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. www.Smokebeer.com

Bottle. BBE June 2011; Drank June 2011 - Stunning Ruby Red in colour. Very Smokey in both aroma and taste. Much smoother and subtler than the Rauchbier Marzen. Malty; smoke, toasty/roasty malts, caramel. Hoppy; spicy hops. Nicely balanced beer. Sweet smoky malty throughout. Very drinkable. Great stuff. Lovely Smoked Beer! (2011-06-17)

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 Tap (Szynkarnia, Wroclaw). Klarowne o miedzianej barwie. Piana w kolorze przybrudzonej bieli, slaba ale z wyraznym lacingiem. Wedzonka intensywna o szynkowym charakterze choc pojawia sie tez delikatna nuta ogniskowa. W smaku goryczkowe od wedzonki, sciagajace, lekko taniczne, szczypiace na jezyku ale bardzo przyjemne tonowane mocna podbudowa slodowa z nutami malanoidynowymi, lekko slodkimi na finiszu choc piwo ma wyraznie wytrawny charakter. Jednym s?owem klasyka w najlepszym wydaniu.
