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.

Mortlach (1005) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
On tap @ Stavio (Rome). Nera, mediamente densa, schiuma bianco sporca-beige. Al naso meraviglioso bouquet di tostato, cacao, caffé e leggero affumicato, equilibrata ed elegante "all’inglese". In bocca conferma le ottime sensazioni, mantenendo una discreta beva ma con tanta sostanza, un ottimo equilibrio e una discreta persistenza. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione soft. Eccellente!

jjsint (917) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Cask at the Fox, Haggerston. Black with a thin grey head. Aroma of light woodsmoke, cocoa and Marmite. Taste is a gentle sweetness with a slight umami bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is lighter than I would have liked. A good beer but maybe not quite up to Beavertown’s very high standards to stand with their best.

Intensa smoked porter con note tostate e affumicate che impegnano il palato in un duello molto intrigante. Proprio soddisfatto.

MarkoNm (749) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 11, 2014
Pours extremelly deep black color, topped with a very decent and lasting dark cream head. A pleasant malty aroma, quite some caramel can be picked up, as well as slightly smoked. The taste is creamy and sweet, roasty with nice caramel. Very smooth and drinkable.

oliodnb (383) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
33cl can. Pours very dark reddish brown, almost completely black with a thick beige head that disappears entirely without leaving any lacing. Aroma is roastiness, coffee, some berries, light soy sauce, some smoke. Taste is similar with a good smoked meat note, ground coffee, vanilla, roastiness again. Nice final bitterness with some burnt flavor. Full body, medium carbonation. Excellent.
