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

migwell (271) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2016
500ml bottle into a Samuel Smith nonic. Paler brown color and a mild smoky aroma. This beer answers the age old question ’Is there any difference between beech smoking malt and oak smoked malt?’ Yes, Virginia, there is. This is a much less pronounced smokiness, both in aroma and flavor, as well as a less pronounced ’meatiness’ to the beer. I’m detecting a slightly burnt, ashy flavor to this one. I’ll have to say that I prefer the fuller flavored Urbock from this brewery.
