While for the classic "Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier" traditionally beech has been - and still is - used, the malt for "Schlenkerla Oak Smoke" is kilned with Oak wood. The resulting Schlenkerla Oak Smoke Malt has a smoother and more multi layered smoky note than the intensely aromatic Beech Smoke Malt. The hence complex smokiness in the "Schlenkerla Oak Smoke" is paired with the multifaceted bitterness of finest Hallertau aroma hops. With 8% alcohol and amber color it matures for months in the deep brewery cellars underneath Bamberg into a special treat for smoke beer lovers.

deyholla (16830) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2020 Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber red with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a rich wood smoke with a bit of bacon and a touch of sweet grains underlying. Flavor has a rich sweet wood smoke with a bit of bacon and a light sweet grain note.

kamanova_boy (1553) - Bratislava, SLOVAKIA - JUL 25, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2020 Dark brown colour, medium off-white head, aroma of smoke, wood, plums. Taste is quite bitter, medium sweet, smoke, wood, plums, caramel. Heavy on nose, heavy on tongue. Very well

stantheman (1822) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2020 A 50 cl book from Liberty Wine Merchants on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. A 4 ounce pour, well chilled, in a small snifter. A deep reddish brown color with a white head and a pronounced smoky nose, oh yeah! Ditto wood smoke on the palate alongside delicious caramel and roasted grain. This is about as good as it gets for doppelbock, and it’s a sipper despite the modest ABV.

tfontana (2763) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 1, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2020 Bottle (no date) pour from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is clear dark amber-red with lazy, light sparkle, finger-width creamy beige head with excellent retention and trace lacing. Aroma is strong bacon-campfire smoke. That's it. Taste is burnt wood (couldn't tell you if it was oak or not) and bacon dominant with background sweet malts, vaguely caramel and suggestion of dark fruits. Smoke is less prominent as it warms. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth texture, average carbonation and mellower lingering smoke flavor in the finish. Overall, the smoke is a bit too dominant. It's distinctive and pretty good but I wish it complemented the malts rather than smothering them.

tatinek (79) - Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2020 Pour is moderatly thick with a clear deep reddish amber color, Aroma is sweet and smoky roasted malt. Taste is much more pronounced than the aroma lets on. There is a smooth oak bitterness present with much more complexity than I can describe. Mouthfeel is not as heavy as I had expected and is quite smooth. Well balanced for an 8% beer.

nazzty (1531) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2020 Pours dark brown with a nice, foamy head. Slightly smoaky with sweet malty notes of dried fruits and brown sugar.

borowik (988) - Bytom, POLAND - JUN 10, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2020 Wszystko na miejscu. Wędzonka wyraźnie na pierwszym planie, karmel, melanoidyny.

jlzm (132) - SPAIN - JUN 2, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2020 Fundamentalmente sabor ahumado como a beicon. No es ni súper potente ni muy definido está esperaba más.

SVD (3780) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2020 Bottle at home, dark red-brown beer, small head. Aroma is malt, smoke, smoked ham, wood, Taste is the same, subtle smoke, sweet, bitter, long dry smokey aftertaste, very nice.

KansaiBeerLvrs (7149) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 10, 2020
UPDATED: APR 10, 2020 Schlenkerla Doppelbock 8% Subtle sweet Smokey aroma on a pretty brown body. The taste is fresh Ashley smoke with a pleasing sweetness in the finish/aftertaste. So different from their other brews I’ve had.
