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

Fatehunter (1614) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Transparent amber color, only the faintest head. Rich malt smell, lots of smoke, but a "clean" smelling smoke with a crispness to it. The smoke is first in the taste, followed by the traditional doppelbock maltiness, then the smoke overpowers the malt again. It is really a smoke show here. Fairly sweet throughout too. Soft texture, medium body, low carbonation but still tingles the tongue. The doppelback flavor is lost in the smoke and the appearance was average. Still a good drink.

Aggiebob (190) - 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 (154) - 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 (740) - 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 bevibilità/gradazione

Pour from 500 ml bottle, best before July 2015. clear, medium orange-amber with small head that quickly fades. lots of sediment. medium creamy body, average carbonation. smokey woody aroma, malty sweetness with light-medium bitterness and acrid smoke on the finish. Very nice winter sipper.

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.

Fluxing (516) - POLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Kolor bursztynowy, idealnie klarowne. Piana niezbyt obfita, szybko opada do cieniutkiej obraczki. W aromacie srednio intensywna wedzonka w wydaniu ogniskowym, troche karmelu, chleba, owocow, alkoholu i... ziemia, cale worki ziemi do kwiatow. W odczuciu pelne, oleiste, gladkie. W smaku wedzonki nie ma prawie wcale, jest za to sporo ziemi i calkiem sporo goryczki, ale generalnie niewiele sie dzieje.

cmacklin (367) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, reddish brown with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Smoked malt aroma with wood and caramel. Sweet flavour of caramel with smoked malt and wood, leading to a dry, bitter finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Nicely done and well balanced.

tennisjoel (1209) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Smoke is the main player here, like with pretty much all of Aecht Schlenkerla beers. Good mix of sweet malts to compliment the smoke. This was another treat from this brewer. Not getting much of the hops. Good beer and somewhat original.

Røget blød øl. Den minder om en wiskey, men er ikke med skarp eftersmag. Ikke for alle, da den er røget.
