4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Growler from Bierkraft in Schlenkerla glass. Reddish brown with lasting beige head. Very smoky woodsmoke and toasted caramel aroma. Smoky toasted caramel brown sugar with lager grassiness and lingering mild bitterness. Medium body and medium carbo. Very clean and very smoky, but still the toasted caramel of the malts and the hop bitterness come through beautiful. Ok, I’ve been waiting a couple of years to try this one, and it is awesome. I thought it would be my first 5, but I’m not sure it’s actually better than the marzen, which has less lingering bitterness. I will have to decide whether this or the marzen will be my first 5. Anyhow, I think I need to move to Bamberg.

Really dark amber, perhaps almost brown with a creamy beige head.
Sweet malty aroma that is quite peaty.
Aroma is sweet and light smoky.
Light body, low carbonation, dry.
Herbal bitter after taste.
Not as good as the other offerings from Heller.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pretty clear chestnut with big light-khaki head. The usual charcuterie scents dominates the nose. Smoked ham, smoked sausages, a hint of damp wood smoke, wet moss, a hint of hay, some assorted grains and semi-dark chocolate in the background. Light to medium bodied, dry palate. Quite muted flavours. Ends on a dry, slightly spicy, herbal and ashy note on the shortish finish. I prefer the normal Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smoked meat, charcoal and smoke smell. Slightly smoky flavor, which makes it easy to drink. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Good in the beginning, but you lose the urge for a while. Smaller bottle thanks! Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

caramel, bread, hay, smoke, woody, brown, black, hazy, tan foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish,
A bit more smoother and more body than rauchbier märzen and not as heavy on the smoke. Excellent

On tap at the Moth. Been looking for this one for a while. Pours a brilliant reddish orange color with a yeasty taupe colored head. Notes of smoked ham, cooking oil, olive tapenade, and faint brown sugar. Can’t drink much of this stuff.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,5L Bottle from Hopfen And Malz, Berlin - Pours a light, hazy brown color. Aroma of smoked meats, campfire and a slight toffee-ish malty aroma. The flavor has a blend of smoke, chocolate and rye bread with a slight herbal/spicy finish to it. This is a well made beer, and it shows. The smoke is perfectly balanced with the sweet and malty notes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, many thanks to Finn. Pours a two-finger beige head slowly fading over a slightly cloudy copper coloured body with a shade of dark red. Nice lacework. Bacon up front to the nose, earth and chocolate malts behind. Well blended taste of smoked and dark malts. Salt, bitter and sweet ending. Perfect with the meat soup. Very nice (Tromsø 08.05.2015).
