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.

Last bottle at Birmingham Hop City. Pours a nice hazy brown with a foamy white head that lasts with a touch of lacing. Aroma is classic barbecue with a hint of sweetness. Smoke taste is not overpowering but it lingers. You still get a touch of sweet malt and light bitterness. Classic.

Bottle. Dark brown beer with a strong off white head. The aroma is smokey and mildly hopped with yeastiness. The flavour is well smoked with good bitterness, mild roastedness, and a gentle malty note. Overall a nice drinkable smoked beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My Bottom Line:
This powerfully smoky Rauchbier remains very drinkable through lean cereal sugars, peppery hop suggestions and salty connotations.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam lingers atop the misty amber.
-This may not be very complex but it is wonderfully unique. No other brewery in Franconia has smoked beers of this ilk.
-Mouthfeel is soft and feels natural (nothing feels forced).
-This is another excellent Schlenkerla brew; no surprise, here, but tons of pleasure!

Clear dark amber pour.
Bready and balanced smoke. Just so well balanced, that it asks for more!

50cl bottle at home. Clear dark amber with a medium slightly off-white head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Smoked sweetness with some bitter tones. Smoked malts, caramel, oak, spices, ripe fruits and herbs. A tasty rauchbier.
