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

On tap at birch hill: Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, smoke, and nuts. Taste is chocolate and smoke, but the smoke is not overwhelming. Medium body, nice carbonation, this is super tasty. I love rauchbiers.

Pepinis (34) - SPAIN - JUL 15, 2014
Cerveza de un negro intenso con buena formación y estabilidad de su espuma. Su aroma es de notas intensas de café y humo y madera, también aparece el chocolate pero de manera más liviana. Su sabor está en buena correspondecia con las características del aroma. Tiene cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación. Su amargor es suave (25 IBUs) pero se ve ligeramente incrementado en boca debido al tostado de la malta. Se trata de una lager oscura, muy próxima a las clásicas scharzbier alemanas pero con los toques ahumados y amaderados de la malta Beechwood. Suave, refrescante y adictiva. (Botella 335 ml)

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 (5953) - 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.
