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.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - APR 1, 2012
Dark dark brown with a amber touch and a thick light brown head. Very nice beer with a nice mix of chocolate, coffee, nuts alongside more flowery hoppy notes. Ends with a for the stile above average bitterness. A good porter that have a lot of flavor, yet it’s easy to drink and goes down like a charm.

kryon (2869) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2012
This is a good porter with lots of coffee, chocolate and malty aromas and taste. It has a quite nice smooth palate with a slightly bitter ending. All in all an average ok porter.

Bottle, pours black with tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, some citrus and coffee. Taste is like aroma. Ok, would have liked it more if had more punch to it.

I’ve had this one on Tap at Amaranten Hotell (Stockholm) and from Bottle 50 cl at the Beerbar at NK Saluhall (Stockholm). It works out fine either way! I’m looking forward to release of the bottle at the Systembolaget (march first 2012), it’s a rather limited edition. The Color (pit black), The Foam (thick but nice), The Palate (Full) and off course - The Taste.

_angst_ (4654) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2011
Sample @ Porterfestivalen in Gothenburg on November 19. Pours black with a creamy mocha head. Smell is roasted malts, coffee, grapefruit and some liquorice. Taste is slightly sweet with roasted malts, coffee, orange zest and pine. Quite nice but felt more like a black IPA than a porter.

VsXsV (4042) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2011
Draught at VilleValla Pub. 2010 vintage. Black, opaque liquid with very big, thick tan head. Aroma is roasted with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, earthy hops, leather and caramel. Taste is also roasty with notes of pumpernickel, coffee and biscuits. Quite dry and medium to high bitterness. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation and smooth, oily mouthfeel. Nice one, has aged well. Balanced.

Draught @ William K Kurvi, Helsinki (as Slottskällans Black Rocket Porter)

Pours black with a foamy and sticky white head. Aroma has notes of slightly roasty malts and hints of metallic ash. Taste is quite smooth with notes of roasted malts, hops and ash. Medium bodied, but quite heavily carbonated. Nice roasty finish. Okay porter but not that special.
