mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Did not expect it to look like this, I expected a lager to be clear and light in color. Deep dark black with thick tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, coffee, and a little sweet bread. Very crisp flavor, earthy and carbon, light coffee, chocolate. Medium carbonation. Just a bit of grassy hop bitterness and then some carbon in the finish. Nice, a little too light.

DuffMan (10150) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours an opaque black with a dense dark brown head. This looks imperial, even though I know it isnt. Aromas of charred malt, dusty chocolate, and coffee. Flavourful burnt malt, coffee and dark chocolate, bitter roasty finish. This really satisfies without clobbering you with high ABV.

[A] Almost smells like a stout, for being listed as a shwarz. With coffee, chocolate, roast. Smoke comes through very light. Burnt. Back to back with Point 2012. Lager yeast somewhat buried. [A] Very oily, thick, impressive looking black pour. Beautiful frothy brown head. Stout-like in this department. Appealing. [F] Chocolatey. Rosy. Roasty. Some meaty, fiery, hammy smokiness. Char. Bitter. Alot moreso than the 2012. Earthy. Flavorful. [P] Extremely drinkable. Thin. Nice tingle. Everything comes together well. The hop varieties dont really loan any citrus or extreme bitter. [O] Very very nice beer. Liked this one. Not the most complex brew Ive ever had, but quite excellent. $4 is a steal for this. Just. Totally impressed. Rogue does a good brew, but I dont often repeat. Will have to buy another few while theyre available. Especially with estate-grown ingredients. Homegrown. Yum.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Straight black pour with a lively brown mountainous head. Lacing is sticky and thick. The aroma is bursting with roast and lactic sugars with caramel and biscuit taking up a nice presence in the back. An almost smokey note is presented as the brew warms- perhaps earthen coffee as well. The flavor is predominantly roasty at first, with earthy peat and chocolaty coffee following. The complexity isnt amazing, but the arrangement it. Very nicely done. The palate is medium bodied with a roast-chalk dryish finish, demonstrating low effervescence and excellent quaffability. An amazing example of the style.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Bomber was $6.49 at Pappys Beer Store in Rose Hill, Virginia. Pours jet black and viscous, like a stout. Large tightknit cocoa head is creamy and lasts the journey. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma is full of dark roasty notes of dark chocolate, roasted almonds, and freshly brewed coffee. Creamy and coating, almost full bodied. The dark roasty notes also dominate the flavor profile. Coffee and bittersweet chocolate are present throughout. Spicy and earthy hop notes emerge in the middle. A nice smoked almond note adds some interest. Quite odd for a schwarzbier. Seems almost like a stout. Enjoyable.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 20, 2010
(22 oz. bottle from Rockland Foodservice) Sure seems like a stout...Pours thick and black, inky, smooth and dark with several fingers of rocky mocha head. Rather awesome-looking except for the droopy head. Aroma of molasses, chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel smooth and thick, lightly milk-shakey and perhaps a touch of chalk in the finish. Flavor of dark chocolate and coffee with very light hint of roasty molasses. Lingering bitter aftertaste. A little cleaner tasting perhaps but flavor profile leans more towards stout than schwarz.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Flavor is coffee and roasted malts, but otherwise kind of boring. Still a very solid beer.

aracauna (3576) - Georgia, USA - MAR 17, 2010
I was expecting something lighter when I bought this. Dont get me wrong. Im perfectly happy with what this turned out to be, its just that basically this seems very much like a very robust stout recipe where they just used lager yeast instead of ale yeast. The body is a little thinner than the murky, pitch black body and brown foam suggested, but this is still a malt monster of a beer.
