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.
2009-2010, 2014 brewed at Slottskällans Bryggeri. 2012 brewed at de Proef brewery. From 2015 brewed at own plant at Vega Bryggeri.

courtesy of Per - a pitch black beer under a foamy and long lasting dark beige head; nice lacework; aroma of roasted coffee with notes of vanilla; some decent fruity hoppiness below; medium-bodied and with a fair astringent bitterness; long coffeish, hoppy and roasted aftertaste - very nice one

LoFi (1706) - 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 (5229) - 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.

SirLimpsalot (3479) - SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2010
Vätskan ger mycket skum, men det försvinner ganska raskt. Den doftar hyfsat mustig och en del bröd. Smaken är lite halvtjock, ganska rökig, men vart är kaffet? För att vara lite elak tycker jag den saknar ungefär allt en stout skal ha. Den har få (nästan inntil inga) brända toner, konsistensen är ganska blaskig och jag får absolut ingen känsla för denna. Lite rökighet har den, och jag tycker det är lite Nils Oscar Rökporter-ripoff över denna, fast rökportern är bättre.

Bottled (tnx omhper!). Quite much pitch black colour, big brown fluffy head. Aroma is caramel, smoked wood, toffee and nuttyness along with some ashes. Flavour is ashes, liquorice, dark dry fruits and grass. Balanced and complex.

Bottle @ Brugmansia/Fonefan Tasting, April 2010. Pours black with a creamy brown head and lacings. Nose is roast and dark malts. A bit ashy flavor with lots of coffee roast dominating. Medium and smooth body. Ends very dry.
