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.

16.9oz bottle, shared with friend, poured into tulip glass

Aroma: Smoke, caramel malt

Appearance: Brown, dark amber color, nice head, off white

Taste: sweet, malty, but nice balance

Palate: soft, medium to full body

Overall: Another nice smoked beer. Very drinkable. Nice Marzen. Somewhat malty, but not overdone. Overall, very nice beer and one that I’d love to drink near a campfire and makes me think of a campfire setting even when sitting at a dinner table.

Un clasicazo. A falta de comida que llevarse a la boca, una buena sesión de barbacoa.

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours a dark cola brown color with a bubbly head. Very smokey meat like aroma. I?m very much alright with the heavy smokey beers, but this one is potentially over the top. Anything about the flavor is completely overpowered by the smoke. Swallowed a charred campfire log smoke. Though I can?t complain, this beer advertises to be this way. Definitely a sipper as a result. This falls under the "gotta try them all eventually" category.

Bottle @ Gambrinus, Tartu. Smoked aroma, some roasted malt notes. Drinking it is like eating a sausage. Good.

nihtila (1352) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Amber brown beer with light brown head. Aroma of smoke, tar, thats it. Luckilty it doesnt taste that much but still tar and smoke dominate. Also pretty malty, some roasted malts. Soft. Sausage or bacon. Ok but still smoke beer which is not my favourite style.

Kampfar (8) - Münster, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2015 does not count
Dark brown, clear beer with a heavy smoky aroma. It’s taste is malty with a light hoppy bitterness. The smoke dominates the aroma. Light brown and long lasting head. Light bitter flavor with a long smoky finish. Texture and mouthful is OK and not too watery.
