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.

OleR (4804) - 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

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 (916) - 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.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with a big pale beige head. The aroma is of roasted malts, some hops, caramel and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with quite prominent notes of roasted malts and notes of caramel, dark fruits, chocolate and coffee. The finish is mildly hoppy and quite bitter with notes of licorice and roasted malts. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Good one.

olsvammel (5098) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Appearance: 4/5 Pitch black liquid with a big light brown liquid that left some lacing. Smell: 7/10 Chocolate, hops, nuts, dark bread, roasted and pumpkin seeds. Taste: 7/10 Chocolate, coffee, dark bread, something roasted, hops. Fairly high bitterness. The flavour was fairly intense and lasted a long time. Mouthfeel: 4/5 Fairly smooth with just some bite to it. Comment: Despite the low alcohol this beer was quite interesting with allot of flavour. I liked the combo of hops and chocolate, something that I also experienced in Dark Hops from Beer Here. It worked well with chocolate but I think this beer is just as good on it’s own.

Thanks Omhper for this gift! I really enjoy the aroma of this beer is amazing! Color is pure black with a beige head that keeps a thin layer until finish, aroma is complex, notes of Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and plum, flavor is pretty much the same with a tasty bitter balanced with a soft sweetness. Finish is loooong.... I love it! My trip to Scandinavia was really rewarded!! :D
