hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2010
Pours a black hole and a dark brown head. The aroma is roasty, smokey and fruity. The flavor is very chocolaty with coffee, smoke, soft fruit, ash, and a leafy greeniness that lingers. The palate is huge, very very heavy. Very nice.

Pitch black body, dark brown head. Very nice malty aroma with smoke, coffee, caramel, licorice and chocolate. Medium body with decent carbonation. Excellent roasted malty flavour with smoke, coffee and chocolate. Great.

Black pour with a brown head that reminded me of bubbling toffee. Roasty, malty, coffee and chocolate aromas, flavours are dark chocolate, almost sweet chocolatey liqueur. Weirdly interesting and bloody tasty

UPDATED: APR 17, 2010 I certainly didn’t expect this one to taste like a stout, but it does. Aroma is roasted with a faint hint of lager yeast. Flavor is very similar...decent roasted character with only a little lager finish. Not much in the way of hop flavor but there is some lingering hop bitterness. Although a lot of what Rogue brews is over-priced, I like this one and the fact that they are using their own hops/barley.

Bottle. Pours a bit to motor-oilish to be true to style. More along the lines porter/stout, but an excellent beer nonetheless. Medium tan head, beautifully smoky, grainy scent. Flavor is not heavy or sweet - lightly nutty, mild chocolate notes, definite background of grassy, fruity hops. Great creaminess to the palate. All around, an excellent beer, very easy to drink with just the right amount of complexity.

22 oz. from Grocery Outlet. Pours "black" as if it weren’t a color but simply the absence of light. Tan foam covers the surface and sticks to the sides of my handled mason jar. This looks like no lager I’ve ever seen. Once I brewed a stout with blackstrap molasses. It turned out OK but had a weird metallic aroma that reminded me of my days as a convenience store cashier. At the end of the day my hands always smelled like dirty coins. This smells the same way. The roasted malts give the impression that this has "body" for days but that is simply not the case. The Risk malts make it full enough (though not too much) but the real surprise is the smoky flavor. This is more than just "roasted malts". This is "burned by a flamethrower malts" and it is not unwelcome.

Wow. This is from Rogue? 22 ounce bottle from BevMo. I find Rogue to be consistently good but not usually great. This is stellar!

Bomber. This is one of the best Rogues I’ve had. Pours black with a tan head that fades rapidly. Aromas of coffee, smoke, chocolate and yeast. Palate is pleasantly carbonated. Taste is mild and bready at first and then moves into smoke, nuts and chocolate with a bit of a citrus linger.

swanmann (665) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2010
An unmistakably lush, DARK chocolate brown brew with light brown, orange hued foam poured from the bottle. I smell chocolate, but my allergies are making it very difficult. It tastes like espresso, creamy, sweet and bitter. But the hops up front open the flavor wonderfully. The finish lingers deeply bittersweet. Yumm!
