Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Flavor is coffee and roasted malts, but otherwise kind of boring. Still a very solid beer.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2010
Pours pitch black. Moderate dark tan head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malt and a hint of caramel sweetness. Flavor is noticeably more bitter, essentially replacing the caramel with lots of coffee and burnt toast. Surprisingly creamy mouthfeel, with some bitterness and alchol in the finish. OK, but probably not something I’d go out of my way to get.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Enjoyed from a 22oz bomber in a stemless wine goblet. As expected, the beer pours a jet black color, with a moderate to large medium tan head. The nose carries some subtle notes of grassy hops, straw-like malt notes, some dark chocolate notes, and some toasted malt scents. The palate is carbonated like a kolsch or a pilsner, not off-style or unpleasant, but always a bit of a surprise from a beer with such a lofty SRM. The flavors seem to resemble an American stout more than the moderately malty flavors of classic Teutonic examples of the style. Roasted notes up front, a slight straw-like malt flavor, assertive bitterness and charactered hop flavors on the back end. The finish leaves a lingering bitterness and roasted note in the mouth, but is otherwise clean. Overall, not unpleasant or poorly conceived, but missing something in the German character malt department that, if traded with a little less bitterness, could elevate the beer’s enjoyability.

Bottle, shared with Tim & Jacob. Very black, dark tan head. Nose is roasty & slightly burnt, a little cherry/caramel malt - almost milky. Flavor is roast & coffee malts, caramel, some cherry. Nice stuff!

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Black with a big dark brown head. Light roast and hints of coffee and a touch of fruity yeast in the aroma. Faint sweetness followed by a slight burnt coffee flavor. Some light undistinguished fruit flavors in the background. Pretty solid.

Dfonorow (1327) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Pours black with a chocolate colored head. Aroma is of yeast, and roasted malts... not much else going on. Taste is pretty mellow with a slight hoppy bitterness and heavy yeast flavor. Overall its a decent black lager, but nothing amazing.

Glouglouburp (5934) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2010
In short: A very roasted black beer with a strong coffee character. Straightforward but good
How: Bottles, 22oz. A few times. This rating for a bottle (or two) consumed fresh a few months ago soon after the beer release. Tasting session with Montreal crew.
The look: Black body topped by a tan ring of foam
In long: Nose is highly roasted with roasted coffee beans notes. Taste is more of the same. This is just a simple beer with plenty of highly roasted (almost burnt) dark malts that brings a good roasted coffee beans flavor. A very light cacao powder sensation, a tiny bit of acidity. As it is the case with most highly roasted beers, this one feels rather dry and not much sweetness it feels quite dry. I would have never guessed that this is a lager/ Schwarzbier. But the question remains. What is a Dirtoir? I googled it and found nothing. Is it even a word? It probably doesn’t exist. Maybe it is a building where we teach young chickens to dance ballet, since that probably does not exist either.
