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.

Woodsy smoked aroma. Dark chocolate with a red tone color with a minimal tanned head. Smooth crisp smokey taste.Caramel background. Has a crispy fruity feel. Once over the initial smokiness in mellows but still leaves that burned after taste. First of it’s style I’ve had and I think it’s great.

tillmac62 (256) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Pours a lovely dark amber with a distinct dark ruby cast. Very good head, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of meaty bacon like smoke against an underlying dark fruit (plum, fig) note. Light medium body with a somewhat slick texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with just a touch of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a masterpiece of intensity, balance and complexity. The delicious smoke character is always present, but never overpowering. It begins with campfire bacon like smoke over a slightly sweet background that has dark fruit characteristics. The middle allows the hops to impart a low level bitterness that has a citric note. The almost dry finish is somewhat crisp and leaves you with a touch of biscuit like sweetness and a lingering smokiness as if you’ve sitting around a campfire. World Class.

Pours a dark brown with a little fine off white head. Nose is heavy, meaty smoke, a little caramel, a little coffee. Flavor is smoked meats, caramel, burnt toast, an almond essence (benzaldehyde) note. Medium bodied, slightly oily on the palate.

500ml Bottle puts a dark brown, almost black bear with a smooth off-white head. Aroma, smoke, roasted malts. Taste, light bitter and sweetness. Intriguing and unusual.

Excalibur123 (189) - Soria, SPAIN - OCT 28, 2014
Vierte ámbar oscuro con buena capa de espuma beige que perdura en el vaso; se aprecian aromas a beicon ahumado, caramelo, madera y cuero; en boca entrada refrescante y maltosa con notas ligeramente picantes, amargor sutil tornando a dulce en el pos gusto. Cuerpo y carbónico ligeros en un estilo peculiar en el que prevalece el humo pero no se hace pesado contrastando con el dulce de la malta lo que la hace interesante y fácil de beber.

Zlotta (96) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 0,5 l bottle, best before 10/2014. Clear red brown with frothy tan head. Aroma and taste of smoked malt, bacon, nuts, raisins and hints of caramel. Almost salty. Low carbonation, thin to medium body. Nice crisp bitter finish. Drank it while eating some pork and mushrooms. Loved it from the first sip!
