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

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 22B). AROMA: background sweet and roasted malts from the base beer with coffe and chocolate notes. faint smoke notes with balance towards the base beer. some DMS is present. APPEARANCE: dark with a ruby color tint. average tanned head with good retention. TASTE: roasted coffe-like notes with a touch of pleasant and balanced smokiness. some sweet chocolate notes also present. low bitterness with a dry finish. PALATE: medium-low with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a good marriage between a dark lager and smoked malts, that would benefit with a bit more smokiness.

Deep mahogany hued beer with a small khaki colored head. Nose of puffed wheat, smoked grains and faint chocolate. Light body for such a dark presentation. Flavors of light camp fire, bitter chocolate, and lots of caramel sweetness that lead to an almost cotton candy/ash tray finish. Very sweet but very enjoyable.

mrhopsbeertalk (129) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Starts promising. The aroma is rich and smokey, with very subtle hints of coffee and chocolate. The flavor and more so the body fail to follow through. Far too thin, the beer seems to finish and wash away taking with it any sense of flavor.

mgajdaczewa (489) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 21, 2014
W aromacie arcyciekawe połączenie czekolady i wędzonki, dość słodko. W smaku również wędzonka, czekolada, trochę ciemnych owoców, raczej wytrawne, czyste, kremowe odczucie w ustach i super pijalność.

Herber, malzig rauchiger Antrunk. Herber im Mittelteil, dabei bleibt die Malzigkeit konstant, die Rauchigkeit nimmt ab. Leicht schokoladiger Abgang, mild röstig, bitterer Einschlag, karamellig. 11/12/11/11/10/11

Bottle at home. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head and light lacing. Big smoky, earthy, caramelly, bready, bacon meat, and toasted bread in the aroma. Taste is semi-salty, meat drippings, nutty, grassy, caramel, campfire, and toasted biscuit. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Decent smoked beer.
