What an excellent beer... pours very dark with lacing and brown head. Caramel, coffee and chickory aromas with a little sharp hops to the nose. More spicy hops on the palate, a touch of pine, and dry coffee, chocolate, medium caramel and tree bark. Wonderful balance; the right amount of alcohol; and a long, dry finish.

Heard some good buzz about this so thought I’d give it a whirl. Colour... jet black with a very thick tan head. Nose... roasted malt and roasted hazelnuts. Palate... frothy, dry, bitter all across the palate, very roasty, coffee and milk, damp earth, ash, long bitter finish. Nice!

Bottle/22 - Pours a dark black/brown in color with a small tan head and low carbonation. Aroma is strong with dark roasted malts. Flavor is pretty much the same. Good, easy drinking.... average... not as impressive as I had hoped...

!!!!!!!!&# did this shit come from? Rogue is a very hit-or-miss brewery as far as I’m concerned, and black lagers are one of my least favorite styles, but this is money. Pours straight up black with a wild smooth dark brown head. Big time roasty flavor, real smoky and a little bit sweet. One of the best Rogue offerings for sure.

Hm, that was interesting! GYO seems to have worked, because Rogue has produced a Schwarz that looks like a Stout and tastes like a Smoke, and it all works! Bomber pours an opaque black with a perfect true brown rocky head. Aroma is a pleasant balance of roasted nuts, chocolate, smoke, and dirt(oir?). Flavor is a complex mix of malts, with a nice mix of roasted nuts, smoke, and a touch of coffee. Quite an experience!

Bomber from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours quite black with a huge, foamy dark tan head. Smells like chocolate. Medium body plus with smooth carbonation. Flavor starts chocolate, then goes rather gritty, and almost smoky with coffee. It is much more bitter than not, and it has a really nifty mouthfeel in the finish. Wonder if I imagined the smoke. I think it’s pretty complex for a lager, and it drinks very easily. Bitter is starting to show up on the sides of my tongue, and other things are going on too. Good job from Rogue.
