4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark cloudy amber with a small head. Big smokey aroma, quite sweet. The flavour is smokey, with caramel malt, wood and a rising fruity flavour that is strong on the finish. The firm body excellently complements the robust smokiness.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 mL bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh. Muddy brown pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of campfire, smoked meats, and roasted malt. Taste is very smoke forward but subtle ripe banana and bubblegum flavors manage to find their place. Finishes with some sweetness but the smoke lingers on the palate. Pairs perfectly with strong cheeses and charcuterie. It took me some time to warm up to the Heller brewed rauchbiers but I am hooked. This is another stunning selection.

Aaaah this is smoky thick and sticky as a smoked should be. Great beer full of taste and by far best of these aecht schlenkerlas. Although has their trademark grilled sausage side flavour.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Location: Bottle from Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA
Appearance: Deep Brown-Red
Aroma: Smoked meats, beef jerky, campfire malts, La Brea Tar Pits
Taste: Smoked sweet meats, some burned dark fruits
Overall: Not as ashy as the Marzen / Urbock and not as sweet/meaty as the Doppelbock...a new dimension of beefy dark fruitiness buried deep within.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Deeper amber, frothy off-white head, somewhat nice lacing. Big smoked malt aroma, a
little meaty. Similar on the tongue. Smooth, body and mouthfeel are moderate. Smoke, charred
wood, and campfire last from start to finish. Finishes with a bit of a smoked meat, as most of Aecht
Schlenkerla beers. Nothing out of the ordinary, but solid like most of them are.
