An unmistakably lush, DARK chocolate brown brew with light brown, orange hued foam poured from the bottle. I smell chocolate, but my allergies are making it very difficult. It tastes like espresso, creamy, sweet and bitter. But the hops up front open the flavor wonderfully. The finish lingers deeply bittersweet. Yumm!

Wow. This is from Rogue? 22 ounce bottle from BevMo. I find Rogue to be consistently good but not usually great. This is stellar!

Prokroustis (744) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - DEC 20, 2012
Pitch black body, dark brown head. Very nice malty aroma with smoke, coffee, caramel, licorice and chocolate. Medium body with decent carbonation. Excellent roasted malty flavour with smoke, coffee and chocolate. Great.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle. Poured black with a thick chocolate brown head. Very stout like. Nose has big notes of coffee and roasted malt. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel and soft carbonation. Flavor is dark roasted malts and coffee, light grassy hops, a touch of toasted grain, slight ash, and caramel. Finishes moderately sweet with some chocolate.

GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle from WineWorks in Marlton, NJ. Clear deep mahogany pour with a short quickly dissipating light brown head and very little lacing. Light roasty aroma. Flavor of dark chocolate and a touch of molasses. Some hoppy bitterness but quite restrained. Thin texture but, after all, it is a lager. Mildly smokey finish.

demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Now this is a quality brew. Smells, looks, and tastes like an imperial stout. If you poured this blind and told me it was a stout I would have no problem believing it. Im not going to complain about it being miscategorized, just going to sit back and sip the delicious goodness. The most beautiful creamy and velvety mouthfeel Ive had in any beer. Super deep roasty flavors. Great job Rogue.

Daytonbeer (729) - Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Pours jet balck with aroma of expresso and chocolate. Taste of cocao and coffee. Very smoth. A great black lager.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle. Deep brown color with a medium head and residual lacing. Flavor is roasted and chocolate malts, soft and cereal like. Light bodied but immense in flavor. This is quite the creation, but comes across perfectly. Finish is dry with just a hint of hops buried in there. One of the best Rogue beers theyve made.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JUL 5, 2013
Bottle sample. Black color with a small mocha head. Aromas of green coffee, cocoa, fresh dirt, earth, carobs, roast and faint manure. Dark malts flavor, with bitter chocolate, light smoke and medium bitterness. Medium bodied, interesting and very good.

Pdubyah (702) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 26, 2013
Pours like it should be treacle, the thick brown head soon fades away, and what youre left with is nothing at all like a Lager is expected to be. Its light but full bodies and finishes dry. The cocoa/coffee makes this a nice drinkable beer, but I found an underlying sour note that didnt upset me, I just noticed it was there. This is a bit good, and Ill be buying more.
