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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle at CCB tasting party. Copper brown. Amazingly fun bandaid smoke. Smooth smoky campfire smoked malt tastes very primitive in a good way. Nothing wrong with it. If you like smoke and leather, with a hint of bandaid with some nice malt sugars carrying the body...why not? Fun stuff!

On tap at The Avenue Pub. Pours a cloudy copper with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is pepper and rubber. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter dry finish. Alcohol present. A decent traditional ale.

drowland (6037) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2012
1/21/12. On tap. Cloudy amber pour with a small ring of khaki head. Smokey, almost plasticky aroma with a bit of caramel. Sweet caramel entry followed by more smoke and burnt plastic... a touch of juniper maybe. Odd.

TheJestersBeer (2060) - SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2011
Draught. Described as a lager in the brewer’s text, but still categorized as an ale? Anyway, it pours a deep copper, with a beige head. Smokey, malty aromas, caramel, licorice, meat, pepper, spices. Off-dry, medium to full body, medium bitterness, balanced CO2. SMokey taste, cured meats, malt, peppar, caramel, leather, tobacco. Odd, but very well made. (2011-10-28)

Koelschtrinker (10649) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Aromatisch rauchig-holziger Antrunk, deutliche Eichenaromen springen einem entgegen. Röstmalzig, etwas schokoladig, sehr harmonisch. Die Rauchigkeit, obwohl sehr präsent, wirkt weniger intensiv, da es sich mit den anderen Aromen verbindt. Herb, rauchig, süßlich sowie hopfig zum Schluss, das Bier wird intensiver. Leichte Tannenaromen veredeln den Nachgeschmack. /10/11/12//11

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
I had this from the bottle into a Närke glass at the brewery with Hans. The beer pours a medium copper with light orange highlights, semi clear. There is a medium tan head ok retention and lacing....The aroma is light smoke throughout with lots of herbs. Juniper water was used so I can smell that with a couple other smells I can’t identify...The tasty is very herby but the smoke cuts it down and makes it drinkable. Not my kind of beer with lots of herbs but the smoke makes it interesting and worth a shot especially if you are Swedish as it is a traditional Gotlandick beer dating back 3500 years.

Mad_Ferret (648) - SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2011
Draught. Hazy orange brown with a nice big dirty orange head that leaves nice lacings. Aroma is smoky whisky, some fruit, brew mash and juniper. It smells a bit like Gotlandsdricka. Taste is malty and smoky with juniper and some caramel. Once again it reminds me a bit of gotlandsdricka. Body is good and the mouthfeel is oily. Very special.
