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.

Bottle. Nice dark brown pour wtih a small tan head. Aroma is quite nice. I got some roasted malt, coffee, some hops and a bit of yeast. Flavor is very roasty and has some dark bitter chocolate. A really nice hop finish. This would be a GREAT session beer. well crafted indeed.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Bottle... Thinkin’ ‘Bout Thirteen Hours O’ Drinkin’ (tew man wrecking crew)... Pitch black lager with a small, creamy, beige head. Terrific retention. Acrid coffee and cocoa with nutty notes and a whisper of smoke comprise the aroma. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Tips just slightly onto the bitter side of balance. Moderate acidity. Lengthy, acrid, charcoal finish. Kudos to mgumby10 for sharing the bottle!

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Argonaut Denver. Pours a deep brown/black appearance with a fluffy, dark brown head. Very roasty, charred malty, a touch smoky, coffee, mild chocolate, a bit herbal aroma. Dark fruity, burnt malty, chocolate, caramelized sugary flavor that’s a bit thin on the finish. Fairly light bodied. Solid but not overwhelmingly good for the style

Scopey (10037) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle at Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours jet black with a thick, light tan head. The nose is rich coffee, salted liquorice, soy sauce and dark chocolate. The taste is caramel, soy sauce, toffee, salted liquorice, tar, sesame seed and brown sugar, with a dry-roasted malt finish. Medium body and above average carbonation. A tasty Schwarzbier.

Dogbrick (10019) - 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.
