GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Draught at the Cedar Rapids, IA location. Opaque black with foamy light brown head that left a thin, filmy lace on the glass. Smelled of chocolate and roasted malt with a hint of anise and a dash of molasses. Flavor was well rounded with chocolate and coffee notes, but was not as complex as the aroma. There was a pleasant subdued campfire smoke finish. Carbonation was on the low end, and it was creamy, dry, and earthy on the tongue. Pretty good beer.

above average nitro stout.....not too wimpy, but just wimpy enough.....nice and roasty......i was a bit offended when i got the bill and saw that i was charged $5.25 for what they called 20 oz of beer. (it looked and drank like a pint to me) ill stop there, because if i dont this will turn into a review of the restaurant not just the beer........

good DRY stout. If you do not like dry stouts this will not be sweet enough for you. I tried this about 2 years ago and did not like it at all. tried it again recently and was very surprised. Nice brussels, great lacing and cascade after pour. They have definately upgraded to a nitro system. I drink it frequently now at the original GCB in St. Cloud, MN so it may be differnt elsewhere.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Draught at Cedar Rapids. Pours brown-black with almost no head (what head I can stir up is beige). The aroma is rich mocha, some vanilla, wood, and a bit of a boggy note. The flavor is bitter chocolate with forward roastiness. More earthy hop bitterness than I expected. Caramel and pine in the finish.

Dark red brown color with a thick off white head. There is a light nose displaying hints of coffee and oats. The palate comes across as slightly creamy with notes of milk chocolate and coffee. An OK stout.
