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.

jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2013

yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle, 22oz. It forms a dense, almost creamy dark beige head over a clear looking almost black body, with a reddish hue. The aroma is roasted and lightly berry-ish, with a touch of dark chocolate and coffee. Burnt flavor with coffee and dark chocolate, some sweetness too. A bit too much actually, at least if it wants to be a true schwarzbier. Medium body, a bit heavy on the carbonation. Lasting roasted finish. A nice beer, but sort of not living up to what expected. 120324

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: Black, as one would expect from the name, with a thin mocha colored head. S: Chocolate, nuts, a bit of coffee, and the roasted malt. T: Very roasted/toasted flavor, a bit of coffee bitterness, and a mild sweetness at some points. M: Kind of light in body, but a lot more punch than a typical lager. D: Good drinkability, as you would expect from a lager.

bhensonb (15753) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Bottle from Ledgers Liquors. It’s sublabeled MIdnight Sessions. Same ABV. Black, black, black, with a passing tan head. Aroma of dark malt and coffee. Near fullbodied with creamy carbonation. It thins as the carbonation leaves. It’s got coffee and burnt toast. Makes me think somewhat of the old, long gone, Guinness. Burnt. Yeah. Great finish. Do these guys ever make a mediocre beer?

3.4
Scopey (15687) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle at Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours jet black with a thick, light tan head. The nose is rich coffee, salted liquorice, soy sauce and dark chocolate. The taste is caramel, soy sauce, toffee, salted liquorice, tar, sesame seed and brown sugar, with a dry-roasted malt finish. Medium body and above average carbonation. A tasty Schwarzbier.
