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

What an excellent smoke aroma as well as even MORE intense smoke flavor! Moderately malty and no bitterness. The only real campfire beer I've had. I'd like to see it aged in High West Campfire Whisky barrels.

It pours dark amber with red hues. It has a light brown head with tiny beading in the initial pour. It has moderate head retention. It has a pleasant bacon like smoke aroma. There is also a complex blend of oak and malty richness. The flavors has a combination of bacon like smoke with oak. There are background notes of malty richness and hints of dark fruit. It has a full body that is slightly heavy on the palate with smoke that lingers well into the aftertaste. Overall, this beer provides a good portion of smoke without overdoing it and also provides the background balance with rich malt and hints of dark fruits.

The oak smoke is outstanding. I love this beer. Being a Dopplebock it has that rich malt flavor to go with the smoke flavor. Can't beat this style from Bamberg. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wspaniała wędzonka serowa z solidnym, słodowym podłożem. Ciemno-miedziana barwa, piana zostaje. Bogaty, słodowy smak. Cały czas wędzonka jest wyczuwalna, i to bardzo przyjemnie. Bogaty słodowy, ale nie słodki, posmak. Goryczka niska, ale wyraźna, ładnie balansuje piwo. Gładkie, pijalne. Alkohol niewyczuwalny. Świetne piwo!

Piana niewielka, opada do krążka i tak zostaje. Kolor bursztyn klarowny. Aromat wyraźna dominująca wędzonka szynkowa, dymna, karmel melanoidyny, przyjemny. Smak, pełnia słodowa, słodycz landrynkowa, karmel, melanoidyny. Alkohol ukryty goryczka średnia do niskiej. Niestety moja butelka (dwa miesiące po terminie ważności) złapała brzydkie utlenienie w mokry karton, to znacznie obniża ocenę. Piwo dobre mimo wady, ale wielkiego wrażenia nie zrobiło.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2017 Woodsy and bready, mid-lo body, interesting combo between the bock and the smoky, well-balanced and doesn’t tire to drink at all, surely will be coming back many times to this classiq

Smoke nose and taste without being overpowering. Quite a light body. Malty flavours underneath. Good intro to smoked beers.

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
