22 oz bottle. Wow, fantastic! I was not expecting this beer. The beer pours a motor oil black with a small dark tan head. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malts, touches of chocolate, oatmeal, touch of spice. Flavor is full of chocolate, malty notes. This, as I already said, was fantastic. One of tjhe better schwarzbiers I’ve had, and one of the best lagers I’ve had.

Wow! Never thought I’d give a Lager a 4! Pours black like an impy stout. Nose is smoky and roasty, with notes of wood fire, oak, and tobacco. Flavor is dry, a little sour (but in a good way) and finishes clean. Meaty beer.

Damn...I was not expecting that super dark sludge to come out of this bottle...nor the blackness that settled in the glass, nor was I expected the darkest brown head I’ve ever seen. The nose has a lot going on, a whirlwind of roasted malts, pumpernickel, oatmeal, chocolate, with banana-clove german-like yeast esters. The mouthfeel is somewhat oily and inviting and chocolate flavors really come forward in the flavors. A bit roasty with a touch of pumpernickel characteristics, but mostly chocolate. This is an amazing well-crafted dark lager. that cannot be denied. If it really is only 5%, this has to got to be the best Schwarzbier ever made...such luscious body and creamy malty flavors. I certainly wasn’t expecting this..I havent had something from Rogue in years, but if this is the kind of stuff they’re making these days, I’m gonna have to revisit them.

Bomber: Pour jet black with a thick fluffy brown head, rich chocolate and roasted coffee in the aroma, starts and ends bitter, medium bodied, playful carbonation, rich chocolate ending with a touch of smoke. An excellent beer.

22oz bottle from Windmill Farms. Pours a deep, viscous midnight black with a big frothy chocolate head, nice lacing left on the glass. Big nose of roasted malts, bittersweet coffee, cocoa dust and some lingering coffee grounds. Very creamy on the palate with bittersweet chocolate and deep roasted malts. Finishes with medium hop bitterness then turns a little watery, that was the only downside to this brew.
