Pours a dark brown color with medium light brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt, mild chocolate, and light coffee notes. Even a bit of smoke sneaks by. Taste is rich chocolate, light roasted coffee, caramel malt, earthy hops. Very creamy and rich, this reminded me a lot of Dark Helmet from Titletown.

Pours out really black with very small bubbles and 1 finger of tan creamy suds sit on the top. Lacing clings nicely as you sip the beer, and sticks to the mustache (save for later) As the suds subside I smell dark chocolate and creamy, burnt malt and a slight smokey aroma. While there is some dark fruit, its the yeast that burns the nose. No alcohol detected here. Taste is coffee and bitter charred malt. No alcohol here. While this could be a tad bit sweeter and less one-sided , it still has a great flavor. Mouth feel is clean and refreshing. Rogue Rocked another one.

pours black with a very nice light brown head. aroma is dominated by roasted malt but there is a hint of lager yeast and grassy hops. mouthful is bold and has up front roasted malt and smoothness, transitions to a bitter finish and a lager yeast. i like how much is going on with this beer at a sessionable 5%....

Leighton (20519) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle. Reminded me of an imperial stout. Poured tar black, thick, with a beige head. Big nose of roasted malts, coffee and light chocolate. Very rich flavor. Sweet malts blend nicely with some smoky notes. Medium to big in body with moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth. Lingering Mocha aftertaste. I want to have this beer again.

Black pour with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is full of roasted malt and coffee. Some bits if bitter chocolate too. Flavor is loaded with coffee and bitter chocolate. This is really well done.

Bomber from Whole Foods in DC. Pours a rich deep black with a light brown head, looks like an imperial stout. Nose is roasty and full of a coffee vibe. Taste is sweet, roasty and coffeetastic. Hops are pretty present, overall this is a damn good Schwarz.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2010 I certainly didnt expect this one to taste like a stout, but it does. Aroma is roasted with a faint hint of lager yeast. Flavor is very similar...decent roasted character with only a little lager finish. Not much in the way of hop flavor but there is some lingering hop bitterness. Although a lot of what Rogue brews is over-priced, I like this one and the fact that they are using their own hops/barley.

Spelt (232) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2010
I really like this. An impenetrable black oily liquid with a thick cappacino head. Aromas of fresh-tilled soil, charcoal and bittersweet chocolate. Char picked up more intensely on tasting. Sweetness well balanced by light but longlasting bitterness. Very creamy, luxuriant mouthfeel. Residual sugars left my lips sticky but brew does not come across as sweet. Excellent beer.

22oz bottle This is a nice looking pour: jet black with a long lasting frothy tan head. Very nice roasty/chocolatey aroma followed by a medium bodied, roasty malty flavored beer. Very well done.

Bottle shared by superdave -- thanks! Pours a charcoal black color with a trim beige head. Smells of toasted malt, barley, dry hops, and faint coffee. Tastes of each, but with a unwashed earthy (dirtoir indeed) quality that really didnt sit right with me. Not a fan.
