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.

Flavor is sweet and smokey, malt, a little tree bark, bread crust, caramel, some lurking coffee, meaty, roast mushroom, a splash of BBQ sauce. Sweet, smokey, sticky finish.

Keg at the mad hatter brew tap. Pours dark brown, near black, no head. Aromas of smoke and liquorice. Taste is more of the same. Sweet finish. Not bad.

tmoreau (2628) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2014
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served, displaying an opaque, black/brown color, with a fluffy layer of brownish tan head foam, and wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was nicely roasted, creamy, and woody, followed by a pleasant, mellow scent of grilled sausage/campfire smoke. The taste was somewhat similar notes, with the roastiness more defined with some coffee & light molasses, but seemed to wash out and became less robust in texture & body. Thus, light to medium bodied, moderate bitterness, moderate malt, with a seltzery quality to the carbonation, that seemed to reveal a hint of saltiness for the finish. Okay, but disappointed, considering the impressive start.

On tap @ The Anderson. Deep dark robust porter with think dirty white head. chocolate, licorice, smoke. First sip doesn’t tell much, but after 5mins it warms in the back of mouth.long lingering roasted toast after taste. Smokeness is subtle and not overpowering. Chocolate and burnt wood warm the palate. Best in a chalice. Broooooklyn!!

Bière noire avec un haut col de mousse noisette. Nez fumé, moka et fruits secs. En bouche, l’attaque est sur le café, belle amertume, et laisse la place rapidement au fumé. Et, petit à petit, la malt torréfié reprend le dessus. Belle texture mousseuse et crémeuse. Pour ma part, première belle surprise de la brasserie Brookllyn qui m’avait déçu jusque là ...
