This long-time favorite brewers’ choice beer was created to hop us challenge expectations and keep us true. We now expose it to you. Using roasted barley, chocolate malt, and Midnight Wheat (tm), KGB has a color that is as dark as a torrid past, a body as full as a well kept dossier, and a taste a complex as a conspiracy theory.

After hearing portlandrunk (hey Murph!) rave on this, had to sneak over to the Gasthaus and try it myself. Came black with a nice head, that hung on pretty good for 10%. Nice and roasty, chocolate and some sweetness, with a lovely bitter finish. Why arent they bottling this, even as a seasonal?

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2004 Finally! A beer other than Winternacht from this brewer I can really love. Wonderful sweet aroma. Chocolate and fruit in the taste. Very dark, just a little burnt and apparent alcohol (10% ABV). I really enjoyed this and I think it should be bottled to help show people that not all Widmer beers taste the same. ReRate7-7-3: Great licorice and coffee bean flavors highlight the finish. Eating w/burger detracts from the taste. ReRate: Bourbon Barrel aged version, 1-26-04. Big 'ol bourbon taste right at the start (also in aroma). Also present in the stinging hoppy aftertaste. Really ads to this beer. My rating reflects my opinion on this particular version.

Only at the brewery - this is a beer hunter’s delight. Wonderfull dark, rich and a shot of alcohol. This is truly meant for those damp and cold northwest winters - this would warm the Grinch.

Huge beer. Nice and heavy with excellent roast. This is truly imperial.
