3.5/5 rDev -5.4%
Arrives nearly black with a light tan head. Retention is OK, just but nothing great. Good lacing to start but weak later.
Smell is mostly toasted malt with a hint of vanilla and caramel, I think.
Taste is solidly balanced with toasted malt, caramel, vanilla and not much else. Balance is good though.
Medium bodied with a sharp effervescence up front that drops off quickly. Drying finish, cleaner than I thought. A decent brew but nothing special.

Had on tap at a GB restaurant. It's got that deep black body, medium tan head. Dark roasted malts are apparent on the nose and palate. Slightly bittersweet, pretty well-balanced. GB definitely does malty stuff well, and their Schwarzbier is as expected. Nothing fancy, but enjoyable.

My first time with the style and I liked this one. Poured brown with a big fluffy white head and lots of bubbles flowing through. Aroma of light roast, smoke, some chocolate sweetness. Flavor follows with roasty chocolate and a hint of smoke, but very light. Kind of a very light porter with the roasty chocolate smell and taste. Finishes well with just a hint of smoky bitter and roasty chocolate lingering on the palate. Good beer.

On-tap at the Burbank, CA location.
Came out a deep unassuming black. A small beige sheet of head capped it off. The nose carried notes of coffee, mild cocoa powder and faint aromas of leafy veggies. Moderate carbonation here. Decent feel. Good roasted flavors noted, as well as a bit of a hop smack on the finish. Semi-sweet dark chocolate, mild graininess. This was a good beer, and really hit the spot on this mid-afternoon stop. I'd like to see this one in bottle form.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at Gordon Biersch in Annapolis, MD out of a pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark black hue with a 2-finger off-white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.
S: Musty caramel aroma with hints of coffee and coca powder.
T: Smooth roasted malt flavor with slight hints of coffee and caramel. Very clean and crisp beer.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: This is very good and interesting beer. It is dark in color yet light in taste and abv. Lots if flavors and aromas here. Very enjoyable and smooth.

From Kansas City Restaurant
Appearance: It was a black bodied beer with a dark brown hue. The head and lace were both a little thin and a tan color.
Smell: It smells of caramel and a little bit of coffee.
Taste: The flavor is not over powering but is still very roasted and malty. Small tones of sweetened coffee with a dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Light and a bit watery but you find that in most German Schwartz(s).
Overall: It might be my favorite from this particular visit.
