Nate (3994) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2010
From bomber. Black strap molasses, light coffee and smoke, with some acidict tang and burnt malt. Roasted barley, dark chocolate. Dark, dark black with thin foamy dark brown lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with some malt sweetness, molasses, chocolate, and mild burnt coffee. Acidic tang from carbonation and black malt bitterness. Medium bitter hop finish, with some deep roasted bitterness, too. Thick bitter coating on the tongue at the finish into the aftertaste, but countered by just a bit of residual sweetness. Big flavor on this, but over the top. Would pair well with some food.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bomber shared by the Danker. Pours very dark brown, opaque, with almost no head. Aromas of soy sauce, cocoa, piney hops, chocolate, and plums and raisins. Flavor is smoky oak, sour cocoa, coffee, and dark fruit. Smooth and creamy with low/medium carbonation. Nice one; this would go well with sushi...maybe some unagi. Thanks Dane!

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Finally, a rogue beer that is worth the goddamn pricetag. Beautiful near black pour with garnet highlights and creamy big brown head. Nose is a little on the weak side, but munich malts and toast and somewhat marzen character. Flavor is nutty, and biscuit, and dark roasty, but with a fair amount of spicy hop balance. Lingering astringency, but pleasant. Nice schwarz.

Mjollnir (394) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2010
650mL bottle. Pours opaque black with a small dark tan head that quickly settles to a ring. Aromas of malt, roast, chocolate, nuts, and something slightly savoury. Mild malty sweetness, mild bitterness, slightly roasty, some chocolate. Light-medium bodied, average carbonation, very creamy fairly dry with a lingering roasty finish.

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 (3607) - 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!
