Fad: Flot orange let uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duft af bacon og røg. Klassisk Schlenkerla. Røgen er ikke så dominerende i smagen som røgen lægger op til, men er stadig super integreret i øllen. Flot og lækker røgøl.

Draft. A deep red beer with a lazing beige. The aroma has strong notes of smoked malt and medium notes of caramel, and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of smoked malt, and medium notes of caramel, and wood, leading to a smokey finish.

Happy as a clam that they tapped this while I was at Spuyten Duyvil in Brooklyn. Pours a waxy copper color with a trim off-white head. Smells of smoked malt and caramel. The most approachable Schlenkerla beer I’ve yet to encounter. Very balanced and relaxed flavors of smoke, meat, caramel, and hops. Would drink this on the regular, if possible.

32oz growler courtesy of scrizzz. Thanks, Clint! Pours a deep, brilliant and clear golden-to-orange-to-ruby color; creamy head formation with decent retention and fine-bubbled lacing; really attractive color here. Gorgeous density of smoke character in the aroma: charred oak, smoked meats, and a fair amount of spiciness; not quite the same slim-jim / peppery character of some of their others beer, this is smooth and creamy and shows layers of smoked meat and vanilla and toasted wood; absolutely beautiful aroma here. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lots of creamy, well-attenuated maltiness here in addition to all the smokiness in the nose; relaxed carbonation; light caramel and fluffy, honeyed malts in addition to the smoke: roasted meats, fair amounts of spiciness, and a hint of something approaching pepperoni or spiced pork; beautifully creamy, full-bodied, well-attenuated, and highly sessionable; this hits a similar spot to the Fastenbier, which was similarly fantastic and fleeting in its availability. I need to find a place out here with cheap Schlenkerla bottles. Lasting finish: nicely toasty on the departure, including honeyed maltiness, toasted oak, and smokiness that lingers long afterwards.

Draft at redlight. Pours a mostly clear coppery amber color with a small, foamy white head that settles to a thin film and leaves tiny spots of lace around the glass. The aroma shows notes of a sweet caramel malt base, fresh floral hops, salty bacon, smoke, and oak wood. The flavor shows more caramel and doughy, bread malts which add sweetness to the smoke oak wood flavors. The smoke is present throughout, but doesn’t overpower and lends a salty, earthy overtone. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation leading to a dry, salty finish. I like the oak smoke in this one, but I think I prefer their other stuff a little more.
