COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most beer was once smoky and we think smoke is still delicious. Brooklyn Fire & Ice is a robust porter that wraps beechwood smoke around a silky core of oatmeal and roasted malts. Wood is cut in the beechwood forests surrounding Bamberg, Germany, and our maltsters use it to dry their smoked malts, which form the basis of this beer. Together with a blend of roasted malts, it creates a beer that is gently smoky and beguilingly chocolaty, with notes of coffee and caramel.

starts with mostly roast and cocoa and oats, but the smoke, which is more prevalent in the flavor right away, opens up to be a nice compliment in the nose as well. Nice balance.

Dogbrick (11495) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Sample at Brass Tap Polaris. The beer is a brownish-black color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Smokey aroma with malt and chocolate notes. Medium body with flavors of smoked malt, coffee and dark chocolate. The finish is smokey with a charred malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Draft. Poured clear dark brown color with a moderate frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy smoked dark malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium smoked dark sweet flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good brew.

Brooklyn knows how to make silky smooth porter/stouts with strong but balanced flavors. No exception here, great, rich, base porter and good, classic german smoke flavor. Could even amp up the smoke a notch.

LinusStick (3236) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2015
On tap at Hough’s in Greenfield. Nice smoky and malty aromas. Pour was a deep dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was nice. Coffee and dark roasted malt with a distinct smoky backbone. Notes of caramel and toffee were hidden deep in the swallow. Nice carbonation.

zizzybalubba (1794) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2015
On tap at The Hop Yard, Raleigh. Dark brown, nearly black, pour with a short khaki head. Chocolate and smoke aromas. Taste offers coffee, chocolate, peat, and smoke. Not as subtle as the aroma would lead you to believe. Nicely done.

Smoke mostly in the aroma. Goes great with hopcat Crack fries... Not much smoke in the taste, maybe a little on the first couple sips but you get used to it and it fades fast. Overall a great beer. I wish it was smokier.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Nice smoked porter, especially because it wasn?t overdone. Licorice, beef jerky, smoke, vanilla, bitter chocolate, and roasted malts round out the aroma/flavor profile.

DocLock (9998) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Draft at Mad Mex Willow Grove. Hazy brown/black pour with tan head. Roasty choc malt, hops, cacao, oats in the nose, tastes like a complex milk stout with rauchy and hoppy notes. Solid.

Draft sample at Eight Ball. Pours brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had smoked malts, slightly meaty, ash, caramel, some coffee and chocolate, thinner and not as interesting as another smoked beer I had at the same time.
