COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(First tapping every first Thursday of October) A smoked bock beer for Bamberg’s strong beer season (October through December). Matured for months in ancient rock-cellars underneath Bamberg and tapped freshly from the oakwood cask. Similar to, but much bigger than the classic Maerzen style.

Like the Märzen, this is a fantastic beer. Slightly more complex and balanced perhaps, the smokiness less in your-face. Full bodied. Like the Märzen: excellent.

Black with a reddish tint, almost no head. Smoked ham, tar, chocolate, caramel. Medium sweetness, very light bitterness. Nice and strong, prefer this to the Märzen.

This one is smoked from Beech Tree wood hence the world famous taste. The Oak smoked version ( green label ) is even more smooth and an absolute wonder in the world of smoked beers.

Intense smoke aroma, notes of ham, smoked eel etc., ashes, campfire. Taste is dry, smoky, moderate subtle sweetness, wood notes, hints of tar. Excellent, as we all know.

This one is very similar to the Marzen classic, but I prefer it because it has a more complex taste. While it is still extra smokey I can taste a bit more of the oakwood and it was a bit more smooth. A little less sticky than the Marzen. Good stuff.
