500ml bottle served in a stange. Pours the color and clarity of cola with a fizzy, one inch, tan-colored head. Head eventually settles into a 1/8th inch cap with some residual strands of lacing left in the wake of the receding brew. Nose suggests chocolate malt, roast and a hint of coffee. Taste is roasty with a metallic quality in the forefront. Chocolate character is almost non-existent and the overall flavor profile comes off a bit watered down. Finish is slightly bitter and lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light and a bit watery with a prickly carbonation. Overall, I have to say that I'm a bit disappointed by this one. Definitely not getting a rauchbier vibe either - not sure if it is classified correctly.

Smells decent, light hint of smoke, little bit of coffee. Pretty much same with the flavor, with occasional hints of light chocolate. I just now got a little toasted coconut on the end. Slight bitterness lingers for a bit. I've had Smoke and Dagger a handful of times, but probably variations of it more than the original. I'd really like to compare it to this side by side. Solid beer overall, anyway.

Cask at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark brown, with a quarter inch tiny head, and not much lacing.

Smells include coffee, smoke, chocolate.

The taste is the same. A little too watery for my tastes. Used coffee grounds are the coffee flavor here, plus mild smoke, and cocoa powder. Maybe a little bit of vanilla. A bit disappointing- none of the flavors are that bold.

Light body, too thin, really. Cask-style mouthfeel and carbonation.

Regular Smoke and Dagger is great, the cask version of this one is just ok, not all that exciting.
