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.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2009
A Mes rate. Draught at 1st Borefts Beer Festival.
Amazing red amber colour with a thin but lasting off white head. Full on smoke and ashtray stuff but in the best way. Stunning juniper notes that are not over done at all. All the other juniper beers I have had have been awful, this was the exact opposite. The smoked malt is about the best I have had. Schlenkerla eat your heart out. Seriously. Excellent berry notes in the finish followed by even more smokiness. It’s a real love or hate thing clearly, and it doesn’t do a great deal but what it has, really hits the spot for me. Really enjoyed talking to the Narke guys about the making of this and the photos of the boiling tree were just hilarious!

3fourths (8032) - 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.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2009
Tasted at the first, great, Borefts Beer Festival 2009 @ De Molen. Very nice story from the brewers about the origin of this beer. Amber, brown colored brew. Aroma is smoky, juniper, tree. Flavor is also a lot of the whole juniper tree that went in there. Smoke, malty, some hops. Nice brew, great.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2012 On tap @ In de Wildeman, light brown colour, slightly hazy with foamy, long lasting head. Aroma full of smoke, slight coffee hint. Long lasting taste of smokey oak with hint of coffee. Wicked beer.

hirigalzkar (2290) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2010
Draught@Akkurat. Dark red color, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet (caramel), smokey and spicy (juniper and fertilizer!). The taste is as complex as the aroma. Caramel, small sourness, smoke, lingonberry, orange and fat hops. Medium bodied.

77ships (3778) - 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.

ClubGonzo (4024) - 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.

Draught at CBC 2014. Clear copper liquid with a small off-white head. Aroma of smoke, juniper, ham, wood and malt. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of smoke and toffee. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Great.
