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

ogonczyk (136) - Ruda Slaska, POLAND - JAN 30, 2017
Draft. Strong aroma of smoked ham, some malty bread and grainy notes but smokiness is overwhelming. Very full and thick mouthfeel with heavy smoky taste. Very well balanced sweetness, smokyness and bitterness. Classy!

stekzwolowiny (23) - Czstochowa, POLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Piwo w kolorze bursztynowym, piana obfita, niezbyt ładna, ale długo się trzyma, w aromacie słody, bardzo przyjemna, zbilansowana wędzonka, mnie się kojarzy z dobrą szynką, w smaku znacznie mniej wędzonki, nisko-średnia goryczka, pojawia się też alkohol, piwo nie jest przesadnie słodkie. Ciało spore, w ustach oleiste i gładkie, wysycenie średnie. Świetny klasyk, w dobrej cenie, bardzo ułożony i przyjemny w odbiorze.
