Shanebrews' rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Shanebrews (294) - Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
I don’t usually go for the black beers but I liked this one. I thought the head retention was adequate and the maltiness of the aroma was enticing. The body isn’t too heavy. The palate is very creamy and pleasantly bitter.

At Bolingbrook location. Rather mild, not over roasted or bitter. Serving: Tap

JohnRMurdoch (5043) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Tap @ Gordon Biersch, Taipei. Very dark brown, reasonable head. Cola malt aroma. Sweet flowery toffee malt flavour. Smooth with dry malty aftertaste. Sixth and final bland beer from this fast food chain.

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 (15237) - 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 (16645) - 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 (644) - 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 (3255) - 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.
