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.
2009-2010, 2014 brewed at Slottskällans Bryggeri. 2012 brewed at de Proef brewery. From 2015 brewed at own plant at Vega Bryggeri.

tfredvik (1884) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2016
Close to black body with a large, creamy, light-brown, very long-lived head on top. Dry, malty and strong aroma of dark roasted malt, coffee, ash and cigarettes. Strong flavour of dark roasted malt, coffee, ash, cigarettes and tobacco, with yeasty hints and faint fruits in the back. Light sweet taste with a long-lasting moderate bitter finish. Mid-bodied, dry and with a soft carbonation. A nice one.

Pours dark ruby red color with a thick off-white head. Roasty malty aroma with hints of toffee and caramel, some mood cocoa too. Very pleasant velvety smooth palate, malty, slightly chocolaty flavor with mild hop bitterness. Maybe some mild orange also on the aftertaste. Quite pleasant and quaffable. Nice.
