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.

Dashimus (218) - London, Greater London, - FEB 28, 2013
Pours very dark brown with a very thin beige head which dissipates extremely quickly. Aroma is strong coffee, BBQ sauce, smoke, toffee and caramel. Taste is smoked meat, cold coffee, caramel and a light bitterness. For a porter, is disappointingly thin bodied and seems watered down. Short to medium bitter finish.

Holmen2 (651) - NORWAY - JUL 11, 2014
From can. Black. Persistent beige head and lacing. Wonderful aroma and taste of smoked malt, coffee, dark chocolate and a tiny touch of smoke. Superb aftertaste, balanced with very moderate bitterness.

ciaranc (784) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 8, 2014
Black pour, huge tan head, asking lacing, looks superb. Roasty, smoke and salt notes in the aroma. Coffee chocolate and bacon notes in the flavour. Chewy mouthfeel, flat work a bitter coffee note in the finish. Lovely.

Bottle at RBSG 2014. Thx to everyone for sharing today’s bottles! APPEARANCE: black beer with huge stable beige head. NOSE: smoked. TASTE: smoked, burned malts, chocolate, some coffee, oké. Don’t really like smoked beers, this one is a bit more balanced though!

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Bouteille 33cl @ RBBSG III, courtesy of Jef. Brune foncée, col fin beige presque blanc cassé. Arôme est malté, grillé, léger chocolaté sur un rétro-nasal subtil au niveau du fumé. Palais est malté, grillé, choco restant dans un profil très anglais, possible ajout dark crystal? et fumé. Ce dernier reste par ailleurs assez discret pour une bière au fini axé sur un délicieux moka et ponctué d’un houblonné offrant une amertume citronnée EKG agréable. A 5.4%, une belle réussite.

77ships (3564) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
330 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG III. Thanks to JefVerstraete! Dark brown & huge tanned head. Smell is very intense mocha, milk chocolate mixed with a big amount of smoke (quite DE-like), even faint lacto. Taste is mix of chocolate ice-cream, lots of smoke, milk chocolate, mocha, light roast, touch bitter, lingering sweetness. Substantial body, very nice stuff.
