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!

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!

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%....

Bottle thanks to Andy. Dark black with thin off white head. Taste is all Smokey malt. Kind of like drinking a BBQ. Interesting and tasty.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Black, imposing body with a ring of tan head. Aroma is very roasty, bitter-sweet chocolate and hints of some sweetness. Roast chocolate malt, day-old coffee and a hint of smoke (burnt malt?) dominate the initial flavors. Bitter chocolate, espresso and a light hop/coffee bitter, lengthy finish. Thin body.

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.

brigg (508) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 8, 2012
(Bottle) Black body with a dark brown head that starts off huge and creamy but recedes quickly into large bubbles and a web of lace om the glass. Aroma of strong roasted character, chocolate, and bitter. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet but also bitter; lots of roasted flavor, chocolate, some coffee. Medium to full body (leaning toward medium) and full of soft carbonation.
