Charkoota Rye is a really nice surprise. Rich black lager malt and lager yeast made new and exciting with a milky richness and sweet smokiness that is well-balanced. A welcome change and nice surprise: an extreme beer that is flavorful, rich, and drinkable.
Would be great with smoked meats or BBQ. Really complex and spicy finish: not sure which flavors to concentrate on! The rich chocolate malts? Smoke and rich earthiness? The subtle saltiness? The rich mouthfeel, almost like milk? Or the long drying finish that makes me wonder what I was drinking?
Finished like an APA or even IPA. Smoke was present but not overpowering, and while it went well with the spicy meaty pizza, I would really like to try it with real slow-smoked BBQ. This is a new batch on tap, and I'm really aching to pop open the 2010 vintage bottles found at RePete's Party Store in Holland, MI.
Serving type: on-tap

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.)
