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

3fourths (9280) - 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.

12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Black appearance with a nice tan head and light lacing. Aroma of roasted grain, light smoke, chocolate malt and coffee. Similar flavor, rich, dark and mildly sweet with a light roasted bitterness and a light smoky finish. Light to medium body with a slight watery feel and soft carbonation. A nice lager overall.

Ernest (7480) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee, unsweetened chocolate), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of smoke, minerals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Quite a nice brewski...the aroma isn’t super complex, but it’s very clean and enticing...great roastiness, with nice smoke in the background. A bit watery, but nicely balanced for quaffing enjoyment!

zoucrew102 (1561) - - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle. Smoky aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee and roast. Pours black with about one finger of light brown head that has decent retention and lacing. Starts with good flavors of roast, coffee and chocolate as well as a rich full body. Finishes smooth with a good amount of smoke to go with the roast that lingers on the palate nicely. Excellent black beer.
