Thanks to ilovedarkbeer for sharing this bottle. The beer pours dark brown to black with a large, mocha-colored head. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee. The flavor is bitter chocolate, burnt malt and coffee. The aftertaste is hop bitterness and burnt malt. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Dry finish. Overall, an interesting beer that doesn’t really fit the style for schwarzbier, but I am not sure what else to call it. A nice hybrid.

CanIHave4Beers (3198) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 5, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2011 Pours a black color with a small tan head and some good lace. The aroma is smoky coffee with some roasty maltiness. The flavor is lightly fruity (hops?) with plenty of expresso and some burnt toast. Even if it’s lagered this is way more reminiscent of a porter than a Schwarzbier.

BMan1113VR (7835) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours a thick inky black in to the glass with a large tan head. Aroma is very roasty with rye, pumpernickel bread, nutshells and chocolate. Taste is tobacco, nutshells, light esters, and really dry. The thin body reminds you that this is not an imperial stout. An abrupt finish with nice carbonation. Don’t quite know what to make of this beer. An aborted Baltic Porter attempt? Interesting.

unclemattie (4136) - Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2010
22oz bottle. Jet black pour with the darkest head of foam I’ve ever seen on a beer. Dark brown. Huge lacing. Aroma of burnt grains, high cacao % dark chocolate scent as well. Light bodied. Flavor of BBQ, burnt malt, earth, soil, soy, roast, and a little herbal hops. Finishes with a bit of spice on the palate. Clean, crisp, light bodied, & burnt. Awesome.

My 50th ROGUE Rating.

StefanSD (2089) - Lakeside, California, USA - FEB 4, 2010
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours an opaque black color with a big tan head that has great retention. The aroma is earthy with chocolate, dark roasted grains and coffee. The taste is more of the same , lots of dark bitersweet chocolate, mocha, mild coffee and gritty burnt rye. The palate is uneven with soft carbonation. The finish is long and bitersweet with lingering chocolate. Overall: A very tasty concoction, one of the better dark chocolate beers I’ve had recently.

thornecb (4320) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Pours black into a lager glass. Mocha micro head with excellent retention leaves spotted sheets as it recedes to coat surface. Dark chocolate, espresso and manure aromas. Slightly thin with metallic manure upfront turning to a lasting dark chocolate finish. Seems like I’m the only one that got prominent manure aromas and flavors - that said, it’s not bad for manure...

TomDecapolis (4445) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Pours a deep black with a medium creamy deep tan head that left lacing. Aroma of rich chocolate notes, almonds, light smoke, caramel and roasted malt. Flavor of dark chocolate, roasted malt, touch of smoke, nuts and caramel.

Pailhead (4637) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle: The aroma is loaded with chocolate along with moderate roastiness, vanilla, nuts, and faint burnt coffee. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a large tan head with great retention and lacing that really coats the glass...a great looking beer. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate with a hint of caramel. The finish is heavily roasted with some light coffee and a hint of vanilla and burnt notes. Medium bodied with moderate soft carbonation.
