vyvvy (4777) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Pours very dark, close to black, with a large soapy brown head. The aroma has dark creamy malt, dark chocolate, dark caramel and light spice. Medium / light crisp body with flowing frothy lightly sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with dark roasted malt that has some char, some slight spiciness that seems to be from hops and some cocoa. The finish has light fruitiness, more char and a delightful smoothness to everything. This is quite a great beer.

65 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA. Deep dark chocolate appearance, thick spotty head that quickly settles down. Powdered chocolate nose, some burnt coal and a nice bitterness that sweetens at the end.

Dogbrick (9818) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Sample at Rogue Ales Distillery & Public House. The beer pours nearly black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Strong roasty aroma consisting of coffee and malt, plus some dark chocolate. Full body with flavors of charred malt, coffee, cocoa and hops. The finish is dry and roasty with a mocha aftertaste. Very good overall.

Bomber. Pours very dark, with very dark head. Smells like toast, burnt notes, chocolate. Tastes like chocolate and coffee grounds. Some grassy notes. Low carbonation, no burn to it.

Ughsmash (7407) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Bomber. Just about the darkest, thickest pour I’ve seen with a dense head that nearly matched it. The aroma picked up burnt black patent, chocolate, and charred, smoky notes accented by toasty barley and fresh earthy hoppage.. balance was perfect. The flavor held serve.. burnt black patent and chocolate again, this time joined by coffee grounds.. dry black pepper, pine, and earthy bitterness around.. vanilla and smoky notes rounded it out through the finish. Light-medium bodied, dry, and roasty on the palate.. well-balanced with a memorable finish. Absolutely excellent beer that could’ve passed for a porter.

A very satistying black lager. Leaned a bit towards the stout side, but maintained that crispness of a lager. Very nice.

17thfloor (2439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a fantastic shinny near black with a great foamy frothy mocha head. Aroma is pretty nice, chocolate cookie mostly, faint hint of citrus hops, cocoa, light and springy for style. Flavor follows, smooth chocolate cookie, kind of soda-poppy, malt hops yeast yeah yeah it’s all there, finish is weak and watery, too much cookie without anything backing it up, feels kind of vacant, I do like the yeastiness though, bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, smooth fizzy carbonation, chalky and watery. Far from what a German schwarz should be, I’m seeing a lot of these same chocolate-cookie takes on the style in America.

ilovedarkbeer (2503) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Pours a thick black oil color with a large light brown head. Nose is dark roasted coffee beans, and milk chocolate covered almonds. Taste is black tea leaves, oreo cookie crust, and marble bread (rye and pumpernickle) Mouthfeel is a bit sketchy.
