Picked this one up from the brewery a couple of weeks back and had it chilling in the fridge. Tonight seemed as good of a night as any to crack it open. Poured chilled into a NEBCO tulip.
Looks pretty black. I poured it a little harder than I normally would by accident and it really built a head fast. It settled and left nice lacing in its wake. Head is a nice beige.
Smells like a mix of the schezuan peppers and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal (I mean that in a good way). Seriously, some cinnamon, some malty sweetness and just a touch of vanilla.
Tastes interesting. Very little of the pepper flavor comes through, just a tiny bit at the very end to warm the tongue. Lots of cinnamon, teeny bit of vanilla, maybe a little allspice or cloves in there too. Malt sweetness is present, but not much at all, really just enough to tied the flavors together. Mouthfeel is nice. It's creamier than I would have expected. The carbonation is on point.
Definitely an interesting beer. I was pretty intrigued while drinking it, finding different flavors came out the more I drank.

Numb Swagger pours a dark brown with a small tan head on top. The foam disappears quickly leaving behind spots of lace on the glass.
The aroma is spicy with notes of yarrow, sage and some dark fruit. It almost reminds me of Thanksgiving stuffing.
Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft and watery with mild carbonation. The flavor is malty with caramel, brown sugar and plum. Spice notes of sage, yarrow and a touch of pepper quickly dominate. It finishes dry with some mint(?) and pine bitterness. When gone the pine and sage lingers on the palate.
An interesting beer. Lots of flavor and easy drinking. Would go great with a hearty stew.

On cask at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.
Pours a dark black, with no head, or lacing.
Smells and tastes like regular Smoke and Dagger. This is disappointing- not that regular Smoke and Dagger smells or tastes bad, but this does not carry any discernible pepper aromas. It's disappointing, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it, because I like Smoke and Dagger.
Slightly watery, but smooth cask mouthfeel. Little carbonation.
This was surprising, because it tasted no different than the regular Smoke and Dagger, even on cask.
