Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Enjoyed from a 22oz bomber in a stemless wine goblet. As expected, the beer pours a jet black color, with a moderate to large medium tan head. The nose carries some subtle notes of grassy hops, straw-like malt notes, some dark chocolate notes, and some toasted malt scents. The palate is carbonated like a kolsch or a pilsner, not off-style or unpleasant, but always a bit of a surprise from a beer with such a lofty SRM. The flavors seem to resemble an American stout more than the moderately malty flavors of classic Teutonic examples of the style. Roasted notes up front, a slight straw-like malt flavor, assertive bitterness and charactered hop flavors on the back end. The finish leaves a lingering bitterness and roasted note in the mouth, but is otherwise clean. Overall, not unpleasant or poorly conceived, but missing something in the German character malt department that, if traded with a little less bitterness, could elevate the beers enjoyability.

Bottle- pours jet black, brown dense ring of foam head. Nose is malts- chocolate, roasted coffee beans, resin and dark fruits. More coffee, milk chocolate, subtle nuttiness and resin hop bitterness on the finish. Rich an full bodied. Quite good for Rogue ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Dark black beer with a milk chocolate head that sicks to the glass. Aroma is bitter and sour almost wine like with chocolate notes. Rich with dark chocolate flavors with a heavy malt profile. A great beer that I will drink often and a style I will find more of.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Bottle. Jet black hue with a wonderfully fluffy and persistent brown head. Nose is big roast and grains with a clean lager profile, hints of earthy hops. Flavor is a clean grainy malts with a touch of melanoidins, roast, and coffee/cocoa, earthy-grassy hops provide modest bitterness in the middle, finishes clean and slightly sweet. Medium body, smooth carbonation, watery body texture with frothy head. Super-easy to drink lager with an impressive roasty malt profile.

Pours black with a small brown head. Smells of caramel, bread, floral. Taste is mildly bitter and sweet, predominantly the roasted malts - chocolate/coffee

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours a thick, opaque dark espresso brown with thick tan-tinged head. Aroma is very earthy, a mix of rich soil with chocolate coffee. Flavor is roasted malts, cacao beans and bready. Body is fairly light with quite a bit of carbonation.

This is a lovely surprise. I was expecting, based on the label of "black lager" it would be thin and weak like most beers advertised as "black xyz:" thick flavorful wonderful.

A gorgeous looking beer. I?d give it a 6 for appearance if it let me as I don?t think i?ve. Ever seen a beer behave this way upon pouring. Almost like it is creaming bubbling up in the bottle. Dark black, big big big tan head. Mighty bubbles. Great legs. Aroma is mineral, chocolates. Taste is the same with some toasted barley. Creamy feel, with some zip. A very nice beer. Very different. Very interesting. Only "downer" is that I think 22 oz. is really the limit on what you can stand because of how rich it is. This is from 3.13.14.

Pours almost black, with a dark tan head. Aroma is malty and dark, with hints of chocolate. Taste is rich and malty, with hops, chocolate, and coffee. Nice hoppy background. Smooth, well blended, and quite drinkable. Thumbs way up!
