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.

mpersinger (347) - , California, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Pours from big bottle a dark brown with a yellow halo, biege head. Aroma of brown sugar and soy sauce. Flavor of tamari, and chocolate hides a very light body. Roasty toasty nose and a finish that dries out with some hop and alcohol notes.

Thanks to Rustychiles for splitting the bottle with me. Pours jet black with small brown head. Faint roast aroma and not much else. An amazing amount of taste for a Schwarzbier. Very nice roast, chocolate, and burned coffee taste. Pairs very nicely with food; very refreshing for such a dark beer.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2009
UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 Pours black with a thin dark tan head. Nose is a thick meaty smokiness with some coffee. Not really my thing. The roasted malt and coffee flavors are more prevalent in the taste, but the smoke is there too. Finish starts a little like sour milk but has a nice lasting bitter coffee taste.

Port Brewing Midnight Sessions Dark Lager Not a huge lager fan, but thought we would give it a try. Pours very dark with a slight reddish tinge at the edge of the glass. Medium tan head with decent retention. Aroma of malt and black tea with a hint of coffee. Taste is of a subdued stout with hints of coffee and dark malt. Very smooth, but not sweet enough for my taste. I could drink a lot of it, but I could drink a lot of Bass too. Somewhat dry finish. Not bad, but not my style.

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2011 Dark brown pour, think foamy head lingers a while. High, malty aroma with a hint of cherries. Sweet aroma. Good malty flavor with quite a bit of nuttiness. Pours and looks like a stout, but doesn’t coat your tongue the same way, and less bitter. Very nice.
