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.

Aroma dominated by smokiness reminding smoked cheese, smoked meat etc. In taste it’s fairly smoky with same traits as described in aroma, with malty, bready backbone. On palate it’s fairly light bodied with low carbonation. Amber, pure colour with lightly colored solid head with nice lacing.

The scent hit me before I even crossed the river. Smoke poured from the other side of the banks, a dark ruby colour bathing the landscape. My senses were overwhelmed, dominated by roasted, toasted malt. I was not prepared. Even as I walked away, the overwhelming power of the beer came with me. My soul was roasted, there is no turning back.

Aromat szynki :) Do tego lekki chleb razowy, odrobina karmelu - po prostu świetnie się zapowiada. W smaku podobnie, jest bardzo czysto - słód, lekki karmel, mocna, słonawa wędzonka. W finiszu lekkie zioło od chmielu. Przepyszna wędzonka.

Pours a pretty thick brownish head and has a very dark amber appearance, a little bit clear. Even before pouring into glass, smokey aromas were quite obvious, kinda like that woodburnt smell. In actuality, it totally overpowers any other aroma I might get. Has good lacing. Mouthfeel slightly watery. Flavours right off the bat also has that smokeyness to it. Something like burnt roasted dark malts. Actually not offensive. Kind of reminds me of St Peters whisky beer, but better tasting. There’s hints of honey, even bacon, but pretty faint. Such an odd beer aroma/flavour wise but it’s pretty darn good.

Was für ein gutes Rauchbier! Schinken Schinken Schinken, dann kommt eine malzige süße und im Abgang ist wieder Schinken und ein Hauch Hopfen und Honig. Geil!

Аромат дыма, копчено& мяса, пьется легко. На розлив легче и менее приторн& чем в бутылке.

dark, almost black, similar to coffee. Form a durable layer of foam, creamier texture and color. It gives off an intense aroma of smoked, such as bacon or smoked cheese. After roasted malt notes something spicy and coffee are appreciated. It is such an intense and enveloping aroma, which is totally unmistakable. surprising and intoxicating taste. predominantly strong smoky flavor, and in the background, slightly sweet roasted grain to malt, which gives way to a long aftertaste slightly bitter hops tempered by the lingering aroma of smoky flavor is appreciated. It has achieved a near perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness.

500ml bottle at Josh, vintage 2004. Aroma is still smoked (but not as so agressive as a fresh version), some fruity notes. Quite sweet taste with the same notes. Not bad :-)
