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

AndresTM (361) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2015 Loved it! Deliciously smoky aroma that is not overwhelming at all, with smoked ham, honey, sweet caramel malts, oak, and a minor herbal hop noise. The taste is sweet, woody, and smoky, devolving into a drier finish. There’s a minor suggestion of alcohol, but it’s overwhelmed by the sweet malts and smoke. Medium mouthfeel with adequate carbonation and a smooth body. I found it more drinkable and engrossing than the Urbock.

Magnificent smoke aroma and flavor, moderate bitterness. The only flaw I could find was a bit of astringency on the finish. Loved it.

Fritz123 (1285) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle shared with dad at hos house. Pours a deep amber with a moderate white head that lasted about 60 seconds. Not overpowering smoke aroma with wet leaves, oak branches, caramel malts, and rawhide. The taste was mellow compared to the aroma with smoked wood, campfire, chewy caramel, brown sugar, and butter. The mouth was almost creamy and slick. Nice rauchbier without too much powerful smoke flavor.

Kita (1417) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear amber brown color with large soapy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of smoke, wood, roasted malt and leather. Taste starts with sweet caramel, follows by earthy, roasted and mild smokey, mouthfeel is warming and mild spicy, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Sweet and strong caramel bomb, interesting that smoke is not much present in the taste...

MMJL (226) - Gliwice, POLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Zapach z butelki drzewny, ogniskowy, do tego las, ściółka leśna – intensywny i przyjemny. Piana kremowa, wysoka ale opada dosyć szybko, koronkująca. W barwie piwo jasno-miedziane, klarowne. Aromat ze szkła oprócz silnego dymu i starego drewna to ciemne pieczywo, słód i nuty kojarzące się z wilgotną glebą. W smaku wyraźnie słodowe, karmelowe, chlebowe, drzewne, wędzone, ale w ogóle nie kojarzące się z szynką czy oscypkiem – jest wyraźnie inne. Lekko słodkie, nieco żywiczne. Goryczka jest miła, chmielowa, ziołowa, dopełniona lekkim przyjemnym alkoholem. Wysycenie dosyć wysokie. Piwo jak na ekstrakt zaskakująco pijalne i lekkie w odczuciu. Pełne, delikatnie alkoholowe.

Aggiebob (230) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle. Poured copper color with a off-white head. The aroma is smoky wood and light caramel. The flavor is malty, caramel and burnt toast. Medium bodied with a lingering burnt woodiness. The smokiness dominates too much to drink more than one.

majkelr (181) - Lębork, POLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Wyraźny aromat wędzonki dymny i szynkowy, słodycz. W smaku podobnie, słodycz, wędzonka dymna i szynkowa, także trochę karmelu. Piwo pełne, gładkie. Goryczka średnia, w stronę niskiej.

danielecamo (772) - ITALY - MAY 29, 2015
In bottiglia da 50cl. Colore ramato, limpida, schiuma fine e poco persistente. Aroma affumicato, caramello, legno, frutta secca. Al palato corpo leggero e scorrevole nonostante la gradazione. Sentori ancora di legno e affumicato, fumo, caramello. Ottima birra e molto pericolosa per il rapporto bevibilitŕ/gradazione

Coppery color with a white head with short to medium duration. Aroma has notes of smokiness, light caramel and wood. Flavor is slightly sweet, smoky, caramel, toasted malts with floral notes. Caramelish notes in the final with light smokiness. Very enjoyable.
