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.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 On tap at Craft Beer Co - Islington on 17th November 2012. Almost black with a cream coloured foam ring and spot lacing. Rich roast aroma with festive berries. Rich and intense roast malts without excess sweetness, mild smoke, berry fruits and coffee in-mouth. Smoky finish with citric tang and herbiness. Smooth, slightly leathery mouthfeel. Exquisite.

I love this beer. Reminds me of that first taste of Coconut Porter. That charred taste is just wonderful. The smokiness is so well balanced. Brains greatest smoked porter? Yes, I think so.

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.

Bottle from Sourced Market, St. Pancras, London. A thick black beer that pours with a very large foamy tan head. It has strong chocolate and coffee flavours, nutty and roasted notes with more beech roast on the finish.

Stonking beer! Really smoked in flavour, incredible hit of complex flavours. Lacks a level of sweetness which would soften the bitterness and fuller the taste. But still incredible. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Scratch Bar 210214. Quite thick for a porter and carries wood smoke aroma. Deep black in colour with a moderate head. It’s like you are drinking smoke.
