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.

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.

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.

Really nice one here. Smoke blends with the rest of the beer yet it is still the forefront.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Pint on tap at my local Whole Foods, for $3. Dark brown, near black color. Kind of clear. Thin khaki head. Couple bits of lace. Bigger body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter carbonation. Nice complex aroma. Good smoke, caramel malt, and coffee in the aroma. Moderate sweet taste, light savory. Good long smokey aftertaste. Light bit of chocolate in the aroma, more roast and coffee, hint of dark fruit. Smoke is very enjoyable though, as a fan of the style... Solid, complex smoke beer. Satisfyingly smokey for sure. A little rich and soft though, bigger sweetness. Would probably have been better suited for a snifter format, maybe.

Keg at the Vintage. Smooth liquorice, dry and roasty, lingering dry finish, but not smoky enough!
