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.

Pours medium-to-dark brown wtih about 3/4-finger head. Only two apparent smells are dark roasted malt and smoked pork. You may think you don’t want your beer smelling like meat but this one’s kosher, believe me. Thin and watery on the tongue, moderate carbonation - the smoke flavor picks up immediately before you’ve even had a chance to swallow. Tastes almost entirely of smoky, roasted malt - almost no hop presence whatsoever (nor any trace of meat flavoring, thank Whomever). Altogether extremely smoky, but not in a "burnt" sort of way. I could probably drink a number of these in one sitting. Maybe not quite a session beer, but something that I can imagine myself jonesing for in the future.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2010 strong smoked malt aroma. smells like smoked sausage. ruby brown in color with a medium off-white head. light body and very smokey flavor. i cant figure out if i like smoked beers or not. long lingering smoke aftertaste---re-rate--- *update* I like smoked beers! a clear deep brown under a small white head. lovely smoked aroma. meaty with charred wood. flavor is smoked just enough so that it’s the focal point but still manages to let the subtle qualities of the lager come in. truly the masters of the smoke. mind blowing.

Bottle. Smells like a dirty kettle barbecue (Weber). Mouthfeel is soft and smooth. Taste is incredibly smokey with lots of bacon-flavoured crisps. I can see why this is appealing to some, but it’s not for me - it’s just way too smokey and harsh.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 What a nice beer, smokey, but like a ham, or something, it is very black, and would get you in the floor if you attempt to drink too much. I liked it, very quallity.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2006 Strong smoked BBQ aroma. Dark brown with a firm thumb thick moch head. Smokiness dominates. It’s like drinking the drippings of a BBQ pit. Some smooth and mild malt base beneath that, but the smokiness is the dominant flavor note here.

Very very smoky aroma - almost too much. This also tastes very very smoky. Hard to tell how its like a marzen, mostly this beer is just too much smoke. Still okay though.
