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

Rune (12063) - Troms, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
500ml bottle brought back home from NWAF 13 in Manchester. Enjoyed in company of Finn at his place. Beige bubbly head leaving fragile lacing behind. Crystal clear, brown coloured body. Prominent smell of sausages and burnt wood. Barbecue sausage in flavour with a nice touch of oak vanilla behind. A little roastiness to a semi-sweet ending. Enjoying (Troms, 08.05.2013).

Nice amber/orange color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of rich smoked meat, & burnt oak; Flavor of smoky sweet malt, caramel, dark fruit, syrup, and spice; Nicely balanced; Cant get enough of the aroma and smoke - not as good as their Urbock but still quite nice.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Amberish, dirty, hazy, little to no head or lacing.   Strong band-aid and smoked aroma.   I am hoping its a bit better because the band-aid smokiness is something I cannot stand. &nsp On the tongue its much better, smooth, smokey, very clean, with only minimal amounts of band-aid.   Smoked aspects are minor to moderate.   For a Doppelbock it seems a little weak.   Has a bit of sweetness to it.   Not very big in body and mouthfeel, fairly average.   Soft band-aid and smoked malts on the finish.   A bit more plastic like than I prefer, but its smooth with a nice maltiness.   As it warms, the band-aid comes out a bit more.   Dont drink this one while its warm folks!   I was expecting a bit more from this one.

Beer61Mark (8) - - MAY 3, 2013 does not count
One of the great rauchen beers from Bamberg, Germany. This one made with Oak smoke (hence Eiche). Dopplebock, and 8% alcohol. Probably the best of its class. Taste reminds this southern boy of barbeque!

Derek881 (1268) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a wet, hazy rusted copper/light brown color with a deep rust hue and a modest bubbly and foamy off-white head with shorter retention, very little cling, and light lacing. The aroma had a very strong smoky oak character, with a whiskeyesque quality, and some earthy, grainy tones; only a light hint of caramel malt. Its taste was also fairly strongly smoky and oak-dominated, with a light undertone of sweet caramel malt. The body was fairly light with low carbonation and not much body or mouthfeel, with a watery consistency. Very interesting beer, unlike any I remember having with the smoky characteristics.

stravale (2971) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 28, 2013
Bottle from Tomlinsons, Inverness [280413]
Caramel brown, frothy off white head that dissipates to nothing
Aroma - Massive smoked wood, very aromatic, burnt bacon, grilled smoked sausage, phenolic, far too much smoke
Taste of woody smoke, smoky bacon, caramel malts, burnt edges of sausage, im not liking the smoke, caramel malts, dont get the hops, bit phenolic, the smoke flavour isnt great
Palate - Thin to medium body, soft carb, quite sweet malts. Finisd as main flavour, lingering strong smoked wood, phenolic, way too smoky
Overall - This is a Marmite beer. Its way too smoky - really has to drunk with smoked cheeses and sasusages...but to be honest id rather have a beer less smoky

ManVsBeer (9709) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2013 Deep copper with an amber glow but no head. This has an extreme peat smoked aroma with a wooden smoked aftertaste. It has a sweetness in its taste and is a little sticky in its texture.
