A nice deep copper body with a off white head that had good retention and lace. Aroma had a strong smoke aroma upfront, mostly oak but there was an alder like presence to it too. Some sweet malt notes in the back. Flavor was mostly similar. Obviously there was a strong smoke flavor to it. It kind of reminded me of liquid smoke. Good smoke flavor with a savory note. Sweetness of the malts came through a little more than the aroma indicated. Finish was slightly dry and the mouth-feel was decent.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

Bottle from McHugh’s in Dublin. As soon as you open the bottle the smokiness hits you but its not unpleasant. There’s a real oaky smokiness with this and cured bacon but also fairly sweet with dark malt and dark fruit but with a smoothish mouthfeel. For me the "smoky bacon" is just a little too much but nice all the same.
