4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wild smoky nose, smoked meat, bacon, with some underlying malt. Very dark brown body, with a reddish tint, medium off-white head. The flavor is not as smoky as the aroma, subtle sweet malt notes, the smoke is still there, but is far more pleasant and not as aggressive as in the nose, ends on a nice little hop note. Very nice beer.

Clear brown with ruby edges, quickly diminsing tan head. Huge smoky, salty, bacon aroma. Some light sweetness. The flavor is a mirror image of the aroma, maybe a bit more salty. The body is medium full, soft. As with all of Aecht Schlenkerla’s beers, good stuff. Yum. Now all I need is a roasted whole pig to go witht this.

Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Light brown head. Aroma is dominated by smoke. Reminds me a little of bacon (don’t know why!!!) Flavour is smoky and sweet. Almost tar. Has a roasty smoked end. Good one.

WoW! This is not for the weak. Aroma is of smoked bacon, flavor is almost the same. Get past the first sip and it will grow on you. If you love BBQ this is the beer to accompany your summer parties. However, proceed with caution.

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.
