla and citrus notes. Strong coffee flavor with a slightly roasted malt backbone and floral, herbal hops. Thin mouthfeel. Crisp finish with some caramel and vanilla sweetness. This just missed the boat along the way because it could be a very good beer.

one of the better gordon biersch offerings, which isn’t saying much. it’s pretty smoky and burnt and very dry, but it was the best of what was on tap at the palo alto GB

rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Poured from tap at brewery a very dark brown with large tan head. Aroma is mild with roasted tart/sour grain. Flavor has a burnt caramel and nuttiness along with roasted grain. The palate has a dry light malty feel with just a touch of sweetness. Overall, I like this one even ordering another. It has a good balance between flavor and fullness without being too heavy.

mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2006
On tap at DC location. Color is a cola-like dark brown. Supports a thin off-white head with fairly good durability. No lacing. A restrained aroma of roasted malt, toffee and some chocolate. Mouthfeel was light and spritzy with a slightly watery texture in the finish. Clean, uncomplicated and mildly sweet flavors of dark roasted malt, burnt toast, chocolate, mocha and caramel. Shows a nice balance between the sweeter malts and more bitter, acidic roasted malt contributions. A simple and refreshing beer which is a nice rendidtion of the style.
