Pours pitch black. Moderate dark tan head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt and a hint of caramel sweetness. Flavor is noticeably more bitter, essentially replacing the caramel with lots of coffee and burnt toast. Surprisingly creamy mouthfeel, with some bitterness and alchol in the finish. OK, but probably not something I’d go out of my way to get.

Pours black with a small brown head. Smells of caramel, bread, floral. Taste is mildly bitter and sweet, predominantly the roasted malts - chocolate/coffee

ADesenberg (551) - Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle: pours a beautiful black, a dark brown head that fades after a minute to a pure tan color. Coffee is the overwhelming smell, but once I tasted it, i see it’s well balanced by a malty sweetness and lively carbonation... Great beer.

Cold 22oz bottle: Pours an opaque black with a rocky, light chocolate colored head. Aroma is of roasted malts, fruit, some chocolate and tangy bitterness. Medium bodied and crisp, with good carbonation. Ending is of roasted malt with coffee notes.

The body is perfectly black with a medium brown sugar colored head. Milk chocolate and roasted peanuts are in the nose. There is also a little bit of fresh ground coffee. The taste has some light cola mixed with milk chocolate. The finish is burnt with coffee and a little hint of prunes. Nice and roasted, this is like a lighter bodied dry stout

Pours very black with a medium brown head and decent retention. Aroma is fresh roast coffee, mochachino, and cream. Taste is the same. Body is creamy with a long dry roasty finish. overall a very good schwarz.

Hm, that was interesting! GYO seems to have worked, because Rogue has produced a Schwarz that looks like a Stout and tastes like a Smoke, and it all works! Bomber pours an opaque black with a perfect true brown rocky head. Aroma is a pleasant balance of roasted nuts, chocolate, smoke, and dirt(oir?). Flavor is a complex mix of malts, with a nice mix of roasted nuts, smoke, and a touch of coffee. Quite an experience!

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste roasted malt, coffee. I thought this wasn't very good (don't like coffee). I wouldn't drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2010
pours black with a very nice light brown head. aroma is dominated by roasted malt but there is a hint of lager yeast and grassy hops. mouthful is bold and has up front roasted malt and smoothness, transitions to a bitter finish and a lager yeast. i like how much is going on with this beer at a sessionable 5%....

Pours almost black, with a dark tan head. Aroma is malty and dark, with hints of chocolate. Taste is rich and malty, with hops, chocolate, and coffee. Nice hoppy background. Smooth, well blended, and quite drinkable. Thumbs way up!
