Dagger Dark Lager is a tasty example of the Schwarzbier style. It's sessionable AND has flavor. When poured into a glass it's attractive to look at. It comes up a little short on taste just because the middle doesn't deliver much.

Aroma:
Each sniff reveals new aromas. Some roast and faint bakers chocolate hit me first. Light coffee too. As it warms a slight caramel sweetness becomes apparent. Hops do not contribute much as per style.

Appearance:
This is an attractive brew. Two fingers of tan foam, maybe a little more, cap a very dark brown, almost black brew. Only when held up to the light do deep ruby colors peek around the edges. No noticeable haze.

Flavor:
This light bodied brew greets you with subtle chocolate and a definite roast kick up front. These fade as we head into the middle of the flavor and this is the beer's one weak spot. Then a subtle and appetizing smoke flavor kicks in helping you forget the lackluster and a tad watery middle. Dagger finishes clean and though it doesn't leave you with much it is refreshing.

Serving type: growler

On draught at the Bier Stein, served in a tall Ayinger mug, Dagger is a dark brown with a creamy off-white head that leaves foamy lace.

Smell is a not too strong, as it opens you get some sweeter bready malt, caramel and fennel.

Taste is nice, satisfying flavor but clean and sessionable. Toasty malt and chocolate, a bit nutty, a hint of light roasted coffee, bittersweet.

Mouthfeel is really carbonated, big foam when I even lightly swish it in my mouth, but there's a softness to it in spite of the dry finish. Medium light bodied.

Drinkability is good, a nice Schwartz, I dig the fairly full, complex flavor that still keeps it light enough to quaff liberally.

Serving type: on-tap
