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.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2012
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Unlabeled bottle wrapped in some sort of newspaper, informative and original. Black appearance, big lasting brown head. Smoky nose, peat, roasted malts, some coffee, perhaps even some lactic notes. Smoky flavor, subtle, coffee more pronounced than in aroma, bitterness, but little hops. Lasting bitter and smoky finish. Not nearly as extreme as the Bamberg brews, instead it’s quite subtle, but everything is in perfect harmony. Well balanced, good beer.

heavy (2120) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 16, 2012
21/07 RBESG Grand Tasting, 0.375 l bottle. It poured hazy brown body with medium sized ivory head. Nice, slightly sour peat aroma, a bit of ham and caramel. Flavor was a bit sweet, caramel, raising and chocolate with smoked notes like burning log made of some dry wood. That added to some acidity. Medium in body with shorter, but nice caramel and milder smoked finish. Not what I used to in smoked beers, but I liked it.
