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.

This beer is very smooth for the style. The smoke gives it a bit of bacon but it doesn’t overwhelm. The finish is quite nice, smoky yet smooth.

Keg @The Vintage, Leith. Pours almost black with a little brown tinge. On the nose you get a gentle, smoke/roast/burnt smell. On the palate you get smoked jarlsberg cheese alone with some chocolate, a touch of sweetness at the end lends itself to perhaps some lactose being in the recipe as well.

Beerman6686 (4351) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2014
This one poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of light smoke, medium roasted malts and some dark chcoolate. Flavor was mainly smoke and roast, a simple tasty smoked porter.

Beerdedone (2625) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Draft. Pours opaque black with a thin tan head. Aroma of smoke, chocolate and coffee. Flavor of smoked malts, light chocolate, coffee, cocoa and had a touch of molasses with a dry roasty finish.

Tap at Cross Scythes, Sheffield. Clear, very dark red. Halo of tan head. Dark cherry fruitiness. Smoky. Earthy. Taste is sweet. Earthy dry, too. Light bitterness. Slightly thin mouthfeel. Shortish, dry, light bitter finish.

tgncc (2819) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2014
The aroma is smoke, chocolate, burnt caramel. The appearance is deep black, light tan head. The flavor is smoky, chocolate, light salt. The finish is smoky, salty, pine. Medium in body, actually a tad thin, this beer’s only real drawback. Nice beer with a nice lightly smoky touch.

Nocturne (786) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Keg at The Cellar, Chester. Dark black with a mocha head. Nicely smoked aroma leading into the taste. Thick chocolate malt smothers blackberry fruitiness and smoke lurks just behind the curtain at all times. Not the most drinkable but then smoked beers rarely are to me, however, when they’re this solid I can certainly appreciate them.

Draft at Mtc Office. Pours very dark with short head. Taste starts sweet, then becomes slightly smokey and ends bitter. Seems heavier than most porters I’ve tried (heavy as in oatmeal stout).
