MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle purchased at Rozi’s in Lakewood. Aroma is a nice light chocolaty malt with a little bit of acidity behind it -like a dark chocolate would have. Flavor is much the same way. Like some strong dry coffee, it really tastes dry with a good chocolate malt flavor to it.

650 ml. bottle split by 3 @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Presumably some years on the bottle but I cannot find any date so… Black solid mocha; Nose is lightly metallic soy sauce, umami malts with light mocha. Taste is lightly metallic, soy, surprisingly thick & substantial chocolate body, light charcoal, coffee, dark chocolate. Body feels a bit thinned out but still very substantial. Lovely Schwarzbier. Ingredients mention Free Range Costal Water (seriously, free range water,…. Hahaha).

Muito boa. Um pouco ácida mas equilibra com o amargor e o saber torrado de malte. Surpreendeu o creme muito alto e muuuuito persistente.

Tognetta (494) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAY 15, 2015
Linda cerveja negra, espuma marrom em média quantidade, cremosa, bom lacing, pequenas bolhas irregulares por toda a superfície. Logo ao servir já é possível notar o aroma licoroso, achocolatado, adocicado, em menor quantidade café, cacau; amargor perceptível mas menos intenso, palha seca. Com o aumento da temperatura exalou um odor que lembra xarope, e o chocolate ficou mais intenso. Corpo leve/médio, carbonação média. Paladar bastante equilibrado/prazeiroso, com aftertaste amargo de grãos torrados. Uma boa SchwarzBeer.

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 years ago from notes. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small tan head. The aroma had roasted malts, coffee, earthy hops, and some orange citrus in the background. The flavor had earthy and citrusy hops, roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Medium bodied with good flavor; one of the better beers I’ve had from Rogue in a while although I probably wouldn’t revisit this.

On draft. Rich black with thick tan head and strong lacing. Medium body with roasty coffee bean palate. Not sweet, not sour, a little bitter on the finish, from the coffee. Decent.

chinchill (3356) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2014
650 ml bottle served in a pint glass (from notes). Pour looks a bit like used motor oil; this is a truly black beer. Completely opaque with an unusually dark brown head that reduces at a moderate rate to a thin ring. Aroma: Not strong. Primary component is dark roasted malt. Very sweet, with lots of chocolate/smoky notes. Toasted malt and burnt toast, powdery cocoa, hints of coffee, and molasses. T - Some sweetness initially, but certainly not as sweet as a typical German schwarzbier, and the finish is mildly bitter with a clear coffee note. Hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Mainly, there’s plenty of rich dark roasted malt flavor that is pronounced and lasting but not challenging. M - nice medium-full body with some crispness from carbonation and/or hops. O - recommended for fans of schwarzbier who also like an imperial stout: This schwarzbier heads in that direction.
