COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2010
Pours near black. beige head fading to a lace. Aroma of caramel, coffee, rye bread,sweet. Caramel, coffee, roast flavor. Dry, coffee, bitter cocoa.bit of smoke finish. Well rounded. Smooth. Although this brew has a lower ABV than many others, I think more alcohol would hurt the flavor of this one. It is a very good brew.

OleR (4767) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. Foamy, lacing, light brown cream head. Body is opaque black. Strong aroma of coffee ground and roast. Spiced hops and burnt caramel notes. Full malt body. Roasted, with a coffee accent, and a nice lingering chocolatey touch. Extremely well-bodied for a 5.5% beer. Creamy in the mouth. Ends up with a pleasant roasted-malty bitterness. Awesome beer!

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2010
Aroma: sourish heavily roasted malts, fresh aroma hops, cocoa, something akin to the sourness of rowanberries, liquorice, faint esters towards pineapple and pears. Again liquorice.
Flavour: roasted malt sweetness, mild hop bitterness throughout. Walnuts, hazelnuts and chestnuts. Sour malt bitterness in the end.
Appearance: brownish black with yellowish tan foam.
Palate: fizzy, thick by carbonation... not bad but not outstanding

thewolf (11113) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Hyltebruk.
Pours dark brown with a giant, creamy, light-brown head. Diminishes very slowly. Lovely looks. Roasted, chocolate and hoppy aroma. Light grassy, some liqourice and a slight blackberry note. Low to medium carbonation, lovely velvety light creamy mouthfeel. Light dryness as well. Flavour is heavy roasted, some liqourice making it rather harsh at first. Then comes sweeter chocolate, milky and nutty flavours. Fine, grassy and fruity hoppy finish. Really a lovely drink. Great ashy and hoppy dryness in the aftertaste. Yum!

wavers1 (872) - Notown, California, USA - JAN 18, 2010
thanks deflagro for this one! pours black with a late rush of brown head. aroma is very doughy, salty, burnt and dry, and the taste follows suite. very intewresting porter, definately a salty note to it. great body and feel, almost has a nitro feel just out of the bottle. nice tasty porter with a different profile than the classic style.
