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!

drowland (7059) - Georgia, USA - DEC 11, 2013
12/11/13. 22oz bottle from Five Points. Deep brown pour, almost black, with a nice khaki head that sticks. Toasty aroma, malty, biscuit and caramel, with a bit of roast, coffee, and chocolate. Nice flavor, smooth maltiness that is more chocolate forward than the aroma led on, a hint of fruitiness, plenty of roast, some ash, lingering biscuit and chocolate. Tasty!

jkwood04 (4817) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 7, 2014
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts, some light rye, a little dough and pale malts, and some light hops. Flavor the same with a decent blend of everything. Average texture. A good beer for the style.

Garrold (2693) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Clear, dark, reddy brown. Film of tan head. Chocolate malt. Roast grain. Hint of spice. A little vanilla. Taste is roast dry. A little dark chocolate sweetness. Smooth, fairly rich palate. Finish is lager yeast dry, with a little roast bitterness. Wasn’t sure at first, but I warmed to this one. Overall score marked down due the top dollar price tag...
