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 (226) - 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.

jredmond (6292) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Draft sampled at the beer market in Dublin with the family. Pours a deep brown body with thin off white lading. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with notes of earthy smoke, root, cocoa, light spice, tobacco and dirt. Nice smoked. Light hop profile balances the smokey character nicely.
