BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 15, 2009
On tap at the Pizza Port Session Ale Fest. Pours with a hazy deep brown body and a generous khaki head. Aroma of leather, cocoa, and coffee. Taste is light coffee, leather, earthy malts, and a bit lactic. Light bubbles, dry mouthfeel.

onceblind (7890) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2011
On tap at 2011 Denver Brew at the Zoo. Very dark clear ruby brown with a light khaki head. Very faint aroma overall, but theres some black malt, with some light coffee and toffee in there. Body proves to be just too light. Light dark malt tones, light coffee, light toastiness. Good, just light and unexciting.

solidfunk (7880) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Not so bad really, just, well, not so good. Pours dark maroon with some vague notion of head and lacing. Aroma has an IOU roast with a hint of coffee even. Light bitter finish. Average carbonation, as can be expected. Tap at brewpub.

after4ever (7654) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Draft at the San Jose brewery. This one has a little color--medium amber and even a hint of tan in the head. Theres roast/toast in the nose (though not much), and some in the finish, too. Not overly gifted with body or carb, and not super-flavorful, but at least you could tell it from their pilsner in a blind tasting.

nimbleprop (7625) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 26, 2009
Had more than a few pints of this at a recent dinner at the DC location. Looks like a stout, opaque black, soft white head. Aroma of toast, nuts, some dark fruits. Flavor was malty, nutty, toast, breads. Crisp, clean finish. Good session beer.

radagast83 (7515) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2007
Tap at Virginia Beach location. Absolutely my most favorite from my visit. Dark brown color. Aroma is that of caramel, and roasted nuts. Flavor is full of caramel, and has hints of chocolate.

Ernest (7438) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Draught. Head is light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, coffee), with a note of mineral/stone. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Easily the best Gordon Biersch creation Ive had.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2009
On tap at the Rockville location: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a clingy-lacing froth of off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty dark caramel and roasted malt and earthy hops. Starts with a creamy fullness and some semi-sweet roasty dark malt with decent German hop balance before a bittersweet finish with some lingering roastiness. A pretty decent Schwarzbier.
