Day 34 Drink: Nils Oscar Rokporter
Nils Oscar Brewery is based in Nykoping, Sweden. Originally founded in Stockholm in 1996, the brewery is named after a Swede who traveled to America several times, returning to Sweden and establishing a farm. The company also operates a distillery and grows its own grains.
Nils Oscar Rokporter is a 5.9 percent alcohol by volume smoked porter that pours a brown amber color. Well balanced with a sweet smoky flavor and a good level bitterness in the finish from Fuggles and Amarillo hops.
