My favourite of the Spezials. Not as meaty and smokey as Scherlenkerla but with more depth of character. Dark Amber bordering on dark Brown. Full smokey fish nose. Rich tasting, smoke is seamless with the fantastic body. A true classic.

Ambro206 (350) - ITALY - APR 9, 2016
Birra per antonomasia della tradizione brassicola francone. Si presenta nel bicchiere di color ambrato molto scuro con riflessi ramati e cappello di schiuma color crema. Al naso parte aggressiva con aromi di speck e fumo di legna verde. In bocca la dolcezza dei malti dona sentori di miele e bilancia leggermente la situazione. Il corpo medio leggero e la carbonatazione elevata pulisce la bocca.

Zlotta (1329) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2016
0.5 l bottle from De Bierkoning, best before February 2016. Clear, deep red amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish-malty and moderately smoky aroma of caramel, raisins, dates and some smoked ham. Sweetish-malty and moderately smoky taste of caramel, raisins, dates, nuts and some smoked ham, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately smoky finish. Medium body, slightly creamy to oily mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Well-balanced, might have even more smoke for my taste, great palate for that abv and highly drinkable as well. Very nice!
