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.

This was a real special experience. Drank it accompanying aspargus, which combined quite well. Was actually surprised how well the ’smoke’ flavour combines with food.

allanmb (150) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Pours deep Ruby Brown with good beige head. Aroma is of smoke, similar to Islay whisky, and light malt, slight hint of toffee and something estery, maybe the yeast? Good carbonation and medium mouth feel. Taste smoky and Bready. Light bitterness and hint of herbal notes. Taste ends with almost evergreen mint phenols. An interesting beer, but not my typical style

midovark (435) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUN 1, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2016 0.5 l bottle. Dark brown color, no head. Overwhelming smoked bacon aroma, a bit weaker smoked taste. Just as a smoked should be. Nice brew.

anstei (1012) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle. Another tasty smoked with tons of bacon. Salty but not greasy, sweet-ish, reminding a lot of smoked almond. Medium body, lively carbonation. Bitter aftertaste, dry. Decent malts in the background. Very nice! They say it takes a few Schlenkerla Rauchbiere to like - I guess that’s true!

Hanoi (801) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle. Stunned to find it unrated. Nose is smoke, cheese, meat, hints of sweet malt. Taste is sweet malts, brown sugar, leading to smoke, meats and cheese, hint of soy and salt. Lighter and more refreshing than the Doppel, but still delivering on the smoke.
