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

Teran (273) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 29, 2016
Smoked fish aroma is dominant, but not heavy. Nice clear copper colour, small beige top. Caramelized herring, weeds, minerals. Some saltiness, medium bitterness, slightly dry. Doppelbock is one of my favorite types of beer and smoky beers are not - but I have only good words for this one. Great mouthfeel, excellent in alcohol. A lot of malt, piece of art!

biir (704) - Berlin, - APR 28, 2016
Flasche - Kuperfarben, rotstichig, geringe Schaumkrone, klar. Typisch intensive Schinkenaromen, viel Malz. Trockener Abgang. Ein bisschen edgy finde ich, viel Alkohol, nicht richtig harmonisch eingebunden. Geht nicht leicht runter. Dennoch wunderbarer Geschmack.

Kampfar (121) - Münster, GERMANY - APR 25, 2016
From 0.5L bottle; pours dark amber, slightly reddish coloured, nearly clear with some large, floating particles and a light brown head. Aroma: smoke, malts, slightly caramel; taste: slightly smoky flavor, slightly sweet, leading to a light bitter, smoky finish. Very pleasant aroma! Not as heavy smoky as most of the Schlenkerla beers. Medium to full body, creamy texture.
