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!

lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roastiness, cream, chocolate and some coffee. Rich flavour of roastiness, dark bitter chocolate, sour cream, bread and grassy bitterness. Medium bodied and very smooth mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Well done, tasty as hell.

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark Brown. I’m a wee bit surprised by this one. Obviously the reference to Space Balls is excellent but I paid a lot of money for this bottle and it was a pretty underwhelming experience. I could have bought about 5 equally tasty Czech Tmavys for the same price. I’m surprised that Ratebeer backs up it’s lofty price with an impressive score. I might be being a bit unfair. It was after all, very nice but I’m awash with Tmavy’s here and this one is comparbale and by no mean spectacular.

wakawakawaka (4) - SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014 does not count
Strange beer, 650ml bottled 12/10/12 which may be just a bit too old to give a fair chance, I’d be very interested to try this fresh. Pours dark brown with little head tastes like a mild/porter with a dash of macrolager. Plenty of roast malt, chocolate. It’s not a bad beer by any means.

Dark black body with a thin tan head. Aroma is malty chocolate with hints of coffee. Sweet taste with some bitterness. Quite fizzy which gives a spicy feel in the mouth.
