Tap (Honolulu), Pour is clear brown. Palate is light but nice roastiness on the flavor. Great if wanting fuller flavor without much weight in the body.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 17, 2008
Dark black color with a smallish head. Aroma is moderately strong malts with some roastedness. Flavor is much the same, lots of black patent malt, some chalkiness, a toch of bitterness in the finish, thin, zero complexity, moderately roasted, not bad but boring.

Has this on tap at the Virginia Beach location. Black with hints of red when held up to the light with a tan head to it. Aroma is a light roasted flavor with some nutty notes as well as a touch of charcoal. Upon first sip all is much the same but in addition to the roasted flavor there is a slight sweetness that the nose cannot pick up. Pretty good... like a porter on training wheels.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2005
Draught in DC. Great looking and sweet smelling. Luckily, taste wasn’t as sweet as the aroma. Some maltiness and a decent finish with just a hint of bitterness. Not worth the trip to Washington, but made an afternoon of sightseeing a bit more tolerable.

Draft. Mild aroma of roasted malts. Pours black thin head. Light body, medium sweet taste. Good representation of the style.

DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 26, 2007
On tap at GB restaurant. Dark brown/black color. Minimal head with a ring of tiny tan bubbles remaining. A bit of a smoky burnt toast, dark roast malty aroma. Pretty sweet flavors--malt, caramel, a light smokiness, a bit of coffee, and a very slight hint of lactic acid. Lightly carbonated, nice soft slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff, I’ve had more than one of these and it becomes my "go-to" when confronted between a choice of GB products...
