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!

Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Sample at the Beers from the Bikes Villes tasting on 11/08/2013. The beer is a solid black color with a medium beige head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing. Malt, citrus and hops in the nose. Light to medium body with a roasty character of malt and chocolate, along with some citrusy hops and licorice in the background. The finish is sweet with a roast malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Okay schwarzbier. IT is prettythick and black for the style, not really an easy-drinker.

Thanks Doug, I style I like. This one somewhat coffeeish and dry, like an Irish stout. Some smoke. Black with reddish highlights and lacy.

Pours clear dark reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, rye and toasted bread. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a roasted and chocolate finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle… Pours black with a huge, frothy, cappuccino head that never fully dissipates. The aroma is straight-up café con leche accompanied by a big hunk of fudge. Very, very nice. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor is of unsweetened dark chocolate, espresso and a touch of carbonic charcoal. Finishes crisp, burnt, moderately bitter, and then presents a lingering, spicy dryness. Borderline world class beer. Terrific for a Schwarzbier. Bottle generously provided by ElliesBrown. Zack’s good people!
