Wood and bacon in the taste and the aroma. Also,caramel malts and smoke (a little BBQ). The beer that comes in my mind when I think about Rauchbiers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
