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

Tap. Very smokey. It had a bit of a charred aftertaste. Not bad for a smoked beer, but this isn’t my favorite style.

Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks ArizviSG. Black with quickly dissolving beige head. Smoke, mud and then some caramel aroma, bitter, smoky, a little phenolic but quite delicate taste. Light body, slightly smoky finish.

olio (5854) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
355 ml bottle.
Pours dark red color with a small head. Smoke is first thing on the nose but eventually the same weird earthy notes appear as did for the Pilsener, some malty and caramel notes also. Malts and hay on the flavor, mild smoky ham and some fruits. Weird.
