Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Pours a cola like brown color with a short tight bubbled head that settled into a small ring.

The aroma is of a big bready malt with a shot of smoke. A bit meaty with some soy notes.

The taste is of a smokey meaty malt. Nice bacon notes. The base porter is fairly plain. I don't pick up much complexity to it. Some caramel notes. The beechwood smoke adds a lovely smoke and meaty flavor.

The feel is light to moderate with softish carbonation. Slightly sweet slightly sour and an ashy bitterness. Slightly dry and sticky? in the finish.

This is a really nice smoked porter. Not overly strong but a good smoked presence. I'd buy this again.
