UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 Bottle. Poured a clear medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) off-white creamy head that was mostly lasting and had fair lacing. The aroma was of a heavy smoked malt, a very light bitter hop and a moldy leathery yeast with a heavy note of smoke and meat (like a smoked ham). It tasted a little acidic and mildly malty and a little bitter with an intense smoky flavor from start to finish. The flavor lasted an extremely long time and all I could taste was the liquid smoke that was left behind on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was about half way to medium in body with a watery yet creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Overall a very different brew than what I am used to, it was kind of like drinking liquid smoke straight out of the bottle. I have had other Smoked Beers but none this intense. Needless to say, not all beers are for everyone and this one is definitely not for me!!

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.

NOTA DE CATA: - Color: Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen 50cl es de color prácticamente negro. - Espuma: Densa y de color beige - Boca: Fuerte. El toque a malta y caramelo queda en segundo plano cuando toma poder el ahumado, que es difícil de calificar como dulce o como amargo. Al final aparece un toque picante. ELABORADOR: Schlenkerla Rauchbier GRADO ALCOHÓLICO: 5 %

BillWyce (781) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Poured clear nut-brown with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of wood smoke, with perhaps a touch of caramel underneath. Body is medium, but a touch watery. Lightly dry finish. Flavor of nutty malt with a touch of bright citrus at the back. The smoke is present throughout, but really shows at the back and lingers pleasantly in the finish. A touch of a metallic note at the back as well.
