Rock Art Extreme Double Smoked Porter

Brewed by Rock Art Brewery
Morrisville, Vermont USA
8% Smoked | 91 Ratings | 60 IBU | Special Release |
This deep dark brew may help to tame those cool evenings and put a little spunk in the long nights. You’ll flavor the sweet caramel malts, roasted grains, a big mouthfeel and a touch of smoked grain. Serve this baby up with a nice grilled salmon steak and a lemon butter sauce (easy on the sauce, a light brush or two). Continuing to grill, wedge up some previously baked potatoes heat them through and crisp up the edges, slightly burnt on a few. Slice some eggplant about 3/4 of an inch and put some nice diamond grill marks on both sides. On the side mix up a baby greens salad with a little mesqulin mix, spinach leaves, thin sliced carrots a few cherry tomatoes sprinkle with a balsamic vinaigrette, a few capers and a little fresh grated parmesan cheese. Enjoy! Matt
