Dark HelmeT: The imperial schwarzbier - We’ve gone past ludicrous speed to plaid! This German-style strong black lager is not your father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate’s beer. The roasted malt character will make your brains go into your feet. Druish hops and malts from planet Spaceball.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Similar to a black and tan, but thicker. Appearance was very dark, but lighter in texture. The taste and carbonation of a stout, with the bitterness and body of an ale. Loved it.

ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 2, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Poured a deep opaque black with a thin tan head that settled to a ring that left light lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, and dark fruits. Taste follows the aroma along with cocoa, a mild chalkiness and light herbal hops. Medium body with light carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden until the beer warms, where it shows through the finish.

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Nearly opaque black with some red notes, a small, light tan head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt toast, smoke, and some alcohol. Taste of dry, roasted notes, black malt, some smoke, with a lager year cleanliness, and light alcohol in the finish.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 16, 2009
GABF 2009. Pours clear black with a small, fizzy light brown head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, toffee, meal), light hop (herbs), heavy yeast (sweat, leather) with notes of prunes, cola, maple syrup, and dust. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and an astringent finish. Average duration, heavy sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

GMCC2181 (1591) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2010 On tap at stewarts. Second time it was on tap was much better in my opinion....Poured into a lager glass. Dark, not much head. Decent aroma of dark fruits and coffee. Taste is dark fruits, roasted malts, a hint of chocolate and some coffee to round it out. For how dark it was the texture was pretty light. Not watery. Unique beer. Almost porter or light stout like. I would get it again.
