COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cloaked in mystery, this dark black beer skirts the line between a schwarzbier and smoked porter. The use of a small percentage of traditional Beechwood smoked malt adds complexity and balances the liberal use of chocolate malt. Notes of roasted grains, beechwood smoke and coffee accompany a full bodied and sweet chocolatey malt character. Smoke & Dagger uses locally sourced ingredients. OG 14.5 Plato

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2012
Tap: Poured a dark black color ale with a dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with light smoke notes and some dry black chocolate. Taste is an interesting mix between black chocolate and smoke with light lactose notes. Body is slightly fuller then average with medium carbonation which suits the style. Well brewed and somewhat unique. I would love to have a more regular access to this beer.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAY 1, 2012
(500 ml from Grain and Vine) Dark brown, small tan head. Nose of toasty caramel and chocolate. Mouthfeel very smooth and full. Flavor of toasty sweet roasted caramel-chocolate. Stretch to call this a smoked, but it’s a really good schwarzbier.

MaBeer1972 (1266) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2012
A dark ruby black brew - light tan head. Light smoky aromas. Flavor is light smoke and dark malts. Good balance. Lighter in body than a smoked porter, but still very satisfying. Not overly sweet. Lasting roastiness.

Pours an inky black with a thin, oily brown head. Aroma is smoke and roasted malt. Flavor is rich with smoke, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, caramel, and woody notes. Full bodied with very little carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Very tasty, smokey brew.

growler... dark brown beer, center even more so, tan head... quick an impressive aroma, smoke, light ham, roast, a bit of chocolate, nice balance... the taste isn’t as good, loses a lot of the smoke, becomes a bit watery and boring... others enjoyed much more but a solid rauch

BiddleBrau (917) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2011
On tap at Brew City: Dark- not black but close. Nice tan head which left lacing on the glass. Sweeter malt aroma. Roasty, not too burnt. Mostly smooth finish but roast and smoke linger with a bit of bite on the tongue.
