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. Note: 500 ml bottle from 2012 was brewed at de Proef brewery.

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

Vighals (1410) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2014
Svart med lavt beige skum. Sure røde bær, kakao, tutti frutti og sviskelukt. Salt lakris og noe søtbitter mørk sjokoladesmak. Kort litt salt avslutning.

Det här var svart och mysigt, kroppen var kanske inte den största men balansen var väl avvägd. Smaken ba. Toner av rostad malt, kaffe och choklad.

jookos (2621) - FINLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle, trade with Nisse666, thanks. Black, tan head. Light grassy citrus aroma, together with a slight ashy roasty, licorice maltyness. Full bodied, quite smooth, mouthwatering finish. Hoppy greens, ashy roast, ground coffee beans. Nice body, perhaps a bit too gressy though.

FunkyF (162) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2014
Prov på Örebro öl och whiskeymässa. Mörkt brun med ljusbrunt skum. Klen i smaken men ok.

Leini (921) - SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2014
Sample at a local tasting event. Dark brown body with a medium head. Chocolate, dark malts and fruit. A bit too fruity for my liking.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 11, 2014
Aroma is as you’d expect, roasted malts, some wood, a tad vanilla. The taste takes off with the roasted flavors from the dark malts, dark chocoloate, some nuts and a little ashy. Very delish and priceworthy Porter.

NewLander (2) - SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2014 does not count
I must have gotten a bad batch (040616 BRP1401) It taste just like hops and water, no poter taste at all. Color is light brown with a lot of unfiltered gunk.

Cool_Bond (1583) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2014
Light fruitiness and roasted malt. Taste of fruitiness, dark malt and some sweetness. Decent heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Reminds a bit of a Black IPA, but good for drinking. Maybe a little too bitter only. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Senap (390) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
En trivsam upplevelse. Bra med smak. Fin balans, inte alls för söt, utan snarare åt det torra hållet. Rekommenderas.

Nische (900) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle at home. Black coloured with a medium sized beige head. Roasted aroma of caramel, chocolate, hops and dish washer with notes of coffee. Roasted flavour of dark chocolate, hops and grass with notes of grape fruits and coffee. Dry roasted and hoppy finish. Medium bodied.
