FatPhil (15822) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2013
Tap (CWAF2013, Sat)
Rich roasty aroma, a touch of coffee. Thick and smooth in the mouth, maybe oily. Brown tight head. Very rich and also highly drinkable. So full and flavoursome it comes over as a great US porter, rather than a great US schwarz. Pleasant hops give it some bite too. Yum.

bhensonb (14983) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Bomber from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours quite black with a huge, foamy dark tan head. Smells like chocolate. Medium body plus with smooth carbonation. Flavor starts chocolate, then goes rather gritty, and almost smoky with coffee. It is much more bitter than not, and it has a really nifty mouthfeel in the finish. Wonder if I imagined the smoke. I think its pretty complex for a lager, and it drinks very easily. Bitter is starting to show up on the sides of my tongue, and other things are going on too. Good job from Rogue.

Tmoney99 (14287) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout drinkable brew.

Scopey (14253) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Thistle News. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, tar, cocoa, coffee and soy sauce. The taste is bitter, roasty, coffee, pepper, toast, mild acidity, tar and light soy sauce with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bad, Im just not a big fan of the soy sauce character kicking about.
