Ernest (6731) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Draught. Head is light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, coffee), with a note of mineral/stone. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Easily the best Gordon Biersch creation I’ve had.

after4ever (6693) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Draft at the San Jose brewery. This one has a little color--medium amber and even a hint of tan in the head. There’s roast/toast in the nose (though not much), and some in the finish, too. Not overly gifted with body or carb, and not super-flavorful, but at least you could tell it from their pilsner in a blind tasting.

b3shine (6619) - Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Draft to taster at the Atlanta brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent brown with foamy off-white head. Smells malty with notes of dough and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

Braudog (6016) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Draft at the Washington DC brewpub, 5/5/06: Pitch black (duh). Almost a stouty roastiness with a bit of a tart side. Good.

nimbleprop (5962) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 26, 2009
Had more than a few pints of this at a recent dinner at the DC location. Looks like a stout, opaque black, soft white head. Aroma of toast, nuts, some dark fruits. Flavor was malty, nutty, toast, breads. Crisp, clean finish. Good session beer.

thirdeye11 (5782) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
(draught) medium clear brown with decent tan bubbles around the edges. Nose of lightly sweet brown sugar, mild watery coffee, touch of smoke, and some cereal grains. Taste of cereal grain, watery coffee, a touch of smoke, and light brown sugar. Hate to repeat the Mose but it tasted exactly like i expected after smelling it. Light body and lots of flavor for the style.
