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

Fatehunter's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
Fatehunter (2603) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 15, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Transparent amber color, only the faintest head. Rich malt smell, lots of smoke, but a "clean" smelling smoke with a crispness to it. The smoke is first in the taste, followed by the traditional doppelbock maltiness, then the smoke overpowers the malt again. It is really a smoke show here. Fairly sweet throughout too. Soft texture, medium body, low carbonation but still tingles the tongue. The doppelback flavor is lost in the smoke and the appearance was average. Still a good drink.

Amazing beer. It gives you a smokey journey, until it makes place for a very refined sweetness. King of the smoke beers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 Rødbrun i glasset. Spegepølse, rugbrød, malt i næsen. Smager lidt af fad og røg. Fin balance og mindre overvældende end jeg regnede med.

A beautiful balanced and smoky doppelbock. Dark amber, rich and delicious. A great cold wet night companion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Zdecydowanie najsłodsza Schlenkerla, jaką piłem. Ciut za słodka dla mnie. Poza słodyczą wszystko pięknie.

Schlenkerla, die wichtigste Mahlzeit des Tages. Im Glas schönes Kupferrot, in der Nase Schwarzwälder Schinkenplatte auf Vesperholzbrett mit frischen Bauernbrot. Im Trunk unfassbar vollmundig - als beiße man in eine geräucherte Keule. Kein bisschen alkoholisch. Mittig süßlich, fast schon süffig. Hinten wird's dann holzig, sanft. Der absolute Oberknaller. Macht micht richtig Stolz, in Bamberg zu wohnen. Ich verdrücke ein Räucher-Tränchen und nehm noch nen Schluck.

500ml bottle. Clear very dark amber with small beige-brown head. Aroma is typical Schlenkerla smoke with smoked ham, bacon and smoked pork as well as sweet dark bready malts and a light woody touch. Taste is sweet dark bread, wood, smoked ham, sootier campfire smoke and charred malts. Medium mouthfeel, light carbonation and charred malt aftertaste with almost sooty smokiness.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo. Pours red amber with a fading small white head. Aroma of smoked malt & smokey bacon, more of the same on the taste. Light/medium body. Great stuff

From bottle in dimpled mug. Pours reddish copper with off white head that faded quickly. Aroma of smoked meat that permeated the taste as well. Hallertau more noticable as it warmed. Rich & tasty with malt sweetness providing balance
