Dirtoir Black Lager like many of Rogue's fine brews has won numerous accolades including the 2010 World Beer Awards Best Lager. Brewed In Oregon and one of four Chatoe Rogue beers available year round. Rogue always uses nothing but the best ingredients grown at their own farms.

Let's not forget without farmer's hard work and dedication we would not have the all important grains that get turned into delicious beer! Rogue gives a shout out to farmers right on the label of their Chatoe Rogue Dirtoir Black Lager! Being from Ohio, home to many farmers, I would like to second that thought. Here's to the farmers who grow our food and turn the seed into all those lovely grains that go into beer like this black lager. Now it's time to enjoy the fruits....errrrr....grains of their labor!

A quick pour into the million dollar glass and we have a dark, dark eclipse of brew with a creamy, light brown, 2 finger head. The head is lasting and leaves a fair amount of lace on the sides of the glass.

A swirl and a whiff of the black brew wafts aromas of molasses, chocolate, coffee and roasty malts.


Medium bodied. Sweet and malty with hints of chocolate and traces of coffee bitterness. The finish is light sweet chocolate with a touch of hops bitterness.


Overall a great well put together beer. It is one of those beers that seem to evolve and change characteristics as you work through the glass. Well balanced and drinkable. I would definitely buy this one again.

Dirtoir Black Lager and a little Rage Against the Machine.  A fine pairing!

Musical Pairing: Rogue says "Grow the Revolution!" What better music to revolt by than Rage Against the Machine, "Take the Power Back"! That's right! It's time to rise up against bad beer and declare freedom for our taste buds! No more watered down, flavorless, mass produced weak liquid masquerading as beer! Stop believing the "In House Drive By" and buying the beer that the set commands ya! Wake Up and put your fist in the air (careful don't spill your beer)! Freeeeeeeeeeeeeedom!!!!!!

      You may have heard of O.A.R. because they went to Ohio State.

      I've heard of that band. Never really heard any tunes from them though. This one has a little hops bitterness but not enough to to turn the non hophead away!

      Nice Hug. Since the black lagers aren't hoppy, I like them. I'll have to try this one. There is a group O.A.R. (Of A Revolution), wonder if there is any connection to grow a revolution (I doubt it, but I bet O.A.R. drinks their share of beer.)
