Bottle sample. Black color with a small mocha head. Aromas of green coffee, cocoa, fresh dirt, earth, carobs, roast and faint manure. Dark malts flavor, with bitter chocolate, light smoke and medium bitterness. Medium bodied, interesting and very good.

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

650 ml bottle. Pours a dark black with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor is slightly sweet, dark roasted malt and a smooth bitter finish. Excellent Schwarzbier.

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.
