3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. It pours a jet black color with a small orange/brown head. The aroma is rather acidic with lots of roasted malt, burnt toast and hints of caramel, coffee and earth. The flavor is similar with a lot of roasted acidity up front with some burnt character and an earthy background. Some coffee-like acid and seltzer water in the finish. Oh yeah, more dirty roasted malt too. Pretty full bodied despite the acidity and seltzer qualities. Not bad.

A parte che questa birra di una lager non è neppure lontana cugina, nient’altro da obiettare. Aroma e gusto intensi di caffé, accompagnati da una nota leggera di liquirizia. Quando Rogue va in campagna, il gusto ci guadagna!!

Tap at Rogue Bar SF. Tastes like hops and roasted coffee malts. Bit of dark chocolate and burnt toast in there too. Pretty simple stuff. Works well.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, coffee. I thought this wasn't very good (don't like coffee). I wouldn't drink this again.

Draft. Deep black, thick and not much carbonation... Very good overall and in all facets. Roasted but not sharp. Strong recommend.

On tap at Manito Tap
Black with little transparancy and an etched dark mirror surface accented by slightly mocha foam. Some soapy bubbles around the perimeter and center. Smells of dry toasted malts, some coffee, some dark cocoa, some soil and a little bit of almond. Nice nose. Taste is dry and toasted with a slight sweetness and a ton of coffee ground and soil character. Medium light bodied with lower carb and an appropriately dry finish. Nice beer, I hate Rogue, but this is a good Schwarzbier.

A very nice black lager. The dry aftertaste actually tastes a little bit like dirt. Opaque black, dark tan head, wonderful roasted aroma.
