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

Didnt like this one as much as the Urbock. It had very similar tasting notes, but the drawback to this one was that the mouth-feel was kind of thin and lacking compared to the Urbock. This is just a preference of mine. See my review of that beer for more info.

Bottle. Pours amber brown with off white head. Nose and taste of lots of smoke, smoked pastrami, smoked deli meat, bacon fat, oak and smoked caramel. Slight hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body.

brief_smile (110) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2013
Light brown colour with a small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma: like the classic Marzen but a bit sweeter - plenty of smoked meat, camp-fire, toast, caramel. Taste: again, similar but smoother - plenty of bacon, smoke, dark fruits, honey, some earthy notes. Bitter-sweet finish. Low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. No idea where the 8% is hidden. Delicious, but the more assertive Urbock just beats it for me.

Beautiful mahogany color. Aroma is pure smoked ham and bacon. Flavor is smoked meats and lush malt sweetness. This is rauch heaven.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2013
500ml bottle from Tomlinsons. Appearance and Aroma: Pours a flat medium brown body with a bit of fizz and a slight head. A whiff of smokey bacon, charred oak and sandalwood. Taste: Not heavy, fairly gentle. Its certainly got a woodland taste about it. Palate: Smooth, a bit oily and soft around the gob. Overall: Amazingly, it doesnt taste anything like 8% - most likely because of the unusual tastes. Its good, but not quite as awesome as their Rauchbier.

onceblind (8177) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Clear mrzen-like amber/copper orange. Semi faint nose of metallic campfire smoke, toast, and a whiff of bacon grease. Nice full palate but the flavor potency was oddly medium. Semi-sweet body with some light smokiness and some honey, and a very gentle ham tone.

Marduk (6765) - Reval, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle. Dark golden yellow color, small white head on top. Nice smoked bacon, slight woodyness, malty notes in aroma. Rubber, smoked wood, malty, straws, rye in flavor. Quite drinkable brew.

JohnRMurdoch (4567) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2013
500ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Medium brown colour, not much head. Smokey bacon aroma & flavour. A bit flat, malty aftertaste. Would go well with crisps decent but not outstanding. Does not feel like an 8% beer.

Vells (1674) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 28, 2013
Clear reddish amber with medium white head. Aroma.. intense smoked, quite malty, wood, smoked bacon Sweet. I like smoked meat and I like beer, thou these two things together wont work for me.
