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.

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

330 ml bottle, from Systembolaget. ABV is 5.5%. Black colour, big brown head. Lovely aroma of roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate and coffee, hints of English liquorice. The flavour is roasty with notes of coffee, hints of liquorice, dark chocolate and burnt toast. Some fruity notes in the background. Distinct bitter finish, both from the hops and the roasted malts.

Sampled from bottle. Near black colour with beautiful pale brown rocky head. Clean aroma from cocoa and grassy hops. Smooth, chocolatey flavour with flowery, piney, nutty and grassy hops, rubber ballooon, mint, bitter chocolate, bit of acidity and an overall feeling of rye bread - all are elegantly acompanying to the flavour profile. Velvetty mouthfeel and really nice balance. The finish is long and there’s bitter chocolate, rye bread and slight acidity lingering. Medium bodied. Bitterness is smooth and not overpowering. Great beer with the best balance!

LoFi (1710) - 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.

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!

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!

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
