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.

Dogbrick (11338) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2011
This brew pours dark brown with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and a bit of smoke, plus a bit of hops. Medium body with a roasty malt character backed up by notes of cocoa, hops and a touch of charcoal. The finish is roasty with a hoppy aftertaste. Well done overall.

Sammy (11076) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
I like the style, and buying the bomber at Gordon’s in Watham, I was a bottle past my 12-packer for the plane. Hence an enjoyable and informative sharing with Jeff at Jaspar’s in Nashua. Roasty aroma, black body with permanent off-white little head, with a great drinkability, and this is 10 minutes in the fridge on a warm day. Balanced with a tad of fruitiness, and complexity in the roasted black malt.

Rune (11054) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2012
Big bottle purchased at Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. Carried back home and shared with Finn at a dinner party with the ladies. Huge, tan-coloured head resting on top of a devil black body with a brownish shade. Aroma is mid-sweet with earth and roasted malts. Roasted dark malty in flavour including a touch of chocolate. Sweet ending offset by bitter roastiness. Easy to drink. Paired well with our food (Skibotn, 06.10.2012).
