This is a lovely surprise. I was expecting, based on the label of "black lager" it would be thin and weak like most beers advertised as "black xyz:" thick flavorful wonderful.

A gorgeous looking beer. I?d give it a 6 for appearance if it let me as I don?t think i?ve. Ever seen a beer behave this way upon pouring. Almost like it is creaming bubbling up in the bottle. Dark black, big big big tan head. Mighty bubbles. Great legs. Aroma is mineral, chocolates. Taste is the same with some toasted barley. Creamy feel, with some zip. A very nice beer. Very different. Very interesting. Only "downer" is that I think 22 oz. is really the limit on what you can stand because of how rich it is. This is from 3.13.14.

Tap at rnh. Black brown. Strong aroma of smoke and roasted Malts, a bit of chocolate. Nice malty taste, campfire, very solid.

Dark black beer with a milk chocolate head that sicks to the glass. Aroma is bitter and sour almost wine like with chocolate notes. Rich with dark chocolate flavors with a heavy malt profile. A great beer that I will drink often and a style I will find more of.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle. Poured black with a thick chocolate brown head. Very stout like. Nose has big notes of coffee and roasted malt. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel and soft carbonation. Flavor is dark roasted malts and coffee, light grassy hops, a touch of toasted grain, slight ash, and caramel. Finishes moderately sweet with some chocolate.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle from WineWorks in Marlton, NJ. Clear deep mahogany pour with a short quickly dissipating light brown head and very little lacing. Light roasty aroma. Flavor of dark chocolate and a touch of molasses. Some hoppy bitterness but quite restrained. Thin texture but, after all, it is a lager. Mildly smokey finish.

Daytonbeer (726) - Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Pours jet balck with aroma of expresso and chocolate. Taste of cocao and coffee. Very smoth. A great black lager.

swanmann (719) - 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!

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle. Deep brown color with a medium head and residual lacing. Flavor is roasted and chocolate malts, soft and cereal like. Light bodied but immense in flavor. This is quite the creation, but comes across perfectly. Finish is dry with just a hint of hops buried in there. One of the best Rogue beers they’ve made.

Now this is a quality brew. Smells, looks, and tastes like an imperial stout. If you poured this blind and told me it was a stout I would have no problem believing it. I’m not going to complain about it being miscategorized, just going to sit back and sip the delicious goodness. The most beautiful creamy and velvety mouthfeel I’ve had in any beer. Super deep roasty flavors. Great job Rogue.
