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

Great looking beer dark black with a long lasting layer of head. Roasty toasty and malty. Chocolate and coffee notes. Extremely smooth. A dark drinkable lager. Very high drinkability on this one.

Night black pour from Station Taphouse. Off white lines the glass. A smooth and subtle smoked with some sweet malt and cream. shawnmurphy (539) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2017
12-ounce bottle pours dark brown with ruby highlights and a rich, creamy tan whipped cream head and lacing. Aroma: caramelized brown sugar, nuts, dark bread burnt toast. Flavor: all the above, plus chocolate, coffee, campfire marshmallows. Mouthfeel: light- to medium-bodied. Refined, tasty, drinkable. stevoj (5288) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Draft at Mooney’s. Dark brown, small skin of head.Aroma is campfire and ashtray, some minor sweet malt. Taste brings in some chocolate, more sweetness, the smoke fades to the background. A nice porter with some smoky accents.

Bottle at home. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice bitterness with subtle sweet tones. Roasted malts, smoke, caramel and coffee. Tasty. meccahh69lol (251) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - APR 15, 2017
And for our 40th style in 110 beers or so, we have the venerable Smoke and Dagger from local favorite Jack’s Abby. This pours a thick dark black with a thin head and has a nice roasty smoky coffee woodchip smell. The taste is intensely smoky and malty kind’ve like drinking coffee filtered through mesquite chips. My better half decries this as "garbage water" and actually dry heaved after sipping this so your mileage may vary, but if you are on the wave, this is a good beer. Good for putting out the sauces for your big passover shindig. fishdj120 (3) - East greenwich, Rhode Island, USA - APR 1, 2017 does not count
Just a hint of smokiness that lets the flavors of chocolate and coffee come through.

Pours an opaque brown with a foamy light brown head the leaves lacing. Nose is smoke. Body is medium light. Taste is smoke, roasted malt, with slight dark chocolate with a faint sweetness. Slight bitternes in aftertaste. 12 oz can in a 12 bottle variety pack More Cans! 3fourths (9350) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2016 From bottle it’s deep, lightly hazed brown with a short head.
Aroma impression is black malt, roast, leathery coffee, touches of match stick, with strong diacetyl giving it a buttery burnt milk quality... and because the smoked malt is mild and seems eclipsed by the roast, the diacetyl actually lends it a Czech Tvame resemblance. Medium-light bodied and lightly sweet with balanced bitterness. Carbonation is supple and fine and the body slender, velvet-like and creamy, but lacks malt depth. I had a better experience from tap but still found it basic overall and a little watery-thin in texture.
