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

SaintMatty (6805) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2012
500ml Bottle - Amber with a slight haze and a foamy head. Dried apricot, smoked ham, ash and malt in the aroma. Smoky taste with notes of dried fruit, malt and smoked malt. There’s a lot going on here, but it’s still rather accessible and not too overwhelming.

Bottle. Amber pour with a very small sized head. Aromas were meaty and smoky. Tastes of the same with caramel, and ashy.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 5, 2012
Sörspecialista, Budapest. Gesztenyebarna színe van, ami erős fény elé tartva, borostyánkőként ragyog. Habja vékony, krémes, törtfehér és gyorsan, nyomnélkül eltűnik. Illata édeskés, juharszirupos, fás és füstöltszalonnás. Ízében nagyon szépen keverednek az édes, mézes és aszaltgyümölcsös jegyek, az égetett bükkfás, szalonnabőrös, dohányfüstös zamatokkal, a kesernyés komlóval és a magasabb alkohol tartalommal. Elég testes, de nemtúl sűrű, enyhén buborékos és a magas alkoholtartalom sem túl kirívó. Utóíze mint egy édesebb pipadohányé, kellemesen száraz, kesernyés és igen hosszan tart. Nagyon különleges és igen finom portéka, ami hiába erős, rendkívüli módon itatja magát.

baraciisch (2873) - California, USA - JAN 4, 2012
Aroma is outrageously smoky, color is clear ruby red... Flavor is mildly sweet initially of caramel malts and slightly watery.... Finish is entirely smoky bitterness, slightly less flavorful and complex than I expected after having the Rauchebier, still pretty solid...

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2012
0.5L bottle, enjoyed @Amundsen, Oslo. Misty reddish-brown body. Low greyish blond head leaving fine laces. Sweet, refined bready malts to the nose. A touch of ash and meat, too. Prononced smoke and burnt wood tones in the flavor. Nicely balanced by a clean and rounded malt-sweetness. Pepper and mild bitterness underneath. Balanced and easy on the palate. An utterly complex beer with the smoke character very well integrated. Lovely!

JK (5732) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2016 Bottle. Dark brown beer with low carbonation. Good smoke aroma, and good smoke flavor. Some caramel, and malt. This is a great beer, but the palate is thinner, and the smoke flavor and aroma is less intense than the standard bock.

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2012
From bottle. Oaky smoky malt, caramel sweetness. Smoke-cured ham and sweet sausage, campfire. No hop aroma. Copper amber clear with thin foamy head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with doppelbock malty richness, followed by a big hit of smoky goodness that’s not overpowering. Woody, oaky, hop bitter finish with lots of smoke. After is lingering caramel and smoke. Delicious and pairs well with chili and hearty meats or stews.

AmEricanbrew (6727) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Clear amber color with fleeting head. Nice smoked hardwood, meaty,nutty, toasted caramel aromas. medium bodied with soft co2. Smoked almond, caramel, woody, dark fruit flavors--but it’s mostly smoke--good stuff

egajdzis (6105) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Brown color with a small, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked wood, some roast, caramel malts, and burnt tobacco. Taste of tobacco, smoked wood, meats, lighter caramel, tobacco, and sweeter finish.

tommann (3347) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a dark orange with a small head. Aroma is smoked ham and wood. Taste has smoked ham to start and more on the finish, with some ash and wood. Low carbonation but full in the mouth.
