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

Surprisingly, this beer doesn’t have much of an aroma. Thick, sticky texture with very soft carbonation. Dark, roasty, a little bitter, with a hint of chocolate. Pretty light on the smoke - I would have preferred a lot more. I also think more hops would have drawn out the flavor and given it more depth. The palate is fine, but the flavor was a bit of a letdown.

McWorta (640) - 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.
