Bottle. Pours dark amber with a coca-cola head that goes away quickly. Malty and sweet aroma with some dark fruit notes. Sticky sweet flavor with some prunes in the flavor as well. Very much like a Doppel Bock. Pretty good.

On tap @ the San Diego restaurant. By far my favorite Gordon B out of the rest. I wish they bottled this during the season. A decent sized head leaving behind lots of lacing in the glass. Flavor is spiced with clove and ginger and a proper carbonation level.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at their Honolulu location: Poured a dark brown with a thick tan head. I wasn’t expecting a Weizen Bock but that’s what this is. And pretty decent. Moderate aroma of fruit and malt. Taste is mostly weizen flavors-banana, clove. Sweet up front and lightly sour in the finish. Pretty tasty and full bodied.

Draft - I like a good Weizen Bock. This one was the sweet type that I do not much care for. It brings out too much of the alcohol flavor.

Sweet malty and and plum aroma, light head with some lacing.
Slightly sticky palate, but doesn’t hang in the mouth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is extremely easy to drink, dominated by the malt (caramel mostly). The flavor and aroma are extremely clean, but the flavor and aroma aren’t very strong. In fact, this is an excellently brewed beer without the slightest flaw in any way and there’s nothing off-putting about it, but it’s rather boring.

on tap gordon biersh: this one wound up in front of me in a nice labeled winter bock mug, cool wheat/barley emblem in the shape of a snowflake. dark chestnut brown with a large tan head that whimpered away quickly. the nose on this guy was sweet and malty maybe a bit of charcoal. typical gordon feel in the mouth and with a little more sweetness this time, due to alcohol i suppose, not much hop character at all, also another typical gordon trademark. not bad but i wouldnt want to fast on the stuff as they suggest.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the few Biersch beers with a tan head. There's a bit of molasses in the aroma. This is an easier-drinking version of the traditionally higher alcohol variety. Slight coffee/mediciney flavors, rich in character but a bit thin in mouthfeel.
