Bamberg’s speciality, a dark, bottom fermented smokebeer, brewed with Original Schlenkerla Smokemalt from the Schlenkerla maltings and tapped according to old tradition directly from the gravity-fed oakwood cask in the historical brewery tavern.

The smoke flavor comes out like hickory smoked bacon, and I love hickory smoked bacon

Pours a clear dark chestnut brown with a tan foamy head. Smell is unremarkable with just a hint of noble hops. Taste is quite different than anything else out there. Clearly smoky with an assault of woodsy flavors on the palette that is reminiscent of food char grilled to the point of burning on a wood fired stove. Hint of citrusy sourness rounds out the taste a bit. Medium body and tangy mouthfeel. Lingering smoky aftertaste. Has to be enjoyed slowly like a fine cigar.

So this is what a campfire tastes like! :o) The smoke is extremely evident and gives pleasant associations to Laphroaig. I would love to try this with smoked eel or smoked heering!

Very smoky aroma... Reminds you of smoked salmon and bacon... Very smoky tasteas well with a finish that again makes you think of all the things that needs to be in a superb brunch ;D

Bottle – Poured an amber cleared type brew with a nice head. Aroma of smoke is extremely present, a bit too much for my liking. Taste is overpowered by smoke, almost like drinking a beer in a salmon smoker. This is not bad beer just very different from what I’m used to drinking on a regular basis. This beer would be wonderful if it was accompanied by some sausages or even smoked salmon.

Brown beer with distinctive smokey bacon aroma, more like smoked herring which for me is a good thing. Smokey bacon chips in the mouth, with a cetian sweetness to the malts. Had 2 bottles of this in a vertical tasting, and the oldest bottle had the most intense taste, and the mmost body. God is good!

The best smelling beer ever. Aroma is of smoked cheese and thick meats. Great full flavor, which was extremely thick and filled with smoke and bitter malts.

This beer has swept a carneous after taste the minute it entered my mouth! I have never felt such presence right at the beginning. The aroma is one of burned leaves or smoked meat and there is a pale ale-like feel in the finish. Although the smoke effect is rather stronger than the rest.

This is the oddest beer I have ever tried. Aroma was hickory and smoked sausages. Body was copper and gold. Wow, incredible....strange, but definitely incredible. A MUST TRY!

Smoked beers are apparently not my thing. Looked good pouring out but the aroma and taste were too heavily smoked for my tastes. Down the drain.
