2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
one of those beers that sounds amazing on paper but disappoints... i mean the schenkerla maerzen is great, the urbock is even better, so therefore this should be unbelievable - but it doesn’t necessarily follow because once lagers get up over 7% it gets so much harder to make them work. for one thing the head here disappears in a second, hinting at fermentation issues. add in a strange medicinal oak smoke flavour to the alcohol flavour, and you get a big mess with the smoke and the hops and the sweet caramelly malt as well. what a shame, but at least they still make the urbock with the beech.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Na podstawie dwóch butelek. Pierwsza była idealna mnóstwo przytłaczającego dymu wędzarniczego, szlachetnego przypominającego naprawdę dobre wędzone wędliny, a nie zwykłą kiełbasę :) ciężkie piwo. Druga przedstawiła już niestety nieco utlenienia w postaci mokrego kartonu.

Bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with small spongy off-white head, smoky aroma, smoky caramel like taste,thin body, low carbonation, very smooth long finish with smoky aftertaste. Smoke is all about this beer in fact, but I like it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 500ml. Beautiful cloudy chestnut budy with an average off-white frothy head. Lovely malty/hoppy aroma with smokey, oaky, and some spicy hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its robust taste carries strong oaky notes. Herbs and brown sugar are also noticeable. Ends with a long bitter/smokey finish. Solid!

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gets a ten for the wonderful aroma of German spiced smoked bacon. Buttery, I could expect to be drinking Gruen Speck in a glass. Coppered colour, with a yeasty type of haze in suspension, the flavour is less smoky or swinish. More like a benevolent bock, sweet, with hardly any bitterness, and some cranberry tartness. Brief finish. It is still a worthy relative of those lovely Bamberg smoked beers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It tastes like a smoky doppelbock. The smoke is not overwhelming, but it is strong. I enjoy the mix of flavors. Very bitter finish--I think it’s from the hops, not the smoked malt.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma of smoke (bacon) drifts up a medium amber pour wih with ivory head and no lacing. The taste is smoky with flora hints and toasted malts. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is very tasty and not as smoky as some other Aecht brews. It is my favorite so far.
