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!

The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and dry mineral roast finish. Nice Schwarz.
