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!

Strange beer, 650ml bottled 12/10/12 which may be just a bit too old to give a fair chance, I’d be very interested to try this fresh. Pours dark brown with little head tastes like a mild/porter with a dash of macrolager. Plenty of roast malt, chocolate. It’s not a bad beer by any means.
