Bottle, bought @ Hop-head.dk.
Pours deep black with a nice, staying, frothy, beige head. Aroma has roasted malts, light grassy hops, mild coffee, dark chocolate. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has liqourice, roasted malts, dark chocolate, light grassy. Good, lingering malty dryness. A very solid schwarzbier!

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 26, 2010
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.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 14, 2013
Chopp. Black colour, small nice light brown head, good lacing. Roasted malt indeed in the sweet like aroma with chocolate, coffee and dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. So pleasant a roasted maltiness in the sweet flavour along with chocolate, dark fruits, licorice and a good roasty bitterness in the finish.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle at first DC tasting of 2010. Black with an attractive dark brown head. Aroma of motor oil, cinnamon and burnt espresso. Flavor has lots of roasted malts, a background of smoke and ash, and a finish of burnt coffee. More body than your average schwarzbier. Complex and interesting.

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle. Reminded me of an imperial stout. Poured tar black, thick, with a beige head. Big nose of roasted malts, coffee and light chocolate. Very rich flavor. Sweet malts blend nicely with some smoky notes. Medium to big in body with moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth. Lingering Mocha aftertaste. I want to have this beer again.
