UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Note: Fooled again by Rogue; this was for a bottle of Rogue Warrior Ale: It’s back. Bottle from Sondra. The blue band is red, and the rising sun is gone. The blue trim on the vest is now red - so it’s a two color label - three if you count white. Opaque brown color with a decent tan head. Smells of citrus hop, darker malt, and coffee? Medium plus body with chewy carbonation. Flavor is smooth toasted malt, deal of coffee, and arguably a bit of hop. Putting this in as an APA seems to have been ok in the beginning, but It’s a stout now. So I’m putting it in two places, and the admins can delete whichever rating they choose.Scopey (15471) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015

Bomber. Something of a mocha aroma. A nearly opaque brown color with a persevering tan head. Full bodied, moderately carbonated, nearly creamy. Starts with coffee, moves to near burnt malt. Sort of causes twinges in the mouth. There’s not a great deal of bitter, and the smooth finish is mostly toasted malt. It’s very good stout.
Cask at GBBF 2015. It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is soft, bitter-sweet, rich chocolate, coffee, fudge cake and icing sugar. The taste is rich, bitter-sweet, oily, cocoa, toasty, coffee grounds, earthy roast, mild acidity, umami and liquorice with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Works pretty well on cask. Smooth and easy-going, but not a whole lot to it. Pretty enjoyable anyhow. djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a very dark brown with a small frothy tan head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is roasted malt with chocolate and coffee. Decent spotty lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet malt with chocholate and coffee. Easy to drink a good stout from Rogue. Ratman197 (15216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bomber poured an opaque black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of milk chocolate, vanilla, light roastiness and light coffee with a smooth chocolatey finish. gunnfryd (15175) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2007

Tap at Bishop Arms, Copenhagen. Dark brown colour with a tan head. Aroma and flavour of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and licorice. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2006
A Black very classic stout. But not boring at all. A good coffee smell, rich roasted almost burned malt flavour. Nice bitter hop and burned malt finish. Just as we like it !! DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 16, 2012
[5/9/12] Draught at Ølbaren in Copenhagen. Black with a beige head. Roasty coffee-ish aroma. Flavor of roasted grains, some coffee and a drier finish. Medium-bodied. Tmoney99 (14860) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2005
Draft. This is good, but this is the first time I drank a beer and was thinking of a chocolate breakfast bar. Clearly a sweet stout with a great roasted coffee, chocolate and nut flavor. Good brew. Stuu666 (14563) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2015
