Notes/Commercial Description:
Charkoota Rye - Smoked Doppelbock Lager

Charkoota Rye is a Smoked Rye Dopplebock. Charkoota Rye's malty backbone is derived from a blend of rye and four other malts, including malted barley smoked over cherry wood by our very own brewers, John and Jeff.

Its smoke-forward body is balanced with tones of deep mollasses and caramel, with a crisp, clean lager finish.

19° Plato, Alc. 7.75% by Vol.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a: Nice brownish amber hints

s: smokey with ahint of sweetness

t: the smoke is right out front and burnt grains were present

m: Nice mouth and good smokey finish, like you just drank a camp fire.

o: I dont personally like drinking a campfire, but it is a smoked rye so if that is your thing then this one has it. If you like a strong smokey flavor and burnt grains this is a good beer for you. (If you are looking for a more traditional dopplebock this isnt a good choice.)
