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

Clear amber color with airy white head. Aroma is smokey, tar, very nice aroma. Taste is quite sweet, smokey/tar flauvour, a bit sticky mouthfeel, also very nice. All in all very nice beer, well balanced and enjoyable.

Bottle courtesy of Bamsen. Clear dark amber, thick offwhite head. Smoky, slightly meaty aroma, wood and caramel. Meaty smoke flavour. Heavily malty and caramely with hoppy bitterness to balance. Good.

Pith (160) - New York, USA - JAN 19, 2016
This beer. It smells like you’re smoking bacon atop a clear mountain fresh with untouched snow. A clear mahogany base which foams heartily a thick tan head. Taste has the smooth bitter warmth of smoked meat and a long lasting finish. It is certainly less smoke in the mouth than the Marzen or Weizen, but this lightness allows you to drink the 8% without blinking an eye. This beer is everything I want, and everything I need for any time of year.

Fashawn (512) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JAN 18, 2016
Grande birra. Aroma di speck, leggerissimo burro, carne di maiale affumicato. Sembra di annusare un bel piatto di bacon e porchetta. Ambrato carico,presenta gli stessi sapori in bocca, amalgamati perfettamente, con una chiusura secca che continua a far emergere laffumicatura. Grandissima birra.

Cerbier (588) - - JAN 16, 2016
0,5l Flasche. Bier mit einer Farbe nach Mahagoni und einer kleinen Schaumkrone. Aroma nach Rauch und Holz. Schmeckt malzig, kräftig mit einer rauchigen Untermalung, Nuancen nach Holz, Rosinen und Caramel. Komplex und wahnsinnig gut!

Margarenia (10) - GREECE - JAN 12, 2016
O,5lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos, Greece Outstandind smoke beer. Really. If it was not a seaonal brew-only availble for December- I would drink that and nothing more all the year -when it needs a smoke beer, of course. And with a great dish. Not as much smoky in the mouth as the classic Maerzen one but that’s why it get better. More complexity and an oily mouthfeel with a lovely, very long-lasting aftertaste of smoky sweet malt and bit bitter. Nice carbonation, right as it needs. Superb!
