The smokey nose was the first thing I noticed until I took my first sip. The smoke permiated the beer, and yet it was nicely balanced with a hint of sweetness at the start and a nice hopped bitterness in the end. I thought this was a very good example of a rauchbier. I think I have also found a new beer to make my BBQ sauce with. I enjoyed this beer and will more than likely drink it again.

anstei (935) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 15, 2016
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!

Hanoi (765) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
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.
