4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A deep red beer with a good head. The aroma is tar and smoke dominated. And the flavor is very powerful and dominated by tar and smoke. Really a great beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark brown, with a nice, lasting beige head. Rather dry, not that heavy but solidly smoked throughout. The smoke almost drowns any other flavour, and takes some getting used to. But whenerver that happens, this turns out quite quenching. I doubt that smoked beers will ever be a clear favourite though. 091200

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub.
Clear brown coloured with a solid brown head.
Aroma of malts, smoke and hops.
Smokey flavour of malts, wood and hops with some sweetness.
The bottled edition is more smokey but less sweet and hoppy (6-3-6-3-13).

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Brown colour with minor brownish head. Aroma is made of wet burnt wood (or coal). Taste of burnt wood (alt. smoked fish). Extremely smoky. Some of my friends love this one, I didn’t like it that much, but it sure differs a lot from "normal" beers.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Dark amber with rich, stable head. Densely smokey aroma, quite reminiscent of smoked ham. Full bodied with big maltiness and nicely salty, very bitter finish. The intense woody smokiness is there all the way through. Simply a world class beer in it’s own style. When had from the wood at Schlenkerla it gains yet another dimension - combining intense flavours with Franconian drinkability and softness. If you’ve only had it from bottle or keg - you don’t know what you’re missing!

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2013 bottle at home ... brown coloured ... odd smokeyness mixed with Dashi (japanesse fish stock) ... malt fruits Basic malt beer with the meaty smokeyness coming in back and linger. cant quite get what flavour is. Much more drinkable that id expect but no desire to retry.
