COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Närkes första lager öl som är en dubbelbock med inslag av gotländsk rökmalt! – Jag har länge velat brygga en dubbelbock, säger HG Wiktorsson, bryggare på Närke Kulturbryggeri. Men experimentlustan blev för stor så det blev närmast en hybridöl, med inslag av tysk bockölstradition, gotländsk ”dricku” och man tager vad man haver á la Cajsa Warg. Från bockölen har jag hämtat styrkan ABV 7,5 %, från gotlandsdrickan rökmalt och enris samt det som fanns och fick åka med på slutet var nakenhavre och Julitahumle.

Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2012
Draught @ Borefts 12. Slightly unclear copper color, small to medium sized a bit creamy off-white head. Smell malts and heavely peated or smoked or both, almost like fingerpaint I used as a kid. Damn I hate that smell. Taste is slightly better, but here also the fingerpaint-resembling peat / smoke comes through. Low to medium body, medium carbonation. Not my thing at all.

jackl (4312) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The nose is smoked ham, soft honey comb, smooth dark malt flavors and dried wood. The taste is more smokey ham, charred wood. Delicate herbal hop burn on the finish. Very smooth, nicely executed. Not my favorite collection of flavors (smoke), but good for what it is.

On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours clear, ruby-gold with a fine, off-white cream head. Nicely rounded smoke aroma. Medium sweet flavor with a bit of dry caramel, pleasant smoke, faint honey-cured ham. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Good, balanced finish, some toasty bread, rich smoke, a bit more ham. Quite nice.

77ships (3586) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. Very ruby amber and a head that looks like milk with coffee. Nose is that of clean charcoal, defined sharper smoke, leather and some almost peated smoke in there.Taste is moderate easier smoke, leather, some tad sweeter darker malts, cleaner fresh-made charcoal, some mild berries, light touch of clean sourness. Medium bodied. This feels like a porter-like beer they probably made way back - what a take back from the description this is a doppelbock. Närke does appear to hark back to traditions which I do like. Probably lovelier to just drink as well than to just have a tasting glass of this.
