Bonster (182) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Bottle from my beerguy. Black-brown body with a dark tan head. Big roasted malt aroma, cocoa, and a hint of scorched coffee. Heavy roasted bitter flavor, smoke, burnt grains, and cola-ish taste. Decent.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thick cocoa head. Lacy speckles coat the glass. Nose is coffee, mild chocolate, hay and a touch of smokiness. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Taste is burnt sugar, Baker’s chocolate and lime.

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.

Bomber. Pours very dark, with very dark head. Smells like toast, burnt notes, chocolate. Tastes like chocolate and coffee grounds. Some grassy notes. Low carbonation, no burn to it.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Compliments of doboy (thanks again Ed), pours almost completely black forming a dark, dark brown foamy head. Aroma somewhat smoky, toasted malts, light hoppage and sprng water. Flavour of bitter front with a malty herring bone character. Not a fan of the style, but tasty.

lalu (40) - Laval, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 1, 2010
Bomber.Pour is oily black liquid with the darkest head i have ever seen on a beer. Smell is roasted grain and coffeish.La ces the glass and probably colors the digestive tract in black. Tasted was a lot of burnt or extremely roasted grain,coffee,nuts. Oily texture with medium carbonation,some lasting bitterness from the hops and roasted grain.I am not a big fan of black beers but i was surprised that this one was drinkable considering the deep color. Not bad,not great.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottled. More or less black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, mild coffee, some slight ashes as well as some toffee and sweet maltiness. Flavour is roasted malts, quite big on the bitter notes, mild ashes as well as some sweet malts to it. Quite nice bitter finish. Not your typical Schwarzbier, but still a pleasant brew.
