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

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.

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.

Black with a big creamy tan head. Malty aroma. Roast, caramel, and toffee flavors. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Finish is somewhat dry with a slight roast aftertaste.

On tap. Aroma is of a light beer. The appearance is dark with a tan head. The taste is of dry, dark malt. Dry through out. This beer is light on the palate, but leaves a lasting taste that is of cheap light beer. Overall, a decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From tap. Pours a brown in color with small head. Aroma is all roasted malt. Taste follows but is light. Deep brown pour with all that roasted malt but mouthfeel is light to medium. Crisp finish.

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...

My last Gordon Biersch of the day and finally a winner for me. Dark, dark copper appearance, almost black. Light chocolatey aroma, very inviting. Light bodied slightly dry taste of roasted chocolate. Very smooth. Very large lacing from top to bottom of the empty pint. Beautiful brew.
