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.

Piękny aromat a’la grodziskie z butelki. Piana obfita, trwała, grube pęcherze, lacing średni. Piwo bardzo wędzone. Kolor ciemnoczerwony, pełny. Klarowne. W smaku słodycz, lekki karmel i gorycz. Wszystko dosyć stonowane, w postaci dodatków do konkretnego wędzenia. Odczucie w ustach pełne, ale nie intensywne. Gaz rozchodzi się po całej jamie ustnej, lecz szybko znika. Goryczka lekko ściągająca.

Dark brown color with creamy head. Very good lacing. Roast aromas, mainly smoky. Also some fruits and some of caramel and vanilla. In mouth it is slightly bitter. Medium body and a bit oily. Good carbonation. To sum up, equilibrated but slight flavor.

500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a tiny dark brown head. Aroma of smoked wood, caramel and bread. Quite salty taste. Almost no carbonation. A bitter finish. Not my piece of cake.

rotaman14 (193) - Potsdam, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2014
Smoked ham, coke, nuts, plum. Amber body with a medium beige head. Soft, medium-bitter taste, with an aftertaste of smoke. Smooth, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Oh, that is quite a nice one indeed.

Poured from bottle into a tulip: pours dark brown with a one finger off white head. Aroma of smoked meats, caramel, and more smoke. Flavor is light smoke, caramel, nuts, and dried leaves. Medium body, slick mouthfeel, a little bitter. Nice beer.

Hrc_Cro (157) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 5, 2014
0.5l bottle. Black color with medium brown head. Strong smoky smell. Strong aroma of smoke and some nuts. Pleasant bitterness in finish and overwhelming smoky flavor. Very interesting beer.

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.
