On tap @ Animal. Black colour with a creamy, dense and good lasting tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malts with notes of coffee and licorice. Flavor is toasted malts, light wood and ash with notes of licorice, coffee and black chocolate. The final has a good bodyness with notes of coffee and dry sensation.

Beese (1802) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Draft at the Rogue Hop Farms in Independence, OR on 1 June 2013. Poured a dark, dark ruby with a dense tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, dark chocolate and black cherries. Strong coffee flavour with molasses, dark fruit and just a hint of smoked malts. Finishes with burnt malts, espresso and nuttiness. Good stuff.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottled. More or less black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, mild coffee, some slight ashes as well as some toffee and sweet maltiness. Flavour is roasted malts, quite big on the bitter notes, mild ashes as well as some sweet malts to it. Quite nice bitter finish. Not your typical Schwarzbier, but still a pleasant brew.

Slubgob (184) - West Hartford, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Tap into mug. Inn black, thin tan head - looks for all the world like a stout. Mugs suck for nose, but I get a faint hint of smoke? Shockingly light in the mouth, but it is a lager, right? Easy up front, porter like chocolate and roast notes in the middle carry through to a dry cocoa finish with a bit of minerality like I expect in some dry white wines. Interesting and drinkable hybrid of styles - lager upfront, porter in the back. A beer mullet?

MacBoost (1280) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours a thick looking robust black with a tan head. Holy Jeebus, this is not what I expected. Aromas of roast and coffee. Taste is bitter coffee, heavy on the roast with a massive finish. This is 5% alcohol? Well, fuck me. This is a masterpiece for such a low ABV. Blown away.

pictoman (514) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
Poured from the tap. Black with minimal beige head. Coffee, chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Taste the same with lingering finish. Light body.

AWISLguy (1296) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bomber from Woodmans in the Falls as Chatoe Rogue Dirtour Black Lager, cellar aged about a year. Pours a very dark brown with a tan spongey head leaving strings of lace. Aroma has dark chocolate, cocoa and malti, with faint grape. Taste is of bakers chocolate, cocoa powder, some coffee with a lot of roasted malts. Medium to full bodied and quite dry. Finishes more bitter than bittersweet, with the dark choco/coffee carrying the day over the cocoa powder. A bit more promising in the aroma than the carry into the taste, but a solid schwarzbier. Just had potential for more. Aging killing it a bit, perhaps??

jcos (1540) - Maryland, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle split with Jay on 8/10/2013 at the River House.

Appearance: Pours black with light brown head.
Aroma: Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate.
Taste: Super roasty, light coffee, chocolate.
Palate:Light medium body, slightly slick.

Summary: A schwarzbier with a super amount of flavor, I enjoyed it but thought maybe it was slightly too roasty for the style.

gripweed57 (687) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Pours a dense opaque black color with a huge rocky tan head. Aroma is smoky roasted malt with hints of espresso beans and cocoa. Flavor is dark roasted malt with notes of smoked peat and French Roast coffee. Medium bodied with complex malt character. Loy’s of dark malts dominate the palate. Finish is chewy with more smokiness and subtle spicy hops.
