Idiosynkrasie (6407) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2015
500ml bottle [this item of Bamberger BRauchtum has kindly been placed at my disposal by bartlebier]. Clear, deep copper colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Smoky aroma with well-known ham fragrance in appropriate intensity. Taste is dry, smoky, minimally leathery, a touch of sticking-plaster, subtle sweetness. Lacks a bit of body to fully integrate the smoky spillover. If I had to explain the difference to Schlenkerla’s gems, I’d say: This simply hasn’t the capacity to stimulate imagination (or associative power) in the same amount.

Tap@Akkurat. Brunrödsvart vätska med kaffefärgat skum. Ljuvlig doft med lite inslag av rökighet och tjärpastill. Fantastiskt välavvägd balans i beska och sötma. Bra rökis!

jaghana (5491) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle 50cl, kindly shared by Bartlbier many thanks. An amber beer with low head, nose is very intense on smoked notes. Aroma is on caramel, lot of smoked notes, wet wood, peppery hops, grainy, bit rough at the beginning but the aroma and complexity became more evident at the finish, vegetable notes, cereals, good smoke, a quite robust beer.

bartlebier (3408) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2014
Bottled although at source (Lager, U and Bock vom Fass only), late 12/2014. Red copper pour topped by dense beigish cap. Earthy roasted berries and rustic beechwood block freshly basking in a faint winter sun: caramel, apple syrup, maple join on a perfectly poised, medium light palate. Perfect sessionabilty, never sweet or heavy: a finished liquid piece of regional tradition.

darkseduction (714) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2014
Flasche 50cl. Sanfter als der Gruppenprimus Schlenkerla. Etwas mehr Süße als beim Lager, dafür weniger Hopfen. Sehr süffig und äußerst gefällig!

McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2014
On tap at their brewpub in Bamberg. The beer pours out in a deep dark brown colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of campfire and peat. Taste of smoke, peat, torf, woods, campfire, barley, malt and ligth smoked bacon. For that style quite drinkable and good.
