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

Draught @ As Is NYC. Inky black with spongy beige head, caramel aroma, medium carbonation, mocha taste, not really tasting smoke, thick body, medium bitter roasted malt finish. Very smooth and tasteful but did not feel smoked at all.

Quick3Beers (1058) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 5, 2016
Pours a rich brown/black from a bottle. Nose of coffee, flavor similar with a nice roasted smokiness toward the end, some vanilla and even toffee notes mixed in a bit. Rather thin and almost cola-y. Good beer, and I’m not a particular fan of smoked beers.

Dark brown with a thin creamy head. Nose is light smoke, some bakers cocoa. Taste follows, smoke is light but there and works nicely with the chocolate and caramel malts.

Sampler at the brewery. Dark brown close to black, with strong smoky aroma and smoke edge to the flavor. Creamy with a mildly bitter finish.

migwell (283) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Sort of a mixed up brew, a lightly smoked, somewhat chocolaty and very dark lager... more or less a one-off. Guzzling a few out of a Lagunitas jar, not loving its complexity of odd flavors, but finding it quite oddly palatable nonetheless. Jack’s Abby is expanding the lager range in some pretty amazing directions.

I like this beer. Chocolate, coffee and lager. Yep it has created its own category. Great beer, different and strong trend setter. I will purchase more. The ending is burnt but that is ok. I taste a fire. Maybe overhaul ender. If I was a firefighter and I just put out a fire and was performing an overhaul this is the after taste in my mouth. They should re-market This beer and call it over haul. With a picture of a fire fighter on it after a sweaty night putting out a fire and ensuring safety. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
