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

MiP (15981) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Bottle, 8.0%. Distinct smoke aroma, but not too much, also some malt. Clear brown colour, seems to have a little red. Tan head, semi-frothy and semi-stable. The flavour has a distinct smokiness and a rather sweet maltiness. The finish is drier and perhaps a bit more aggressively hopped than their Rachbier Märzen. Does not really taste 8%, but it is very good.

Scopey (15885) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Could have sworn I had already rated this.... Bottle from Bitter Virtue, Southampton. It pours rich deep red - brown with a thick, foamy white head. The nose is rich, oily, big smoked character, smoked meats, honey glazed ham and smoked bacon fries. The taste is crisp, big, rich smoked action, bitter - sweet, earthy, charred wood, toffee, smoked meats, touch of spice, smoked oily essence and fruit cake with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Quite intense, but a truly great smoked beer.

bhensonb (15852) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy orange amber with a little whiteish head. Aroma is rough/harsh smoke. Med body. Flavor of smokey malt. Tobacco hints. Oak? Apparently lost in the smoke. A flavorful beer that went really well with the homemade chili.

imdownthepub (15421) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Bottled, 500ml at Schlenkerla in Bamberg. Dark amber with off white head. There is a deep smokiness to this, smoky bacon with a hint of smoked paprika, smooth and luscious, silky and full of flavour. The alcohol fills the palate, the apricot fruitiness adds character. Lovely.
