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.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Smoke, ham, toasted cereal grains, doughy, earthy, toffee, and chocolate.

Taste: Same as above. Some bitterness in the rear too. Nice mellow flavors.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Nice smokey black lager. I'll revisit this one again in the future.
