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

notalush (4962) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Draft - dark brown with a bit of a haze to it - minimal head - straightforward, clean black lager with minimal smoke - the smoke mostly adds a bit of additional depth to compliment the roastiness of the malt - chocolate malt adds a sweetness to balance the smoke and light bitterness - well-made, I was just hoping for a lot more smoke.

miquelcrush (1474) - Granollers, SPAIN - SEP 16, 2014
Cervesa amb aroma i gust a fumats, com pot ser a bacó, en boca és molt líquida i fàcil de beure. Cerveza con aroma y sabor a ahumados, como puede ser el bacon, en boca es muy líquida y fácil de beber.

blklab2007 (1999) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle poured a very dark mahogany brown with a thin coat of tan head that fell right to a ring on the glass. Aroma has dark malts, light roast, hazelnuts, and coffee. Mouth feel is mid range but feels a bit light to me for even a porter and the carbonation a bit low. Flavor again has a pleasant mix of malts, roast, light smoke, and again a bit of nuts. I can appreciate the mellow level of smoke as it is just about the level I prefer.

Bottle - Rich malts, bacon, smoke and some raisin. Deep maroon with a rich brown head. Light chocolate, sweet dark malts and smoke. Nice.
