3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really want to be around for the first Thursday of October tapping sometime. Anywho, beer pours chesnut brown with a modertely retained beige colored head. Aroma is the absolutley most wonderful curing room smell of all time. Tons of bacon, ham, smoke, wood. Flavor is delightfully smokey and the base beer seems to be a bit more substantial than some of the other Schlenkerla’s. Flavors of smoke and sweet malt. The promise of the aroma outshines the flavor of this one, though I do like it a lot. I love the Schlenkerlas. Prost!!!

Bottle. Deep ruby in colour with a long lasting beige head. Aroma was of deep smoke, dried salted meats, roasted malt. Utterly amazing. The flavour was roasty, spicey, very smokey, roasted malts and meat. Rich medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes with a very long smokey bitterness. Wow, this is great stuff, a beautiful smoked beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2005 (on bottle) Either you dig or you don´t; I do. Darkbrown/black, with a pale withe head. Lghtly sharp smoked nose, witch becomes milder through the pour. "Schwartzbier"-taste and the caractaristic sent of open fire remains with a watery mouth in the finish.Like sucking on your shirt after a day in the woods with the barbieq and kids.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown/red with tan puffy head with medium retention. The aroma is, as expected, powerful smoked with some sweet malt coming through. The first sip of this beer is overpowering with burned sugar and bacon, but as you drink it it becomes more malty and balanced. Mouth feel is syrupy and fulfilling. As subtle as a fork in the eye, but a lot more pleasing.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep copper in color with a large off-white head. Aroma is of smoke,meat,wood, one hell of a barbecue. Smoked malt flavor from start to finish,wondeful. Great on it’s own with food, or if you can afford it, a great marinate.

Smells like Chicken, I mean, Turkey. Dark brown color with slight carbonation and minimal head. This thing reallly taste like smoked turkey neck beer. Beyond the smoke and turkey, I taste a hint of carmel, nuts, and maybe toast, all be it burnt toast.

oh, god. I AM NOT A FAN OF THIS STYLE> I COULD NOT FINISH THIS> smelled like a soagy pile of shes. Tasted worse thenthat. Sorry, I do not like it. This is a very strong version of the smoke style. Not even after 5 very hot spice nuclear wings can I get the taste out of my mouth and nose. If you are not a fan of smoke beers, lease, stay away. Sorry.
