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.

Bottle from Ledgers Liquors. Itís sublabeled MIdnight Sessions. Same ABV. Black, black, black, with a passing tan head. Aroma of dark malt and coffee. Near fullbodied with creamy carbonation. It thins as the carbonation leaves. Itís got coffee and burnt toast. Makes me think somewhat of the old, long gone, Guinness. Burnt. Yeah. Great finish. Do these guys ever make a mediocre beer?

mcberko (13483) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
On tap at Urban Family Public House, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and some bittersweet cocoa. Flavour is pretty subdued, with dry bitter cocoa, bready malts Ė pretty bland / flat, with no life / body. Whether this is the norm or not, Iím not sure. Disappointing stuff.
