COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s 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, you’ll 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.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2009
2009-06-12, bottle blind tasting at Papsø’s, 6-3-6-3-11=29
Black color. Papery aroma. Quite basic Stout, maybe smooth and creamy, with too much burnt malt, maybe in the end (that is even quite harsh), and too bitter.

2009-05-13, draught at Nørrebro Bryghus, Copenhagen, 5-4-6-2-12=29
Black color, solid big. Aroma of roasted malt and paper. Weak body, with a sharp roasted malt flavor, somehow rounded by a smooth mouthfeel, with a quite strong ending bitterness. Not bad, but without some real vibe that the Germans can give.
