0.5l Bottle. Pours cloudy, brown colour. Nose is typical "Schlenkerla": smoky, caramel, malt. Very well balanced taste, not too smoky, a little sweetness. Full bodied, very nice drinkability. Must try!

thought I was picking up the urbock which I have tried and like; won’t do that again - disliked this and didn’t even finish the bottle. aroma - some nice smoke and some unpleasant wet rag and stinkiness. taste wasn’t much better - funky, stanky end. out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Smoked bacon aroma, but not as intense as others. Has that clear weizen texture without the yeast-forwardness. Meaty throughout. Full-bodied, a bit oily. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with a beautiful thick off white sticky head. Aroma is light sweet malts, grain, wood smoke. Taste has the smoked note less pronounced with a good balance with the refreshing weizen flavor (banana, spices) that comes out in the finish along with the smoke again. Light body, medium carbonation. Surprisingly good.

Pours a clear iced tea brown with a thin white ring. Nice smoky aroma. Descent smoked flavors with a somewhat tangy finish. OK but not as good as the other styles.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Schlenkerla / Bamberg Germany --- Nearly opaque amber brown color, smooth white head that drops to 1/2", splotches of lace. Taste is clear malt that has medium fizz, spice (especially coriander), then after the swallow, a hint of hops followed by light smoke that slowly strengthens as everything else fades. Surprisingly solid, awfully big and filling, but it is effective. I could drink it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle @ Green Sheep Bar. Hazy, deep amber color. Its aroma and taste is a fine mix of weizen and smoked characteristics. A bit thin on body and has a short finish. Otherwise it’s fine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2016 From a 500ml bottle on 12/6/2016. Pours a deep amber with a small head. Smells like smoky bacon with a bit of basement. Not surprisingly, the smoke dominates against some faint wheat notes. A bacon and fire ash beer with a wheat beer finish! Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very interesting and more than pleasant (unless you hate smoked beers), but not in the same class as the Doppelbock for mine.
