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

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2011 Light bready aroma. Fine amber pour. Fairly dry, medium weight bock. And where is that Aecht Schlenkerla signature smoke? I didn’t notice it right away, but as the beer warmed it became sweeter and smokier. There is some molasses flavor in the mix, and I was surprised that the ABV was so high. This is flavorful and flawless, an unspectacular German bock enlivened with some "Schlenkerla oak smoke." I would get it again.

Christian (11278) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2011
On tap at Zly Casy. Dark red brown with a lasting off-white head. Wooden and clean smoky aroma. Sweetish malty flavour with intense smoke and again a certain wooden note. Impressive balance in the beer and no sign of the alcohol content.

Light brown with a thin feel as you pour it: the visual experience makes it seem like it’s juice, not beer. Head has to work a bit to get going, then dies pretty quickly. Smell is classic Schlenkerla--over the top smoke and meat. Mouthfeel is very watery. Taste is all raw bacon and smoke. A bit of alcohol warmth in the finish. Pretty great flavor, but I wish it had a bit more balls. Definitely easy to drink and I like the woody, peaty, Highland single malt flavors that come through. If you’re a rauchbier person, you’ll like this, though you may think others (including Schlenkerla’s flagship) are better; if not, you won’t.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with an average, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, toasted, nutty), light hops (earthy, woody), and light esters (fruity) with notes of wood, smoke, and bacon. Flavor is heavy malt (bread, caramel, toasted, nutty), light hops (earthy, woody), and light esters (fruity) with notes of wood, smoke, and bacon. Medium body, carbonation, and creaminess with low warmth and a medium sweet finish.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Smoky nose with some rather medicinal notes and a touch of butter. Tate is lightly sweet with some caramel and some fruity yeast, lots of smoke, some oak notes, and some butter.

Draft @ 4th ave pub in brooklyn. This is what a smoked beer should taste like$ much boozier then the others from them, but very good. Smells of smoke, sausage and wood. Tastes like bacon with a hop andmalt finish thats balanced. I dont see how this is a dopplebock, but its a good smoked beer. Im a fan
