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

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, - AUG 30, 2013
one of those beers that sounds amazing on paper but disappoints... i mean the schenkerla maerzen is great, the urbock is even better, so therefore this should be unbelievable - but it doesn’t necessarily follow because once lagers get up over 7% it gets so much harder to make them work. for one thing the head here disappears in a second, hinting at fermentation issues. add in a strange medicinal oak smoke flavour to the alcohol flavour, and you get a big mess with the smoke and the hops and the sweet caramelly malt as well. what a shame, but at least they still make the urbock with the beech.

Pours dark brown thick smooth large light head from bottle. Very complex flavors of boch nutty, bitter, and strong very authentic smoke that is reminiscent of an open stove. There are aspects of the flavor that I like and ones that I don't but overall very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,5l Flasche. Tolle rotliche Farbe mit hohem Schaum. Sanftes Raucharoma. Malz, Vanille. Im Antrunk weicher Rauch und Karamel, dann Salami und Rauchfleisch. Der Rauch nimmt zu, wird aber nie unangenehm. Etwas Honig und Melasse. Alkohol ist gut eingebunden. Sehr runder Bock.

Erittäin vahva tuoksu ja maku. Savu oikeasti pääosassa muutenkin kuin lupauksissa. 8% ei maistu tämäntyylisessä tuotteessa yhtään liian vahvalta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kauge (1931) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle. BB 08.2017. Clear mahogany, modest fizzy head. Caramel sweet, a bit of a nettley herbal note, smoked sausages... Sweet and sticky. Dry finish. Not too pleasant, the smoke and sweetness don’t mix well IMO, I guess I’m just not a fan of old school smoked beers. Would have perhaps liked it more in winter with some greasy sausages and sauerkraut.

17Beer (343) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Smoky and malty with sweet undernotes. Pours a nice brown with a fast dissipating tan head. Very nice smooth and smokey with an edge in the finish. Very nice.

oczek2015 (417) - Przemysl, POLAND - JUN 14, 2017
Butelka 500ml z datą ważności do 09.2017 BARWA: bursztyn, klarowne. PIANA: średnia, jasno beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, niezbyt trwała. AROMAT: karmel w połączeniu nutami melanoidowymi i delikatnym alkoholem do tego wędzonka szynkowa, na skórze wychodzi delikatne żelazo. SMAK: ciemne pieczywo, gorzka czekolada, goryczka ogniskowo-popiołowa. Wędzonka bardzo dobrze balansuje słodką podbudowę, dość pełne z niskim wysyceniem, nie tak pijalne jak marcowe ale dobre.

SonOfAnarchy (440) - ST HELENA - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours deep amber body, with a pretty thick yet rather rapidly dissipating off-white head. Aroma of intense smoked ham, smoked sausage, bacon, slight notes of malt and wood. Taste is semi-dry; flavors of intense smoked ham/meat, some notes of wooden barrel, malt and ash in the background. Smoked meat and a bit of ash in the finish. Full-bodied, slick texture, low carbonation. Great aroma, balance and mouthfeel. This is what a smoked beer is all about.

KeefOz (1824) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2017
BB 09/2107. Poured a translucent (just) coppery-brown with thin light tan dense foam head that diminished quickly to a blotchy cap that laced OK. Carbonation moderate, very slow and medium to coarse. Aroma very strongly of natural open/camp-fire smoked bacon with undertones of sweet malt; alcohol well hidden. Taste initially of very strong open-fire like smoked bacon with sweet roasted caramel and hints of spice; quite sweet and malty; taste not as smoky as aroma; low bitterness; alcohol well hidden. Medium body. Very smooth with a nice sweet with moderately strong smoke on the finish. Nice.
