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.

joeneugs (6314) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle thanks to Todeon! Pours dark brown with a two finger fizzy brownish orange head. The aroma is roasted and lactic with a touch of coffee and blackberries. The flavor is roasted and soapy with a dry start then comes a distinct brown sugar sweetness on the tip of the tongue. Very nice soft mouthfeel. It rounds out dry and nutty with roasted coffee beans and a soapy, bitter finish. A very flavorful porter.

Pours near black. beige head fading to a lace. Aroma of caramel, coffee, rye bread,sweet. Caramel, coffee, roast flavor. Dry, coffee, bitter cocoa.bit of smoke finish. Well rounded. Smooth. Although this brew has a lower ABV than many others, I think more alcohol would hurt the flavor of this one. It is a very good brew.
