Details

Pouring thick, deep and dark, Smog Rocket was inspired by London's industrial past. With flavours of chocolate, coffee and rich bitter roastiness, the underlying smoke is subtle but persistent.

A wonderfully rounded beer with a smooth, satisfying finish, this smoked porter is the one type of smog you do want to experience!

Brewery Info

Founded in 2011 by the amazingly-named Logan Plant, Beavertown was the old Cockney name given to the historic De Beauvoir area in London. The Beavertown brewery was set up in Duke's Brew & Que - a pub in De Beauvoir, Hackney, which quickly became famed for its authentic American BBQ and punchy craft beers.

The first thing you notice about a Beavertown brew is the packaging - futuristic, apocalyptic and totally entertaining whilst you enjoy your beer. They have an excellently variety to try, including a black IPA (!) and a smoked porter. If those sound a bit too experimental for your tastes, try their Pale Ale and Session IPA.

This one's like nothing else. Its a bit like drinking a good beer near the roadside and HGV goes past with a whiff of heavy oil. A little like a hot dog has been dropped in your pint.
Very solid!

Very good beer, but actually one of my least favourite from Beavertown (would pretty much give all the others a 5)! Still very good though and I will definitely buy it again!

I rated 8 for this dark beer. It has a light chocolate taste with a touch of smoke. The smoke is ok though and not overpowering.
Nice light smoked porter

I am partial to a smoked porter/stout and this is an excellent effort from Beavertown.
