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.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2010 Oh lord, huge head, smells like smoked salmon vs sausage , I cant even bring myself to describe the taste........ first taste: Like drinking a stein of charcoal with a burned tyre on top. Second taste; actually pleasant,smokey but not offensive, like a good salami, interesting, very interesting. Third taste; a nice beer. RERATE - some notes, just a delicious smoked beer, beautiful bacon notes, lovely peat and smoke with a tremendous long bacon salami finish. Great

Oak-barrel at Københavnske Øldage 2007. Low to no carbonation. Dark brown - offwhite head. Smoke, smoked sausage, bread, dark dread, wood, sweetness, smooth. Fantastic.

This is a very dark orange-red-brown beer with a complex aroma. It is wood and smoke. Reminds me of a pirate ship. It has a smooth medium body with a clean finish. The flavor is smokey and resiny-- a solid taste that lingers lightly. A great smoke beer!

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 15, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Caramel brown, small off white head. Caramel, wood smoke aroma, little meat and earth. Tangy smoke flavor, delicate malt. Smoke seems a little heavy-handed on it’s own, but with sausage it’s just the thing.

Aroma of a bratwurst, very smoky. Darkinss amber color with a white head. Flavor is mellower than the aroma. Slightly bitter in the middle.

Don’t bring a beer to your barbeque - bring a barbeque to your beer. Smoky in the extreme, but beautifully so, not to offend. Marzen base is a little thin compared to their urbock, but big enough to give the beer a full body.
Rerate for draught: +1 to palate - fuller bodied.

Very interesting! However, I would like to sample some of their other beers, as I tend to think a heavier beer would fit better with the smoked process. Still, if you haven’t had a rauch, yet, don’t give this a miss.

Pours dark brown with a medium sized creamy brown head. Strong beefy smoke, roast malt and phenols in the aroma. Flavour continues along the same lines, a little sweeter than expected. My first Rauchbier, and definitly not my last. Very balanced and well done.

Comparing this to the weizen it is a little smoother, not quite as potent with the smoke, more full bodied and a little sweeter. Head is minimal and a light tan. Color is a clear amber/brownish.
