COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not often that a great summer swell coincides with a full moon, but when they collide, nature affords us a rare opportunity to paddle out long after everyone has called it a day. These moments are a solitary pursuit with empty lineups, but those who carve graceful lines under a full moon understand how things can be dark lonely and rewarding at the same time. So next time you paddle in from an overcrowded beach break, remember that nothing tastes better than a cold beer after a session. We suggest a glass of this smooth roasty black lager for contemplating empty lineups and waves that go on for days. Most likely, you’ll long for epic summer swells under moon lit sessions opening the doors to isolation and empty secret spots of an age trying to pass us by.
Note: Formerly Midnight Sessions Lager.

Leighton (22769) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle shared at Euston Tap. Pours pitch black with a sturdy, beige head. Big and roasted malt aroma with some sugary notes. Flavor is rich, sweet and very malty, with further roast, brown sugar, caramel and faint vanilla. Medium in body with average to lively carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and acidic, with more sweet, roasted malts and faint, coffee-like bitterness. Very good beer.

fiulijn (21506) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2009
2009-06-12, bottle blind tasting at Papsø’s, 6-3-6-3-11=29
Black color. Papery aroma. Quite basic Stout, maybe smooth and creamy, with too much burnt malt, maybe in the end (that is even quite harsh), and too bitter.

2009-05-13, draught at Nørrebro Bryghus, Copenhagen, 5-4-6-2-12=29
Black color, solid big. Aroma of roasted malt and paper. Weak body, with a sharp roasted malt flavor, somehow rounded by a smooth mouthfeel, with a quite strong ending bitterness. Not bad, but without some real vibe that the Germans can give.

2.6
mcberko (19803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
On tap at Urban Family Public House, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and some bittersweet cocoa. Flavour is pretty subdued, with dry bitter cocoa, bready malts – pretty bland / flat, with no life / body. Whether this is the norm or not, I’m not sure. Disappointing stuff.

3.8
saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle from Ølbutikken. Huge head with excellent duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich roast malt, nuts, caramel and hops.

4.4
Oakes (19332) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2008
Draught, Lost Abbey, multiple occasions
Pretty close to black. Nice creamy head. Lightly roasty, chocolate, with vague hints of smoke and nuts. Full body. Lots of rich chocolate flavours. Sweet and supple. American lager to be sure, but so smooth and complex.

3.5

3.5
TBone (18542) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2010
Bottled @Beer Hunters 0.66 ltr
Deep ruby brown color, small beige head. Intensive coffee, cocoa powder, chocolate and caramel in the nose. Quite good body for 5% beer. Coffee, caramel, slightly ashy dark malts. Some bitter notes in the finish - not sure if it is from hops of is it bitterness of coffee. Coffeish, decent Schwarzbier.

3.6
jtclockwork (17604) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with brown head. Nose and taste of roast chocolate, coffee, lager yeast, liquid smoke and cocoa. Medium body.
