This is the worst beer I’ve ever tasted from Rogue. I get the concept, but don’t think it comes together well at all. I do like the color, but the result of that darkness is a bitter grainy beer. Aroma is extremely earthy, and any hops are blunted by the thick earthy maltiness. Flavor has a metallic character followed by bitter coffee. Won’t be trying this one ever again.

Dark brown body with a dark brown head. Very deep natural flavors including chocolate sugars heavier roasted malts. A very organic chocolate in light cream flavor with a very bittersweet finish. The body is full tilt! Been a while since I had a great Rogue Beer!

Excellent black beer. Opaque in appearance with a thick, tan head. The nose and palate are dominated by roasted malts. Espresso and hazelnut flavors coat the palate. Long, dry finish.

pours a thickish black with a little chocolate head, roasty chocolate and cocoa aroma. Light mouthfeel with some chocolate notes. Nothing too spectacular.

Pours deep and black with deep brown head. Tinge of red. Smells of deep roasted malts and coffee bean. Slight rasberry. Rich and nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.

swanmann (604) - 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!

ADesenberg (594) - 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.

Bomber pours black with a dark reddish brown head. Aroma is of roasted sweet malt and dark fruits. Taste is slightly smokey and roasty toasty malt, toasted biscuit, and balanced with a bitter hop resin and bitter chocolate. The body is what makes this beer, very pleasing mouth feel, almost creamy but not to full, with a smokey bitter finish. Phenominal brew
