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

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2012
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.

wombat23 (607) - 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 (898) - 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.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Kirkas, keskiruskea selvästi punertava olut pienellä ja nopeasti häviävällä vaahdolla, joka ei jätä pitsiä lainkaan. Tuoksu vahvasti savuinen, tamminen ja makean karamellinen sekä hieman hedelmäinen. Maku vahvasti, mutta kuitenkin pehmeästi savuinen. Savuisuuden ohella kivasti tanssia lyö maltaisen karamellinen makeus ja toffeisuus. Taustalta löytyy lisäksi hedelmää ja myös aavistus happamuutta. Alkoholi nousee hieman esiin loppumaussa. Melko pehmeä, täyteläinen ja matalahiilihappoinen monimuotoinen kokonaisuus.

500mL bottle. Pours a dark amber with a barely-there white head. Smoky aroma of gouda, bacon, and malt. Lightly smoky taste with malty sweetness. Smooth finish. Well-balanced, full-mouthfeel.

Fules (727) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 30, 2016
Közepes, rendkívül tartós hab, vörös szín. Füstölt sonkás illat. Íze intenzív, füstölt malátás, a füstölés nincs túlzásba víve, ott a maláta is, a háttérben egy kis karamell is érezhető. Hosszú, kellemes, füstölt malátás utóíz. Nagyon fincsi, a sült nyuszira meg egyenesen tökéletes. Testes, de nem nehéz. Sajna ahogy melegszik, előbukkan az alkohol is, de nem tolakodóan.

beerplace (701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
500ml bottle at Josh. Vintage 2013. Aroma is sweet, slightly smoke. Same fruity, winey taste. Similar to barleywines. Pleasant, but almost not already smoked. Vintage 2010 same day. Surpisingly smoked aroma. Taste is sweet with some smoky notes. Definitely not a good beer for aging, which becomes more winey, than smoky.

UXO (1454) - CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
Appearance: hazy medium amber with one finger of creamy ivory head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: hardwood smoke, dark fruit, caramel malt. (8/10) Taste: moderate smoke, moderate sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry smoky finish. (4/5) A couple of weeks ago, I said that the Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier might be an excellent place for neophytes to begin exploring Rauchbiers, given its overall quite mellow character. Well, that’s still true, but this one might be an even better first Rauchbier. The oak smoke seems milder than the beech smoke, and it’s also slightly less evocative of smoked-cured meat. Not radically different than the Fastenbier, but just as good - and, interestingly, the much higher ABV is really not any more apparent than the much lower (5.5%) of the Fastenbier. (16/20)
