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.

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.

500 ml bottle to a pint. Dark Amber brown with tan head. Nice balance of sweet toasted malt and smoked pork. Very tasty! Schlenkerla 4th best rauchbier ever.

Gravity keg at Akkurat. Dark brownish/amber with a medium slighty tan head. Nice aroma of smoke, ham, salt and wood. Taste of smoke, ham, wood and salt. The finish was bitter. Refreshing and really drinkable. A very nice beer.
