Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mduncan on 07-29-2011

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.

An Excellent beer. I find myself going back to it time and time again at locations such as the Yard House, where there are 100 + beers on tap.

A - Deep dark beer with almost a smoky haze

S - Smell of faint smoke - not overpowering - which is a big win for this beer

T - Taste of light smoke, and creaminess.

M - A bit waxy in the mouth, but not overwhelming

O - Great beer. Highly recommended.
