COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roock is een levend, niet gepasteuriseerd, bovengistend bier. Deze Smoked Porter is gebrouwen ter gelegenheid van het ’tweedubbel lustrum’ van SNAB. Brown Porter, ons allereerste bier, stond twee decennia symbool voor SNAB. Met Roock brengen wij een hommage aan deze klassieke stijl met een XX versie. Sinds 1820 bekend als Extra Stout Porter om de sterkere variant aan te geven. SNAB wordt al lang geïnspireerd door de Amerikaanse bierscene en rookbieren. In onze Smoked Extra Stout Porter versmelt deze liefde. Door gebruik te maken van gerookte gerst, USA hops en gist is een onderscheidende combinatie ontstaan die een complex bier met aangename rooksmaak geeft.

tricksta_p (1106) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2014
Pours a black colour with a tan head. Smells like smoked eel. Aroma of smoked eel, roasted malts, dark fruit, smoked ham. Taste is smoky, rather mild smoke I’d say. Carbonation is a bit heavy for this type of brew. Palate is a bit light, I wish this had more body.

Douberd (2298) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Corked and caged bottle, 375 ml. Poured into a big snifter. ABV 6.5% Very deep brown to totally black in colour, with a tall and thick head on top, brown in colour, with good retention and a nicely formed wall of lacing around the glass. Aroma is moslty smoke upfront and while is cold, after it has warmed up a bit the smoke seems to be fading and more aromas are surfacing, aromas of chocolate, light roasted malts and a touch of alcohol. Taste has roasted malts and a nice coffee bitterness, covered with a layer of subtle smoke. A little bit of acidity as well on the finish. Very well balanced, the smoke doesn’t hide the flavours but on the contrary gives a little extra something. Medium body that it could be a little thicker, good carbonation and light dryness on the palate. Overall this was very good, one more great beer from SNAB.

Jur (301) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle from Mitra Beukenweg, Amsterdam. Bottle in a wrapper and a champagne-like cork. 20 year anniversary brew. Pour is chestnut brown, off-white head. Nose little smokey, toasted. Taste little apple sour, toast, malts, quite fruity. Not what I expected, with all the American ingredients. Very drinkable and balanced. Not nearly as heavy as expected.

Fles gedeeld met lachneger. Ruikt naar gerookte paling. Smaak is rokerig, fris en kwa nasmaak enigzins tegenvallend. Body is medium.
