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

growler... dark brown beer, center even more so, tan head... quick an impressive aroma, smoke, light ham, roast, a bit of chocolate, nice balance... the taste isn’t as good, loses a lot of the smoke, becomes a bit watery and boring... others enjoyed much more but a solid rauch

A good beer, has a mixed malt combination but isn´t agressive. I looking for in this kind of beer the dark color with very few sparkling and head brown.

mansquito (3674) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Meuleman’s, Vermont: Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, light smoky malts, and some nice medium roast coffee. Taste is much the same. This felt to me like a Schwarzbier with some smoky notes rather than a full-fledged smoked ale. Very smooth and very well balanced. I like it.

McNeillR (1391) - SCOTLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Dark ruby, visible carbonation and ringed creamy off white head. Crisp smoke, choc roast and a little tartish. Creamy enough mouthfeel after carbonation breaks. Finishes soft, light choc and then dark choc on the linger. Not overly smoky but a bit too gummy roast for me. Bottle, Garvies.

Bottle to snifter. Nose is lightly smoky and chocolate. Pour is dark brown with a light brown head. Taste has much more smoke, but in a completely complimentary aspect and is well balanced by a smooth chocolate backbone. Smoke is never phenolic or harsh. Really danged tasty.
