tmoreau (2287) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Pint served at Bolingbrook, Il. to top off the Weizenbock tapping evening. Poured dark brown, with an average, foamy head, and fair lacing. Aroma was roasted notes, coffee, and a wisp of smoke. These, a little bakers chocolate and a steady bitterness were present in the flavor. No need to let warm too much! Dark, smooth, and drinkable. Good example of the style.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Pours from the tap to an old motor oil black (expected of a Schwarzbier), with a thick foamy tan head that lingers well thru the entire drink and leaves decent lacing. The nose, while somewhat muted, is licorice and a hint of roasted nuts. Mouth is very tingly, albeit a tad weak, with the taste again leaning toward licorice. Finish is of medium duration and a little watery, but overall a pretty decent beer.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2009
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of roasted malt, fruity. Tastes sweet and malty with a nutty finish.

drpimento (2153) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Pretty good drinking beer in and of itself. However, it seemed to me leaning more in the porter direction. Again it was served with a small, off-white head, and good lace, which seems to be policy at GB. Color was an opaque black brown. Aroma was malt, roast, vanilla. Flavor was similar plus was fairly dry, and well balanced. Body was full and round with good carbonation. Finish was like flavor and of medium length. Session beer.

Sampled at Gordon Biersch Dallas, TX. Pours almost black hue. Aroma is coffee and some toasted malt. Body is creamy, medium-full. Taste is similar to aroma. Long coffee finish. On the whole, it is nice brew.
