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!

Drake (8678) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bomber from Charleston Beer Exchange. HUGE burst of carbonation as the bottle was opened but it didn’t gush. Pours a very dark brown, nearly black, with a large frothy tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, floral notes, faint toastiness and rye. The taste is chocolate and roasted malts, rye, nutty notes and a mildly hoppy finish. Thin-medium bodied, very dry and VERY highly carbonated. I think this would be much better without so much carbonation.
