COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Smog Rocket Smoked Porter - Thick, dark & Robust
Inspired by the Industrial Revolution and the Steam Train.
Back in those days, the Porter was the everyday toast of the working-class masses. Let’s raise a glass to the people that made Britain ’Great’.

Porter. The way it’s meant to be.

Hazy, dark red brown. Huge, frothy-fluffy, offwhite head. Aroma has light smoke, chocolate. Roasted, smokey, fruity, chocolate flavour. Light mouthfeel but still rather solid. Really nice.

MiP (13774) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle, 5.4%. The aroma seems a little smoked, but not distinctly so. Black colour. Big stable creamy light brown head. The flavour is roasted, coffeeish, slightly smoked and slightly sweet. Has a spicy hint towards the end. Late coffee aftertaste. Has a lot of character, this one.

Bamsen78 (3389) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle @ Hoppy Advent Race in Space, Sønderborg. Pours hazy coffee brown with airy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and lactose, with notes of chocolate. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt and chocolate, with notes of lactose and coffee. Touches of roast. Mild, milky and coffeelike aftertaste. Nice, indeed.

esp0r (2088) - NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Pours quite dark, black in glass, with a dense creamy tanned head. Smell of burnt wood, smoke and peat, toast and dark malts. Moderate sweet, mild smokey flavor, some more burnt wood, hints of toast and ash. Moderate bitter finish. High drinkability factor. My only complain would be that i want even a bit more smoke in this one

Dark brown, foam is brownish but there’s not much of it. Aroma is full and soft, filling your nostrils with coffee and chocolate. Slight smokiness detectable in the nose. Taste is nicely chocolaty and pleasant. Small spiky roasted stings. Nice and enjoyable, would drink more of it. Not too complicated as a beer but what is there is well done.

Medium dark brown color. Sweet malty nose with moderate smokiness and chocolate. Big chocolate mouth with lot of smoke in the background. Big charcoal finish with moderate smokiness. Nice stuff.

Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Aprill 2014, The Fox’s Knocker, London (£ 2,50), 33 cl. Must, punaka helgiga. Tumekreemikas vaht, kaob kiirelt. Aroom on paradoksaalselt nii suitsusingine kui šokolaadine, röstine-kohvioane, linnasene; soojenedes muutub ülirikkalikuks seguks nii paljust heast... Maitselt no-bullshit / straightforward kange(!), tugeva röstiga kohvine, mõrkjas ja omajagu ka hapukas. Kehalt üllatavalt kerge, kuid tugev, vaid pisut erksa mulliga, veidi tuntava humalamõrksusega. Järelmaitse on raskevõitu, linnasene, kuiv. Suht kick-ass jook, võimalusel kindlasti uuesti proovida. Duh, kõiki Beavertowne ma mõtlen.
