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.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, - 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

olio (8201) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2015
Tap @ Olutravintola Konttori.
Pours dark ruby red color with a thick off-white head. Roasty malty aroma with hints of toffee and caramel, some mood cocoa too. Very pleasant velvety smooth palate, malty, slightly chocolaty flavor with mild hop bitterness. Maybe some mild orange also on the aftertaste. Quite pleasant and quaffable. Nice.
