Rather off for a Schwarzbier, tastes far too much like a porter, not a bad thing at all, just does not taste like a Schwarzbier.

Eructoblaster (3397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011
Sample at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal). Opaque black body with a thin beige foamy head and low carbonation. Wonderful, complex malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee and chocolate hints. Taste is well balanced. It carries grainy and coffeeish notes. Ends with a good bitter/roasty finish. Well done!

Sample draft at 2012 Columbia World Beer Festival. Dark black with thick brown head. Roasted, charcoal malt with some hop flavor as well. Looks and acts like a stout except a little hoppier and a little thinner. Very good.

drjay44 (2996) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2012
650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, lasting, dark beige head, with extensive lacing, over a dark brown (SRM 35) body...nose is cereal, coffee, heavy roasted malts....taste is cereal, coffee, hint of chocolate, cocoa, dry throughout, finishing with light bitterness....mouth feel light, carbonation medium. This meet the style, but may a a bit too rich and roasty as it comes close to Porter like in its flavors. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

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.
