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.

hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Bottle... Thinkin’ ‘Bout Thirteen Hours O’ Drinkin’ (tew man wrecking crew)... Pitch black lager with a small, creamy, beige head. Terrific retention. Acrid coffee and cocoa with nutty notes and a whisper of smoke comprise the aroma. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Tips just slightly onto the bitter side of balance. Moderate acidity. Lengthy, acrid, charcoal finish. Kudos to mgumby10 for sharing the bottle!

DocLock (10706) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy black with 1-finger light-brown head. Nose is roasty, slightly rauchy, with dark malt, chocoff, and slight nutmeat hints. Tastes dark malty, very smooth, with roasty and rauchy notes mid-palate, plus mild chocoff notes and a touch of hazelnut. Medium palate heft. This is a very nice brew, second runnings or not.

3.4
cubs (10636) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Argonaut Denver. Pours a deep brown/black appearance with a fluffy, dark brown head. Very roasty, charred malty, a touch smoky, coffee, mild chocolate, a bit herbal aroma. Dark fruity, burnt malty, chocolate, caramelized sugary flavor that’s a bit thin on the finish. Fairly light bodied. Solid but not overwhelmingly good for the style
