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.

I love Port Brewing beers, but this is probably the least exciting one I have encountered. I was really disappointed in it. Served cold from a 22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee. After sitting in my glass for five minutes, all traces of carbonation had somehow disappeared, leaving a very unappetizing, foul-tasting beer. Maybe I just got a bad bottle. I’d be willing to try again and re-rate, but this was a very bad first impression.

1 pint bottle, dark pour, light coffee espresso bean flavor. Smells about the same, almost like a light dark. Smooth, good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 poured into a half yard. Huge rocky mocha head, black beer. Smooth and creamy roast aroma. Deep and luscious, medium bodied, bitter malts. Lots o’ flavor in a small attractive package (i.e. low ABV.) The sun has just set and there’s very little surf here, so I’m going to go sit under the full moon and contemplate life, the universe and beer.

On draft at iron abbey. This is really good, coffee dominates the aroma and taste, along with roasted malts, and a bit of chocolate. Excellent.
