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.

MrHangover (2142) - Den Haag, - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Dark cola with a tanned head. Very nice balanced smoke aroma alongside with woody notes and a nice malty backbone. Flavor is bittersweet with a lot of smoke present. The balance in this beer is amazing. Medium bodied and carbo. Great!

Theydon_Bois (7000) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2014
Keg at Ma Che, Roma, 11/02/14. Almost clear copper come amber with a good sized light beige head. Nose is smoked malt, peaty tones, earthy, toffee, smoke dominates. Taste comprises smoked malt, smoked meats, peat, toffee, grain. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying smoked infused close. All about the smoke which it carries off pretty well for me - no for the rausch newbie!

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle (shared w/brewer at Gaenstaller). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel, toasted bread), with notes of apricot, smoke, candy/brown sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Really delicious stuff, well-balanced and super clean. Nice interplay of smoke and fruit and cookies etc. Hope to have a whole bottle to myself someday.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle shared by H.G. at the Zoiglstube. The smoked malt on first whiff seems peat-like but further passes show it’s more reserved and meaty and the juniper gives it a quiet herb and twig and forest rain character. Creamy, soft carbonation, very clean throughout, malt is soft and supportive. Lingering mild juniper spice in the finish with an exceptionally rich meat and peat smoke quality. Low sweetness with a beefy full body and rich frothiness. Truly remarkable flavor expression and balance.

ClubGonzo (3512) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Orange-brown hazy "sunset" body with a medium off-white head - this beer looks stunning! :-) Aroma is smoke, honey, forest, moss, hints of wood and juniper twigs. Taste is honey, wood, grass, moss, dark caramelly malts, grains, hints of syrup and herbs. Really nice. Full body, medium carbonation. Original and great stuff.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Medium beige head. Hazy red-brown body. Syrupy campfire smoke aroma with earthy funky notes. Sweet-dryish pine needle and syrup taste with smoky funky barnyard notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish medicinal lingonberry afteraste with strong sheep barn and pine needle notes. Nice and drinkable. (0.15l draft at Haand 13.)

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2013
On tap @ Borefts 2012. Amber-plum colored in the glass with a heavy lacing off-white head. The aroma has a swift of smoke over it with sweet ham and nuts. Quite enjoyable even though it’s not extreme in any way. In the taste it has a red-sour berry flavor with smoke and a sugary sweetness. Quite tasty. Ends light astringent and mouthdrying. 30.09.2012
