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!

Very malty taste with heavy carbonation. Smell is malt, dark fruits, smoke. Really solid beer that is best savored. Impressive!

Pours a deep brown with a fluffy tan head. Nose and taste are sweet and malty. Not a style I am a huge fan of but a solid beer nonetheless. Fun beer to pop at a tasting for the novelty if nothin else.

22 ounce bottle that poured a black color with aromas of roasted malt, earth, chocolate, caramel, and some bread. Flavors of some smoked malt with rye bread dipped in some chocolate. Interesting flavors overall, decent offering from Westbrook, they continue to surprise me.

Bottle at home. Pours jet black with a huge bubbly beige head. Seems highly carbonated. The aroma is light plastic like with notes of hard roasted malt and light chocolate. The flavour is mostly roasted with some fruity and chocolate notes. Quite roasted finish.
