Frank (3957) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2015
This is another solid lager from Gordon Biersch. It’s garnet brown w/ a thin white head. It’s a touch on the sweet side which brings out some chocolatey notes. It’s mild but still very full bodied and rich w/ a porter-like character to it as you’d expect from the style. It’s really tasty and not overstated, a well-done beer for sure.

DSG (11399) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Gordon Biersch Mission Valley in San Diego. Dark brown. Aroma of roast, coffee, caramel and some diacetyl. Sweetish flavor with roast, a faint buttery note, a nutty note and a drier finish with a coffee hint. Light to medium-bodied, kinda over-carbonated. Easy-drinking.

brokensail (15642) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap @ Gordon Biersch San Jose. Dark brown color with a khaki head and some reddish highlights. A strong roasted malt note and some cola sweetness. Kind of ashy and a bit of a chocolate note. Maybe some hot cocoa mix. A bit of toasted grain to it, too. The flavor is lightly bitter and roasty. Toasted nuts, some grass, earth, and a bunch of chocolate. Good toffee and toasted bread sweetness. Not bad, I prefer it more roasty though.

BierMeHoos (546) - Maryland, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Draft at Gordon Biersch in Washington, D.C. The color is dark brown almost black. The aroma and taste are of toasted and malt with a bit of cocoa and even vanilla. The feel is a bit thinner than I would like. Overall it was decent but not great.

TEJA (2200) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2014
Draught at G.B. in San Fransisco. Beige 7 brown head. Medium brown color. Roasted malt aroma. Roasted malt taste with dark roasted caramell malt that makes it too sweet for a good Schwarz beer. Fine balanced bitterness.
