COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark Helmet is a German-style black lager (or Schwarzbier) brewed with 10% malted rye. Chocolate and Carafa malts give this beer its dark color and ludicrously smooth, roasty flavor. May the Schwarz be with you!

oobawa (1736) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 13, 2017
Tasty schwarzbier, heavy notes of roasted malt underlined by traces of chocolate, caramel, and smoke, with a mild sweetness complemented by slight fruit esters. Finishes clean (almost too much so), rye spiciness, minerals and a teeny tiny floral hop flourishes closing out the fade. Pours a deep dark black with a moderate cream-colored head and decent lacing. Nose gives up rye, dark roasted malt, and a little yeast. Perfect slick, easy-quaffing texture. Keep firing, assholes.

22oz bottle. Dark pour with lots of bubbles and very fluffy milk shake head. Cocoa and licorice aroma. Sharp carbonation. Soda-ish body. Interesting.

snoworsummer (6069) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. Pours dark brown with most no head. Tastes like chocolate malt, light booze, nutty, molasses, and light ash. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like chocolate malt, booze, nutty, m9olasses, and light ash.

theisti (4205) - Kansas, USA - JUL 18, 2016
4 oz taster draft as part of a 4 beer flight at the Westbrook Brewing Company in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The pour is darker brown with a small light tan head. The aroma is soft roast malt and some sweet light toffee. The taste is the roast malt and toffee caramel sweetness, clean and nicely balanced. The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and dry mineral roast finish. Nice Schwarz.

Hair6a11 (1481) - Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle; Pour is Cola Brown, with a fine bubbled beige head into this glass. Carbonation is modest but lively. I don’t believe Westbrook is known for lagers - skepticism was high going into this one. This one has a heavier than expected smoky nose, with nutty undercurrents and mild fruit esters. The flavor profile falls flat here - muddled roasty notes move forward to bittering rye grain and feint cocoa. This beer excels at marketing, but I could do without it.
