Notes/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!

This is not a beer style i am familiar with at all so my higher than average rating probably shouldnt be taken too seriously.

I enjiyed this beer quite a bit. Lots of choc and smoky notes and dark color with a medium body that imply this will be a much boozier affair than it is. Almost a session. I would grab one or two of these each fall or winter assuming they dont jack the price.
