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 clear dark amber with a medium sized tan head. Smells smokey and hints of caramel. Taste is smoke, hints of sweetness, a kiss of bitterness. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen finishes with a lingering smokiness.

Fratto (2590) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2014
On tap at T&P Tavern. Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma is campfire and brisket. Taste is about the same. Lots of malt. Way more smoke.

Lawger (81) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Dark reddish brown colour. Loads of smoked sausage and other charcuterie scents, some maltiness, sauna furniture, no detectable hops. Palate is dry with a light to medium body and with a slightly burnt smokiness. No bitterness to speak of. Perfect as an easy drinking beer with plenty of character.

Botella de 50 cl en el lúpulo en varias ocasiones, la ultima en julio de 2013. color negro con unos increíbles sabores y aromas ahumados junto con maltas y cereales ligeramente tostados. Una autentica ración de bacon. Cuerpo ligero a medio fácil de beber, increíble sabor para sus solos 5.1 vol. Para repetir de nuevo.

zizzybalubba (1380) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2014
500 mL bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Light brown pour with a frothy khaki head. Aroma contains heavy smoke, cooked pork, oak, and light toffee. Campfire is prominent in the taste but the sweetness of the malt balances this so that the smoke is not overwhelming. Pairs very well with gouda and blue cheeses. An outstanding rauchbier.

mecafilo (68) - Perugia, ITALY - JUN 7, 2014
Pours with a dark red colour, big long lasting white head. Aroma is medium malty and softly hoppy, additional strong notes of smoke, nice (it seems bacon!). Taste is medium sweet, softly bitter, softly sour. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation.
