look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.
