COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gotlandsdricke is a traditional style of strong, smoked ale made with juniper and rye. There were a couple of commercial versions brewed in the mid-90's but right now it is available as homebrew from farm breweries on the Swedish island of Gotland, in the Baltic Sea. Obviously, the specific beer tasted will vary from batch to batch and brewer to brewer, but this space is available for anybody who has sampled a traditional homebrewed gotlandsdricke to rate it and share their thoughts with the world.

Bottle (Thanks Omhper) - Cloudy and murky amber. Beech, tar, ash and some fruity notes in the aroma. Tangy, smoky and rather harsh taste with beech, tar and some biscuity notes.

Bottled by omhper from farm st. Bol. Cloudy yellow body with no foam. Aroma has light roasty, almost bacon like profile, little bit yeasty, otherwise pretty clean. Taste has an overall roasty bacony character, with malty sweetness upfront, light acidic after taste, quite refreshing. Low to none bitterness. Little bit yeasty. I thought there will be more juniper. Body is medium, flat carbonation. Would go wonderful with Slovak’s halušky :)

Flaska av en kompis, tack Mr_Hult! Lätt grumlad kopparbrun/röd vätska. Fruktig i doften. Stor inledande sötma som sedan ersätts av en syrlig och lätt beska. Pärlande vätska med medelfyllig munkänsla.

Bjuden av broder MrHult. Bryggd i december 2014 i Burgsvik. Grumlig rödbrun vätska helt utan skum. Doftar fruktigt som av plommon med en vass efterton. Svårbeskriven i smaken, söt, lite liköraktig. Ingen kolsyra alls nästan. Ger mersmak! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Petflaska från kollega via bryggare i Burgsvik, södra Gotland. Bryggd december 2014.Grumlig rödbrun vätska helt utan skum. Doftar svagt av plommon och lite kryddigt. Smakar fruktigt och kryddigt, svårt att sätta fingret på. Mycket trevlig eftersmak som gör att man vill dricka mer. Wohoo, öltyp nr 76!

Several different samples at homebrew festivals throughout the years. Usually from a plastic container, sometimes from a cornelius keg. Usually a murky, brown liquid with minimal head. Aroma of wood, bread, smoke, ham, juniper and sometimes a little fruity esters from the yeast. The taste is usually light sweet and very light bitter with a spicy smokiness and bready malt. Light to medium bodied with very low or no carbonation. A bit hard to rate several beers at once.

Tried many versions of Dricka/Dricke/Drikku over the years. Some have been bottled, many have been served from plastic buckets or containers of various volumes. So how to rate something from many different brewers with so different character? Well more often than not have been dark brown with little to no head. Mainly sweet, malty, smoked, some juniper scent and taste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, with low to very low CO2, usually no bitterness. Some have been rather bad, some very nice. Most have been pretty drinkable, but many others do not agree with me.

How do you rate something with so many varieties. Quite easily available on Gotland. A lot of different variants, some commercial, most not. Usually brownish colour with no visible head. Aroma and flavour of juniper, spices.
