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.

The best black lager I have ever tried. Pouring this, I really thought it was a stout. Had the head and body of any stout I’ve tried. Pours thick dark black with a nice tan head. Smells of hardwood smoke, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Tastes of smoke, wood, coffee, mocha, and some chocolate ice cream in the background. Awesome brew.

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!

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.

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

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 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

varanid99 (609) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2014
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

Malty, chocolaty aroma, some coffee as well, slight sweet note. Pours pitch black, pretty much opaque, thin tan head. Full, rich malty flavor; chocolate and roast, coffee, caramel, moderate bitterness. Definitely a break from the traditional schwarzbier in the big malt presence and hefty body, but a really tasty beer nonetheless.

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
