4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: deep amber – like the inside of a freshly cut cedar tree. Orange pithy head fades into a thin collar of tight tiny bubbles. Swirls average.
Nose: oak and cedar gets in your face and never leaves. Umami savorance. Applewood smoke and applewood smoked bacon. Brief presence of toasted nuts in the middle. Apple cores. Spicy melted caramel in the back.
Palate: smoky, sweet, melted caramel, and nutty toffee in the back. Caramel brittle. Starts out sticky then finishes dry which induces thirst for more, thirst I am happy to oblige. Caramel coated applewood smoked bacon brittle delights. Orange oils. Charred oak in my breath. Honeycomb.
Final Thoughts: magnificence in a glass. Aecht Schlenkerla never disappoints. Never. Like sours and Bretty beers, smoked (Rauche) beers are an acquired taste but once you fall in love, you fall in love forever.

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.
