Best black lager ever. Looks and tastes like coffee stout but smoother and lighter. Drink all day every day.

Poured into a lager glass. Pouredd dark with a thick tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is of roasted barley and coffee. Flavor has more dark chocolate and coffee. Palate is medium bodied but still slightly thick and chewy. This is the best schwarzbier I’ve tasted yet.. Doesn’t finish very dry. Delicious!

Bottle @ salone del gusto. It pours black with a huge head on top. Liquorice, coffee, caramel and many other things. Best lager ever! I just can’t get enough

Nice aroma, dark color and a chocolate sort of taste. Smooth and thick in one’s mouth. A very fine beer.

Cybercat (5165) - Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours an opaque sable, nearly black, with a very thick chocolaty-tan head that hangs around for a while. Rich, smoky aroma is like a fine roast coffee with a firm undertone of unsweetened chocolate and just a touch of molasses - very tempting! Flavor is smoky and oily, slightly sweet, rather like a high-grade mocha. Texture is very smooth, somewhat fizzy, with a subtle fine graininess to it. Definitely worthy.

Impeccable offering from Rogue Farms. The malt and hop balance in this one is ideal for my personal preferences. I loved the flavor, texture, and snap hop finish. Can’t wait to try again.

On tap at Cookie. Very tasty. Aromas of roast, coffee, and liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

nearbeer (4917) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2010
650 ml. Opaque ebony with a lasting 1/4 inch of cream. Nose of cocoa, caramel, cappuccino and cream. Drippy, sticky lace everywhere. Flavors of semi sweet chocolate, espresso, nutty caramel, and hints of salty hickory smoke. Medium-heavy body is well-balanced, smooth and creamy with just a little too much frothiness. Great brew, the lagering really smooths the rough edges of the roast very nicely.

Appearance: jet black; two-finger thick, creamy head the color of chocolate milk. Aroma: chocolate, freshly roasted coffee, hint of licorice. Taste: bittersweet chocolate-covered espresso beans, bit of black licorice, and a hint of toasted black bread. Finish: smooth, clean, a little dry, with lingering roasty and chocolate notes. Notes: This beer was a WOW for me. Looked like an imperial stout, smelled like a porter, and tasted like a perfect schwarzbier. Palate was light but not watery; incredibly drinkable. The best schwarzbier I’ve ever had, and one of the top beers I’ve ever had-period.
