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

waited awhile to try this and had high expectations - nice smoked aroma; good app but the taste didn't work for me - too bitter. the bitter and the smoke overpowered the beer. not enjoyable to me.

badhack (576) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 18, 2018
Smoke, savory like rich meats, caramel but not sweet, dark malt, bready malt, dark pour and lots of carbonation. Lots of smoke in the finish. Surprisingly bitter hops.

szczupaczu (281) - Rurzyca, POLAND - FEB 10, 2018
Wygląd piękny, rubinowy z obfitą ale krótkotrwałą, kremową pianą. Aromat słodkich, przejrzałych owoców z wędzonką - taką drewniano-mięsną. W smaku słodko, owocowo, wędzonka średnia, pięknie wkomponowana. Mimo tych wszystkich zalet piwo ciężkie do dopicia - tzn da się bez problemu ale im dalej tym mniejsza przyjemność. Butla 0.3 byłaby idealne. Tak czy siak świetne piwo.

datrael (667) - Krakow, POLAND - FEB 9, 2018
W smaku i aromacie dym, drewno, nieco szynki i oscypka, przyjemnie, słodko, całkiem intensywnie. Faktura tłusta, aksamitna, pijalność całkiem wysoka. Bardzo smaczne i przyjemne piwo

Szopeen (649) - POLAND - FEB 7, 2018
Głęboka, bursztynowa barwa, piwo idealnie klarowne, całkiem ładna piana. W aromacie dominuje wędzonka, szynkowa i oscypkowa. W smaku piwo ma więcej cech koźlakowych, jest bardziej słodko, melanoidynowo. Jest przyjemna pełnia, średnie nasycenie, goryczka raczej niska. Dobra rzecz.

rumore (951) - Rimini, ITALY - JAN 31, 2018
Draft at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours reddish brilliant, fairly transparent, with fluffy and persistent medium-high white foam. Aroma is moderately smoked. Body is fairly dense, with good carbonation. Taste is rich in sweetness and smokiness, with still relevant bitterness. Finish is long and malty and smoky.

Cavie (4905) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2018
Bottle. Clear red orange color. Beige head. Straight up smoke aroma, bacon, turkey, meaty. Flavor is meaty, smoky, straight...up. The smoke is so heavy it covers up all other elements of the beer. Not well balanced by any means. Great smoke character but certainly not top 50. Should have a harmonious marriage with the doppelbock character which are absent.

3.8
Scipio (1311) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2018
Pours a clear, dark red with a medium, off white head. This one has a huge smoky aroma. Its has oak, mild floral hops, and a little raisin. The taste has a subtle sweetness. Its rather dry and is just a touch bitter. As expected, the smokiness dominates upon sipping. I find a lot of caramel and bread, lesser fig, light raisin, as well as some oak. Smoky caramel aftertaste. Medium in body, with a thicker texture, and is a little lighter in carbonation. Your opinion on this one clearly rests on your stance on the style, as this is pretty extreme.

mclaren14 (411) - £ód¼, POLAND - JAN 22, 2018
Aromat: z butelki przyjemna, intensywna, ale gładka ogniskowa wędzonka, w dalszej warstwie czysta słodowość, ze szkła bardziej słodowo z lekką ziołowością podsuszoną na ognisku, ale dalej na pierwszym planie wędzonka Wygląd: barwa miedziana, klarowne, piana o barwie złamanej bieli podbarwionej bursztynem, drobnopęcherzykowa, rwąca się, trwała, zostawia ładny lacing Smak: słodkie i wędzone na pierwszym planie, słodkie chyba nawet bardziej, dalej wędzonka, bardzo szlachetna, głęboka, długo zostaje w jamie ustnej, słodowa podstawa, goryczka średnia, ściągająca Podniebienie: średnie nagazowanie, lekko wyklelające, pełne, taninowe, średnia pijalność Podsumowanie: wszystko spoko, wędzonka na wysokim poziomie, ale nie mój styl

EerieDrinks (378) - Malm�, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2018
3 finger head.off-white head. Clear, dark amber/ruby-ish coloured beer.

Aroma is heavily smoked charcuterie, toffee and some brighter, dried fruity notes.

Taste is smoked charcuterie, burnt malts, oak, raisins and toffee.

Mouthfeel is rich with a medium-low bitterness and a moderate sweetness. Slightly sticky. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: Aroma is just the like the other smoked beers from Heller but the taste impressed me. Complex with a seducing mouthfeel and really nicely balanced between flavours. Recommended, even for a guy who isn't particularly fond of smoked beers!
