Notes/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 chocolately malt character. Smoke & Dagger uses locally grown unmalted barley from MA.

Four-finger foamy head pours milk chocolate in color. Brew is thin black. nice lacing too.

Tons of heavy campfire smoke. Raisin. Milk Chocolate. Char. Leather.

Very bitter. Licorice. Good carbonation. Leathery smoke.

Not smooth or refreshing. I figured it'd be great for a hot summer day, but it didn't quite hit the spot. Good, but not memorable.
