Roasting Hops bring out all the smell of its close cousins, they burn like cigarettes and the ash can color the beer. It also changes the flavor of the hops to a spicer note.
Do you get the same level of bitterness from roasted hops as unroasted?

If you're going to make that stretch, oil is also solar energy.

First solar homebrew? It looks cool but not sure about that claim! Here in Portland there are a few rigs for solar heated water, and at our organic brew fest this year (and I believe last?) we had brewers using them to do brewing demos.

Edit: Ok maybe he is the first guy to sunburn his hops !

Basically he said, "man that is good, tastes like roasted hops" after taking a sip of Spaten Optimator
