Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun med vitt skum. Doftar kraftigt av rökt kött och rök. Smaken är också mycket rökig med viss sötma.

500ml bottle. Pours a deep, ruby/caramel with a half finger, khaki head. Aroma has notes of tobacco smoke, caramel, and bread. Taste has big notes of smoke mixed with slight bread and caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a semi-dry finish. Overall well done but not my thing.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
A classic for the style. Aggressive smoke initially that seems tame only after it has pleasurably abused ones palate. Dirty and rustic in the best sense.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 500ml bottle poured in a dimpled pint mug.
A: Pours a deep dark amber to brown color forming a medium beige head. Medium to low retention and some few lacings left
S: Very particular. Very smoky as expected. Bacon. Roasted malts, honey. Delicious
T: As the nose, very roasted and smoky. Bacon, honey, roasted malts, smoked wood. Very mild sweet brown sugar in the beginning but, in overall, a dry beer. End is roasted bitterness
M: A light body after all. Watery. Good carbonation. Roasted bitter aftertaste but not too bitter
O: Excellent beer, excellent drinkability. That’s what you can expect from an Aecht Schlenkerla

Bottle from Cornelius as part of my German beer education. Big smokey, malty nose (think whisky distillery your). Light and sweet taste with smoke throughout. Not a fan of smoked beer but this one is ok.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Deep brown body with thick tan foamy head. Aroma of pepper, smoke, smoked meat, cigar smoke, sausage, wet wood. Lingering smoke aftertaste with little hop presence and carbonation. Good for what it is, but byfar my least favorite style of beer. Drain pour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Schlenkerla, Bamberg. Dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is smokey (bacon), light malty caramel, some wood. Taste is sweet and like the aroma smoked, light malty caramel, light hoppy bitter and some wood. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonation. I thought that drinking this from the "source" it would be better, more intense. It was very easy drinkable, very nice paired with the food (sausages, cold cuts) but not so smoked as I expected.
