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!

Purchased at CBX downtown Charleston, SC.
A: poured into snifter, fine +1 finger chocolate milk colored foam head, nice bubbles in the head, dark reddish brown body, some carbonation
S: malts!, roasted malt, some smoked malt, coca-cola, cocoa nibs, slight rye in the background although very faint
M: medium light body, carbonation, slight stickiness on the tongue
T: roasted malt, smoked malt, some char, oak, bitter chocolate, white pepper, slight sweetness, some bitterness on the tongue during the finish
O: Good easy drinking brew, one I would suggest for people that need a gateway to dark beer drinking, very smooth and silky.
