Black Rocket är en Porter i modern amerikansk stil. Det är en mycket fyllig och smakrik öl med rostade toner av kaffe, choklad och en aning lakrits som balanseras av en komplex maltighet med inslag av bröd, kakor och karamell. Ovanpå detta har stora mängder aromahumle använts som ger toner av gräs, nötter, och citrusfrukt. Receptet är inspirerat av de stora fylliga och humlerika pubölen på amerikas västkust, och har sedan kompletterats med mer rostad malt för att göra en porterversion i denna stil. Vi har använt åtta olika maltsorter och amerikansk och kontinental humle i denna kraftiga Porter. Note: 500 ml bottle from 2012 was brewed at de Proef brewery.

Koelschtrinker (11537) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Stimmiger und voller Malzantrunk mit Bitterschokoladennoten, die im Mittelteil in den Hintergrund wandern. Würzig, intensiv malzig, passend herb. Dazu nun trocken schokoladig und grasig hopfig. Lang anhaltender, zugegebenermaßen aber zu trocken. Stimmig mit ordentlicher Intensität – gefällt. 8/11/12/12/6/12

yngwie (14630) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle, courtesy of saxo. It pours a reddish dark brown body, clear, and topped by a lasting, beige head. Meaty and roasted nose with some dark fruits. Chocolate too. The flavor is sweet and meaty, roasted and slightly burnt. Dark dried fruits and licorice as well as faint notes of ashtray. Some bitterness in the end. Full-bodied, nicely carbonated and quite dry. A beer with a nice aroma and even nicer flawor, one that would be nice as an all-nighter. 100812

LoFi (1637) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2012 Black with a brown head. Aroma: cocoa, cream, roasted malt, dark chocolate, citrus, some fruit. Taste: Dark bitter chocolate, coffee, hints of rubber, some fruit and citrus. Creamy mouthfeel. Really nice! Tastes more than its 5.5%
The above is an aged bottle, trying the 2012 bottles, I get the same as on draught in 2010: hoppier with citrus and pine, still the same chocolate and licorice, higher bitterness, dry finish.

ClubGonzo (4375) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2010
Pours a black body with a small caramel head. Nose is roasted malts, coffee and hints of licorice. Taste is coffee, bitter hops, roasted malts and hints of chocolate. A surprisingly filling porter, whose taste profile and mouthfeel are almost similar to an imperial stout, or at least a strong porter. Black Rocket Porter is light-bodied and highly drinkable, yet very tasty and well composed porter - being able to pack so much flavor despite maintaining the genre-correct low ABV is a brewing feat not to be underestimated. I would love to drink more from Slottskällan in the future.
