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.

As rlgk Said; didn’t know this was an separate entry. Had this a few times and didn’t like it much. Murky, stale and smoked with, sometimes, apparent juniper-berries and sometimes just cloying.

Bottle. Did not know this was an entry on ratebeer. Had it at least twice, one with omhper snd once with larsniclas. I remember it as very murky, sour and smoked, fruity and with dough. More Interesting than tasty, but not totally bad.

April 25, 2015. Plastic jerry can, shared by omhper, thanks!
Very cloudy yellow/grey. Aroma is smoked meat, peaty wood, juniper, slight phenolic plastic notes. Taste is somewhat sweet, slight sour with peat and some plastic notes. Medium bodied, flat. Taste much better than it looks...

[4/25/15] Jerrycan sample at a tasting at omhper’s place in Tyresö. Thanks omhper, AndySnow and hackobock for sharing great beers! Muddy brownish gray. Nice smoky aroma with a sourish fruit note. Sourish flavor, fruity, smoky, with a bit of spiciness, and wood. Medium-bodied. Not at its prime, as its not supposed to be sour, but still not bad and interesting. And I love the big plastic jerrycan it came out of!

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
