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.

mmahut (1650) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 25, 2015
Can. Pours in black body with medium tan, almost brown, head with short lasting and no lacing. Aroma has medium bacon like roastiness upfront, no hops aroma. Clean fermentation profile. Taste has high earthy bitterness, medium bacon sweetness. Balanced towards the roasty sweet profile. Body is medium, flat with harsh carbonation in the finish.

Can. Pours a very dark brown. Aroma is a bit smokey with coffee notes. Taste is well balanced and complex. First some malty sweetness with dark fruit notes followed by a smokey and coffee finish. Very crisp finish. Nicely balanced smoked porter!

szeli (130) - GERMANY - OCT 31, 2015
Kein tolles Porter. Im Geruch hat es die Note eines selbstgebrauten. Zudem Rauch- und Röstaromen. Im Geschmack auch nicht überzeugend. Etwas Röstmalz, etwas Rauch, sehr wässrig. Zudem unglaublich überkarbonisiert. Enttäuschung

Mild aroma. Taste starts alright, but ends up flat. Smoky indeed, but meh. Not bad, maybe goes well an smoky dish like some barbeque.
