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 (11433) - 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!

alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2009
22 oz. bottle from a trade (WeeheavySD?). Dark brown pour with a small beige head. Nice aromas of roasted malt,sweet, chocolate, and hints of dark fruit. The flavor resembles a stout more than most schwarzbier which is probably why I like this so much. Roasted malts, creamy chocolate, notes of coffee and smoke, and dark fruits mesh nicely together. It presents itself as a bigger beer.

DocLock (11189) - 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
jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
2008-05-17. Black body with modest tan head. Moderate aroma of roast and hints of smoke. Similar flavour, mild roast malt with mild smoky undertones. (6+) Average palate. Well crafted brew, but the flavour departments in which it excels in are not my favourites to start with, and it also probably lost a a point or two in the midst of a raucous tasting, as evidenced by the fact that I wrote down almost as many quotes as beer notes on this notebook page. At Rudolf’s, shared by Blankboy <P>"... that sounds a lot better than Black-Out-Drunk-Guy." - Frylock<P> "Once again you’ve failed us!" - Blankboy<P> "...someone pissed on a midget... the got closed down..." - Rudolf

daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Bottle. Nice dark brown pour wtih a small tan head. Aroma is quite nice. I got some roasted malt, coffee, some hops and a bit of yeast. Flavor is very roasty and has some dark bitter chocolate. A really nice hop finish. This would be a GREAT session beer. well crafted indeed.
