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

Dedollewaitor (16755) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2011
Tap @ Zly Casy, Prague. Pours dark unclear brown with a creamy white head and lacings. Chewy malty. Smoke, caramel, campfire and bacon. Smooth and subdued smoke profile/balanced. Full bodied. Dammn lovely!

A: The beer pours amber in color with a soapy white head to go with it. S: Definitely quite a bit of smoke, though not quite as campfire heavy as their other beers. There’s a definite oak smell to this (apparently the use of oak is one of the main things that sets this beer apart from their others) it, and just very woody overall. A slight meaty character, which I tend to pick up in smoked beers. T: I can actually taste a decent amount of sweetness from the beer, which has a doppelbock recipe. There is still a lot of smoke and a hint of saltiness to it. There is a touch of fruit underneath, maybe apples. Perhaps it’s the saltiness, but I actually do get some bacon here. M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation. The smoke sort of lingers on the tongue. D: While their beers aren’t always my thing, this was surprisingly good. Certainly quite smokey, but enjoyable and different.

bhensonb (16389) - 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.

MiP (16143) - 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.

Stuu666 (16067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2018 Bottle at home. Pours deep amber, nose is oaky, smoked sausage, taste is sweet, malty toffee, dry, peaty smoke. 4 Bottle number x. This deserves a higher score, chewy caramel and toffee, beechwood, dry, smoky, a hint of fruit there too. 4.3

imdownthepub (15910) - 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.

DSG (15759) - 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.
