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

1 pint 0.9 oz. bottle. Aroma is like opening a bottle of Liquid Smoke ... it’s just the scent of pure burned wood. Pours a cloudy, medium amber, with a light tan head that is tight and frothy, and lasts quite a while. Taste is medium sweet with a hint smoke, but I really can’t make out any distinct flavors (which is unusual for me). It is medium bodied with a creamy texture. Carbonation is average and the finish is all smoke. Overall, it is an intriguing beer. Although, I do find it a bit too sweet for a smoked beer.

Pours a crystal clear copper color with a light beige, bubbly and fluffy head. Smoke is huge on the nose - burned wood, stale earth, roasted grains and sweet caramel form an intriguing force, enhanced by a whiff of sea salt. A small dose of dried herbs compliment to the profound malts, establishing a pleasant depth. Has a medium body with a slightly lower carbonation, which is still able to produce a light effervescence during the finish, countering a green tea hop bitterness. Although the smoke and maltiness are both profound, the mouthfeel remains refreshingly light. Tastes of a bakers chocolate covered toffee peak, gently entangled into earth, wood bark and a ridiculous amount of sweet and heavy smoke. Turns a little sweeter during mid palate with rock sugars enriching the malts, toned down by dry and herbal hops. Finishes surprisingly bitter with some lingering smoke and a well exhibited rustic malt sweetness. Huge and intense, but not too heavy or sweet Doppelbock, defined by its well build, smoky maltiness.

Derbeth (918) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 28, 2017
Bottle with expiry 05/2017. Copper colour, clear, rocky head that does not stay long. Aroma is bonfire, burned rubber, caramel, a bit of ash. Light bitterness, light sweetness. Soft carbonation, full body, but not cloying. Good, but not exceptional.

Pours reddish amber, bit of white foam. Aroma is nice malty and sweetish. Good stuff. Lager comes out, relatively weak body that goes smoothly. Oak, wood and bit of sweet caramel giving spectra character to the beer.

MarcinG (819) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2017
Butelka 500ml. Ciemno-miedziany kolor. Piana obfita,lekko zoltawa,pozostaje dosc dlugo. W zapachu wyrazna wedzonka ,ktora niestety tlumi inne zapachy. W smaku takze wedzone nuty sa przewodnimi. Pojawiaja sie jednak slodkie posmaki karmelu lub toffi .i lekkie owocowe tony z suszonych owocow. Niezle piwo o swietnym balansie.
