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.

Pours a very dark ruby color, almost brown, topped with a decent tan colored head. Aroma is very smokey, bacon-like quality, also slightly woody. Taste has some sweetness in it, but mostly it’s smokey. The fans of smoked beers will love it, for others it will be drinkable enough.

De color marrón rojizo medio con destellos de color naranja brillante y espuma de cabeza compacta, firme y duradera. De aroma a salchicha ahumada y tocino un poco de moho y ligero aroma a frutas. Su sabor nos brinda un excelente equilibrio de malta dulce y el humo. El humo sustituye al factor del lúpulo como el equilibrio de malta dominante. Ligero retrogusto cárnico.

WhatDaddy (7) - GREECE - MAR 4, 2015 does not count
bottles, 0,5lt. Found at Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos. It’s just THE smoked beer. An overall winner. Aroma of smoke and bacon and a dark appearance. The taste just complete the aroma of... smoked bacon, A very nice full body that could be a meal too. But, it goes extraordinary with some saussages or heavy pork, wild etc And you can drink more than one, but not more than four, I guess.

Aroma is roasty, nuts and chocolate, smoky and hint of tar. Very dark and nice color, almost no head. Medium bitterness, not sweet, full body, thick feel, soft carbonation and long finish. I liked this a lot, very nice drink after sauna.

Farbe: dunkles Rubinrot mit sahniger Krone Geruch: Rauch, Röstmalz Aroma: sehr rauchig, erinnert stark an geräucherten Schinken oder Fisch. Das bleibt auch absolut dominierend bis in den Abgang. Leicht bitter. Insgesamt durchaus gut, aber sicherlich alles andere als ein Alltagsbier

Bardzo dobra wędzonka. W smaku trochę zbyt słodkie, to mi przeszkadzało, ale należało się tego po stylu spodziewać. Świetna prezencja i odczucie w ustach. Świetne piwo!

Forte odeur fumée. Le goût fumée est très puissant dès le début, puis plus rien. Un arrière goût fumé arrive par après.

Extremely smoky. Taste is overwhelmingly smoky. Not much else. Watery mouthfeel. Bland otherwise.

Reddish brown pour. Aroma is tang and light smoke. Tastes like barbecue. Not my sort of beer.
