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

dlovell2 (860) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours dark brown with tan head. Roasted malt, smoky wood aroma with chocolate and light coffee. Roasted malt with some smoky woody flavors followed with a sweet caramel and chocolate flavor. Finishes roasted coffee flavors and a dry woody flavor and some smokiness. Really great roasty brew. Another great offering from Jack’s Abby.

rjplumer (443) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Very deep black with tinge of red. Has a smokey roasted chocolate aroma. Sweet roasted smoke taste with sweet finish. Only leaves a slight roasted taste. The smokiness only stays a little and then leaves a refreshing feeling.

McWorta (644) - LUXEMBOURG - NOV 21, 2014
Deep ruby red brown clear colour with a fading tan head. On the nose aromas of lightly roasted malt predominates with hints of chocolate and faintly wood notes. The texture is lively and surprisingly light - medium bodied. The beer offers flavours of light sweetness and a hint of roast bitterness. The chocolate and roasted malt comes out clear and the smoke comes good after a brief moment. Well balanced and palatable. The finish is lightly sweet and lasting well.
