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

lct-cpr, thin-lasting-wh-head, sticky-med-body, med-high-co2.

aroma: sweet §meaty ^smoky.

flavor: sweet meaty leafy-hops T1, co2 smoky crml-malt leafy-hops T2, sweet-smoky-amber-malt T3, smoky sweet-bready-malt Ts, §adjuncty-lager leafy-hops Tf.

the wonderful smokiness in the aroma and flavor is sweeter than the beechwood smoked schlenkerla beers (not sure if that is from the oak, or more malt, or less hops, or a combination). IMO, it’s not as hop-bitter as the marzen, or as malty as the urbock, and is a bit lighter on the palate than any of the others.

Magnificent, smoky with honey oak sweet taste, I would ascribe this to be maple-cured bacon on the list of Schlerkerla beers.

MiP (13596) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Bottle, 8.0%. Distinct smoke aroma, but not too much, also some malt. Clear brown colour, seems to have a little red. Tan head, semi-frothy and semi-stable. The flavour has a distinct smokiness and a rather sweet maltiness. The finish is drier and perhaps a bit more aggressively hopped than their Rachbier Märzen. Does not really taste 8%, but it is very good.

Wow! Thanks cesaro202 for sharing! Dark amber color with a minimal disappearing white head. Medium body, carbonation starts high, than slows. Slightly smoked aroma, caramel. Taste is sweet with a very pleasant smoked note which lasts on your tongue. Bittersweet

Pours a beautiful translucent mahogany with a small light colored head. Aroma of hunting lodge campfire. Tastes like it smells and no dissapointments.

Can’t get enough of this fantastic smoked doppelbock. Pillowy head. Huge nose. The perfect taste of smoke and sweet deep malts. Rauchbier is an acquired taste for most. Once you acquire it you’ll feel like you’re in a secret club. Schlenkerla makes rich and profound beers. They are among the best. I drink this beer in 500 mL usually three at a time. It’s fantastic.

Picky me...adjust the temp and reduce the bottle carbonation (swirling technique) to get a perfect creamy mouth feel, the aroma is reminiscent of fresh lit cigar. The caramel color gets you prepared for a sweet mouthful, as smoky a beer as Lagavulin is peaty to Scotch. This was enjoyed with Jamaican Jerk seasoned thick cut pork chops and sweet potatoes at harvest season.

Et særegent røyket øl med malt som er røyket over eik og ikke bøk. Det gir den er rund og balansert smak men en smak som likevel setter seg godt i ganen. Fargen er behagelig som en varm cognac og bør serveres i avrundet små stettglass. Schlenkerla Eiche lages kun for julehøytiden kan være vanskelig å oppdrive. Likevel er den tilgjengelig visse tider på året via importøren Mjød Engros. Med eik som kilde gir det ølet en mer lievel en kompleks og særegen smak, og er til tross for dobbelbokk å være ikke så tung eller for kraftig, snarere mer elegant. Den elegante stilen er gjennomgående selvom ølet inneholder hele 8%. Man kan si at dette er en helt ny type/ utgave av begrepet " røyket øl". I tillegg til egenrøket malt bruker Schlenkerla aromahumle fra Hallertau.

This was easily my favorite of any aecht beer I’ve had. A nice not-too heavy smoke aroma, great red color. This was really quite smooth with a great smoke flavor. The only downside at all to this beer is that at 7 a bottle, it’s a bit pricy. but it’s really really good.
