A: Pours a jet black with a creamy, lingering tan head.

S: Aromas of vanilla bean, leather, dark chocolate, cream, roasted grain, grass, herbs, caramel, and lemon take a little while to express themselves on the nose.

T: Smooth, integrated notes of caramel, cream, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted grain, leather, vanilla bean, kola nut, minerals, herbs, grass, and lemon wash across the palate. The finish is moderately hoppy and roasty, offering notes of leather, roasted grain, lemon, and grass.

M: Full-bodied and relatively dry. Carbonation is crisp and firm.

O: Obviously, this is not an orthodox schwarzbier, but it is a pretty much exceptional New World take on the style. This lager is proof that Rogue still pumps out worthwhile beers with regularity.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass. Amazing in its opacity, pitch black with no light getting through the murk, capped by a rich cafe latte-colored head. Nose features some very pleasing malt acrobatics, prunes, raisins, dark roast coffee, a whiff of caramel, and some earthy herbal hops. Palate includes all these elements plus some dry chocolate flakes and light ash for good measure, starts sweet and roasty, almost stout-like before going very crisp and dry for the finish, as per the style. Nice creamy mouthfeel adds to the stout-like vibe, as does the low key carbonation. Some noble-type hops add a little pepper and vanilla perhaps. Great stuff and manages to deliver more robust flavors than maybe one would expect from a lager of this ilk. Is is TOO sweet? Perhaps. Here's where I channel my Micheal Jackson-like disregard for uber-rigid style guidelines in favor of just enjoying the show.
