Westbrook Dark Helmet
Westbrook Dark Helmet is a Schwarzbier. Let’s get this out of the way, this is some of the most clever label art/name concept beers I’ve seen in a while. I’m not even a big Spaceballs fan but this is brilliant, I particularly love the “storm troopers” at the bottom of the label. “May the Schwarzbier be with youuuuuuu.” Anyway on to the beer, it poured with some over active carbonation, but when it settled down this was a very flavorful black lager. Lots of big roastiness along with a nice showing from the rye, dry and spicy on the finish. After it warms a bit a delicious chocolate note appears, in fact I was thinking a B+ at first but that chocolate is now pushing this to more of a A-. Both on inside of the bottle and out, there is so much to like about this beer.
