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.

Had this on draft a few years back. From my notes:

Brown/purple hue.

Small dark khaki head; minimal lace.

Smoked meat nose; heavy peat.

Medium mouthfeel.

Pastrami, smoke, peat, yeyo...a plum wine finish. Bold, complex & not for the weak of palate. Best New Holland I've ever had.

Found a 2011 vintage on the shelf at a local and it it really solid. The smoke flavor is subtle at first but finished with a strong presence. The rye comes through as the temp rises and is a very pleasant taste. Overall a great find.

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.)
