COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While for the classic "Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier" traditionally beech has been - and still is - used, the malt for "Schlenkerla Oak Smoke" is kilned with Oak wood. The resulting Schlenkerla Oak Smoke Malt has a smoother and more multi layered smoky note than the intensely aromatic Beech Smoke Malt. The hence complex smokiness in the "Schlenkerla Oak Smoke" is paired with the multifaceted bitterness of finest Hallertau aroma hops. With 8% alcohol and amber color it matures for months in the deep brewery cellars underneath Bamberg into a special treat for smoke beer lovers. www.Smokebeer.com

Kita (1463) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear amber brown color with large soapy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of smoke, wood, roasted malt and leather. Taste starts with sweet caramel, follows by earthy, roasted and mild smokey, mouthfeel is warming and mild spicy, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Sweet and strong caramel bomb, interesting that smoke is not much present in the taste...

MMJL (250) - Gliwice, POLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Zapach z butelki drzewny, ogniskowy, do tego las, ściółka leśna – intensywny i przyjemny. Piana kremowa, wysoka ale opada dosyć szybko, koronkująca. W barwie piwo jasno-miedziane, klarowne. Aromat ze szkła oprócz silnego dymu i starego drewna to ciemne pieczywo, słód i nuty kojarzące się z wilgotną glebą. W smaku wyraźnie słodowe, karmelowe, chlebowe, drzewne, wędzone, ale w ogóle nie kojarzące się z szynką czy oscypkiem – jest wyraźnie inne. Lekko słodkie, nieco żywiczne. Goryczka jest miła, chmielowa, ziołowa, dopełniona lekkim przyjemnym alkoholem. Wysycenie dosyć wysokie. Piwo jak na ekstrakt zaskakująco pijalne i lekkie w odczuciu. Pełne, delikatnie alkoholowe.

Aggiebob (279) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle. Poured copper color with a off-white head. The aroma is smoky wood and light caramel. The flavor is malty, caramel and burnt toast. Medium bodied with a lingering burnt woodiness. The smokiness dominates too much to drink more than one.

majkelr (210) - Lębork, POLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Wyraźny aromat wędzonki dymny i szynkowy, słodycz. W smaku podobnie, słodycz, wędzonka dymna i szynkowa, także trochę karmelu. Piwo pełne, gładkie. Goryczka średnia, w stronę niskiej.

danielecamo (796) - ITALY - MAY 29, 2015
In bottiglia da 50cl. Colore ramato, limpida, schiuma fine e poco persistente. Aroma affumicato, caramello, legno, frutta secca. Al palato corpo leggero e scorrevole nonostante la gradazione. Sentori ancora di legno e affumicato, fumo, caramello. Ottima birra e molto pericolosa per il rapporto bevibilitŕ/gradazione

Fluxing (561) - POLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Kolor bursztynowy, idealnie klarowne. Piana niezbyt obfita, szybko opada do cieniutkiej obraczki. W aromacie srednio intensywna wedzonka w wydaniu ogniskowym, troche karmelu, chleba, owocow, alkoholu i... ziemia, cale worki ziemi do kwiatow. W odczuciu pelne, oleiste, gladkie. W smaku wedzonki nie ma prawie wcale, jest za to sporo ziemi i calkiem sporo goryczki, ale generalnie niewiele sie dzieje.

500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, reddish brown with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Smoked malt aroma with wood and caramel. Sweet flavour of caramel with smoked malt and wood, leading to a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Nicely done and well balanced.
