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.

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.

tgncc (3014) - 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 (1172) - 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).

Ron (3012) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2014
on tap at AJ’s Warehouse. Pours black with big thick head and listing lace. Aroma is soft sweet malty and smoky with something else mixed in here. Flavor classic and very nice porter with a touch of smoke throughout.

OPIE788 (337) - Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Draft. Black with a tan head. Smoky and chocolaty. The smoke doesn’t overwhelm you. Not too bad.

sloshgator (557) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Brooklyn Fire & Ice is an unexpected speciman of this German style. Roasty sweet aroma coming from a dark pour with a tight tan head. Taste is initially a bit sweet like a cola followed by a smokey note and a light bitter finish. Fire & Ice is a delicious and original rauchbier.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Dark brown/black pour with a small tan head. Aromas of slightly smokey malts, toast, some coffee as well. Flavor is coffee and toasted sugar with some subtle smoke character. Not bad but way less smokey than I was expecting and not even close to what I was wanting. The smoke character in this brew is minimal. A decent beer otherwise.
