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

On tap... first true smoked, I believe. Unbelievable how smokey, bbq, bacon like this smelled. tasted similar. while i would say it’s a "cool" beer to try, wouldn’t say I love the taste or could drink more than one.

Not all Aecht Schlenkerla beers are smokey, but this was is. You can smell it from a foot away. The base is a sweet doppelbock. not a heavy, syrupy one, but a moderate one that balances out the smoke. Goes down very easily.

Trolleo (1340) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 9, 2016
Clear dark coppery to brown body, no head. There might be lack of carbonation caused by drinking it month after expiration date. Lovely bacony aroma, dried meat. Taste is mild chocolate, bit of caramel, lots of smoke, sausages and bacon. Full bodied, creamy and oily, flat carbonation. Long sweet smoked finish. Great brew. //bottle from Pivoteka

Bacterial (2822) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Light brown pour with a slight off white head. Really great bacon smoked nose on this. Really nice malty and caramel malt taste with much more mild oak smoke character. Really a delicious beer.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- rauchig-torfiger Geruch gepaart mit einer leichten Süße - leichter runder Geschmack - relativ wenig Kohlensäure - höherer Alkoholgehalt schmeckt man kaum durch - im Abgang gewinnt die Süße dann etwas die Oberhand - mitten drin fehlt einfach der Körper, die Besonderheit - das Bier „plätschert“ etwas ausdruckslos dahin Fazit: Diese Schlenkerla Biere sind m. E. überschätzt

wombat23 (688) - Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2016
16.9 oz. bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a light beige head. Aroma of campfire (dominant) and malt in the background. Taste is smoke, charcoal, malty sweetness, caramel, and oak. Smoke is not overpowering. Mild bitterness. Medium-bodied. All of the elements come together quite nicely.

mutz (909) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2016
Halve literfles gekocht in Berlijn. Roodbruine kleur. Ruikt naar gerookt spek, lekker. Smaakt vrij zoet met een licht bittere afdronk, gerookt spek, volle smaak. Lekker bier.
