COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark Helmet is a German-style black lager (or Schwarzbier) brewed with 10% malted rye. Chocolate and Carafa malts give this beer its dark color and ludicrously smooth, roasty flavor. May the Schwarz be with you!

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Big thanks to Ken for sharing. Great stuff. Coffee, some light earth, leather, dirt, moderate darkly toasted malt sweetness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Modest dry bitter finish, further earth, hints of chocolate. Nice.
