Draft @ Gordon Biersch downtown DC next to the Spy Museum Dark mahogany, ruby. Light head, some lacing. Nose is sweet, roasty, nice sweet fruity character. The flavor is balanced. Nearly aleish but good.

Beerman6686 (5405) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2009
This poured a very dark brown almost black color with a small eggshell head. Aroma was slightly roasted but pretty bland. Flavor was pretty watery, slightly roasted and sweet.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2006
On tap, DC location, 2006 RBSG pubcrawl. Pours a dark brown, similar to cola, under a small fizzy off-white head. Aroma is roasty with a little chocolate malt and light coffee. Flavor is nicely chocolaty and dry with a little coffee on the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly thin with a watery fizzy texture. A pretty good Schwarzbier, dry and crisp flavor and refreshingly light. A very good choice for a steaming hot summer day.

berkshirejohn (5223) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
On tap at Gordon Biersch, Buffalo, NY. Mahogany with a ring of cream head; coffee aroma; coffee taste; and a dry finish. Satisfying.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2008 Draught, Miami. Deep dark brown with inch-thick even foam. Smells like toasted grain husks, tree bark. Malty body includes lots of apples. Not bad; the only clean pour of the night unfortunately.

rich velvet black with small white head, opaque. Mild, malty aromas, chocolate syrup, some dark berries, and licorice. Thin. Nice malt. Clean. Licorice, chicory, and cocoa. Abrupt finish but for some lingering malts. Not bad.

On tap at GB KC. The body was very dark brown. The aroma was roasted coffee with some light caramel. The taste was roasted coffee and caramel. Again, another GB beer with a nice clean finish. Probably the best I had while at GB in KC.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2011
On tap at the DC location. Reviewed from notes. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a slight tan head and a bit of lacing. The nose is darkly-roasted malts with some light chocolate as well as a moderate amount of earthy hops. The taste is a bit more subdued. There is some nice roast, but the chocolate and earthy notes from the nose are quite a bit more muted. The feel is nice and pretty roasty. Fairly dry in general with a nice finish. Drinkability is decent enough, but there’s not enough there to keep me hanging on. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-13-2010

Quite roasty aroma. This definitely is the most complex of the beers I’ve had from these guys. Roasty and a bit heavier; not amazing but good. Still light enough to have a few.
