Most beer was once smoky and we think smoke is still delicious. Brooklyn Fire & Ice is a robust porter that wraps beechwood smoke around a silky core of oatmeal and roasted malts. Wood is cut in the beechwood forests surrounding Bamberg, Germany, and our maltsters use it to dry their smoked malts, which form the basis of this beer. Together with a blend of roasted malts, it creates a beer that is gently smoky and beguilingly chocolaty, with notes of coffee and caramel.

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served, displaying an opaque, black/brown color, with a fluffy layer of brownish tan head foam, and wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was nicely roasted, creamy, and woody, followed by a pleasant, mellow scent of grilled sausage/campfire smoke. The taste was somewhat similar notes, with the roastiness more defined with some coffee & light molasses, but seemed to wash out and became less robust in texture & body. Thus, light to medium bodied, moderate bitterness, moderate malt, with a seltzery quality to the carbonation, that seemed to reveal a hint of saltiness for the finish. Okay, but disappointed, considering the impressive start.

On tap @ The Anderson. Deep dark robust porter with think dirty white head. chocolate, licorice, smoke. First sip doesnt tell much, but after 5mins it warms in the back of mouth.long lingering roasted toast after taste. Smokeness is subtle and not overpowering. Chocolate and burnt wood warm the palate. Best in a chalice. Broooooklyn!!

Bire noire avec un haut col de mousse noisette. Nez fum, moka et fruits secs. En bouche, lattaque est sur le caf, belle amertume, et laisse la place rapidement au fum. Et, petit petit, la malt torrfi reprend le dessus. Belle texture mousseuse et crmeuse. Pour ma part, premire belle surprise de la brasserie Brookllyn qui mavait du jusque l ...

On tap @ La Fine Mousse. Dark reddish-brown with a small persistent creamy beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of smoke, peated notes, chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and light vanilla. Taste is moderately smoke with peat, chocolate, coffee, caramel and vanilla. Light acidic presence. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Decent smoked beer. The light acidity in the taste is a little off, but otherwise its a solid well-balance beer.
