COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís not often that a great summer swell coincides with a full moon, but when they collide, nature affords us a rare opportunity to paddle out long after everyone has called it a day. These moments are a solitary pursuit with empty lineups, but those who carve graceful lines under a full moon understand how things can be dark lonely and rewarding at the same time. So next time you paddle in from an overcrowded beach break, remember that nothing tastes better than a cold beer after a session. We suggest a glass of this smooth roasty black lager for contemplating empty lineups and waves that go on for days. Most likely, youíll long for epic summer swells under moon lit sessions opening the doors to isolation and empty secret spots of an age trying to pass us by.
Note: Formerly Midnight Sessions Lager.

1 pint bottle, dark pour, light coffee espresso bean flavor. Smells about the same, almost like a light dark. Smooth, good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ahh... Lager. There is just something so relaxing about lager, isnít there?

Pours a very thin looking black and forms a light brown head which doesnít last all that long. Aromas of roast and some cocoa. Taste is just pure relaxation... Subtle, supple, succulent. Light roast. So good. So very, very good.

Malty aroma with roast and nuts. Flavor is sweet and smoky, with a bittersweet finish. Pretty standard stuff but pretty good.

onceblind (4067) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2013
Black with a rocky beige head. Dry nutty and biscuity malty nose with notes of chocolaty roast and dry cracker. Flavor is light and dry with roasty notes of dry unsweet cocoa, cracker yeast notes, and a dry slightly metallic earthy hoppiness. Un exciting.

DocJitsu (953) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours an opaque black. No head at all. Mouthfeel is wet with slight carbonation. It couldíve been a bit creamier. Aroma is pretty disappointing. Smoky like a burnt piece of toast. Pretty weak flavor of dark roast malt. Some underlying notes of plasticky cream. Iíll never make this mistake again.

Bottle - Pours black with a big tan head. Nose is coca and espresso with a dark nutty roasted malt. Smoky, roasty malt taste, with a nutty finish and a tiny bit of sweetness. Lightly warming, thin and smooth. Excellent stuff.
