COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

DSG (15298) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Slightly hazy deep amber. Great smoked sausages aroma with some wood. Malty flavor, rather sweet, with caramel, a bit of nuts, lots of smoked meat, and a drier finish, smoky and woody. Medium-bodied, oily and pretty rounded mouthfeel. Very good.

dinkle50 (1557) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Huge smoke notes in the aroma. Thin head with some lace. Taste is like a hot dog or smoked ham. Easy drinking with a medium mouth. Hands down one of the better smoked beers I’ve had in the style.

allmyvinyl (11073) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle shared - cheers Steven! Pours a clear reddish brown with thin white head. Big nose of smoke, burnt wood, brown sugar. Taste follows through, less bacon-y than the beech smoked beer. Some sweetness on the finish which is very nice.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Pours a red/copper with not much head to speak of. Instantly, the smokey nose hits you. Smells like a campfire mixed with a smoker at a BBQ restaurant. Nice malty character with the smoke character just right. Rich and robust brew. I bet this would be awesome with some ribs.

SarkyNorthener (4907) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma is great, reminds me of Bavarian smoked cheese, without the cheese (contradiction I know) and wood. Taste is smoked sausage, wood, yeast and some sweetness to counterbalance the whole thing. A beer with a great aroma and very good taste.

daje (4548) - NORWAY - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle at Amundsen, march 26th 2013. Clear amber body, with a small disappearing light brown head. Aroma of campfire, bacon, caramel and fruity hops. Taste is smoky with burned wood, bread, rye and a solid dose of caramel. Very pleasing balance. Aftertaste of smoke and dark fruits. A good one!

jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle at Edelweiss Restaurant in CO Springs. Brown in color with a small beige head. Aroma is of smoke, salt, malt, caramel, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is of smoke, light peppers, brown sugar, cured meat, and a hefty malt backbone.

4.5
Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - MAY 28, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2015 Intenso e limpido color granato con un fragile strato di schiuma biancastra. Aroma affumicato con sentori di legno, cenere, fumo e zucchero bruciacchiato; gusto mediamente dolce e caramellato, perfettamente in sintonia con note di legno affumicato, cenere e malto abbrustolito. Morbidissima al palato, corpo medio lieve e rotondo, effervescenza debole, struttura meno "ruvida" della Marzen... in sintesi ottima per il sottoscritto!

Rob_D_UK (1366) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2013
Poured a reddish color with a big foamy head. Aroma of wood, smoke and BBQ. Flavor was very nice; not over the top smoky. Wood, caramel, wood, some yeast. Soft on palate

angelkostvo (1248) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 17, 2013
Ruby color with almost no head. Aroma of smoked meat, ash, malts, brown sugar, bananas, clove may be. Taste is light to medium sweet, smokey flavor, a bit sour. Medium body creamy texture, soft carbonation. The ABV is very well hidden.
