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

I know this uses smoked malts but I feel like it should be under Schwarzbier since it’s clearly in that style. Really great beer, caramelly, a bit of smoky meat quality, some slight cocoa sweetness, just a remarkably tasty beer. Lovely, and great value at 3 bucks.

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.

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.
