COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its 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, youll 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.

Its like a stout lager. I was really astounded by the amount of deep chocolates present while being light like a lager. A very surprising beer for sure. Serve this one cold.

Pours from big bottle a dark brown with a yellow halo, biege head. Aroma of brown sugar and soy sauce. Flavor of tamari, and chocolate hides a very light body. Roasty toasty nose and a finish that dries out with some hop and alcohol notes.

Thanks to Rustychiles for splitting the bottle with me. Pours jet black with small brown head. Faint roast aroma and not much else. An amazing amount of taste for a Schwarzbier. Very nice roast, chocolate, and burned coffee taste. Pairs very nicely with food; very refreshing for such a dark beer.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 Pours black with a thin dark tan head. Nose is a thick meaty smokiness with some coffee. Not really my thing. The roasted malt and coffee flavors are more prevalent in the taste, but the smoke is there too. Finish starts a little like sour milk but has a nice lasting bitter coffee taste.
