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

lct-cpr, thin-lasting-wh-head, sticky-med-body, med-high-co2.

aroma: sweet meaty ^smoky.

flavor: sweet meaty leafy-hops T1, co2 smoky crml-malt leafy-hops T2, sweet-smoky-amber-malt T3, smoky sweet-bready-malt Ts, adjuncty-lager leafy-hops Tf.

the wonderful smokiness in the aroma and flavor is sweeter than the beechwood smoked schlenkerla beers (not sure if that is from the oak, or more malt, or less hops, or a combination). IMO, its not as hop-bitter as the marzen, or as malty as the urbock, and is a bit lighter on the palate than any of the others.

Magnificent, smoky with honey oak sweet taste, I would ascribe this to be maple-cured bacon on the list of Schlerkerla beers.

MiP (15378) - Snderborg, 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 Mrzen. Does not really taste 8%, but it is very good.

rauchbierlover (638) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2012
Wow! Thanks cesaro202 for sharing! Dark amber color with a minimal disappearing white head. Medium body, carbonation starts high, than slows. Slightly smoked aroma, caramel. Taste is sweet with a very pleasant smoked note which lasts on your tongue. Bittersweet

Pours a beautiful translucent mahogany with a small light colored head. Aroma of hunting lodge campfire. Tastes like it smells and no dissapointments.

Cant get enough of this fantastic smoked doppelbock. Pillowy head. Huge nose. The perfect taste of smoke and sweet deep malts. Rauchbier is an acquired taste for most. Once you acquire it youll feel like youre in a secret club. Schlenkerla makes rich and profound beers. They are among the best. I drink this beer in 500 mL usually three at a time. Its fantastic.

Bogman44 (6) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2013 does not count
Picky me...adjust the temp and reduce the bottle carbonation (swirling technique) to get a perfect creamy mouth feel, the aroma is reminiscent of fresh lit cigar. The caramel color gets you prepared for a sweet mouthful, as smoky a beer as Lagavulin is peaty to Scotch. This was enjoyed with Jamaican Jerk seasoned thick cut pork chops and sweet potatoes at harvest season.

Et sregent ryket l med malt som er ryket over eik og ikke bk. Det gir den er rund og balansert smak men en smak som likevel setter seg godt i ganen. Fargen er behagelig som en varm cognac og br serveres i avrundet sm stettglass. Schlenkerla Eiche lages kun for julehytiden kan vre vanskelig oppdrive. Likevel er den tilgjengelig visse tider p ret via importren Mjd Engros. Med eik som kilde gir det let en mer lievel en kompleks og sregen smak, og er til tross for dobbelbokk vre ikke s tung eller for kraftig, snarere mer elegant. Den elegante stilen er gjennomgende selvom let inneholder hele 8%. Man kan si at dette er en helt ny type/ utgave av begrepet " ryket l". I tillegg til egenrket malt bruker Schlenkerla aromahumle fra Hallertau.

O,5lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos, Greece Outstandind smoke beer. Really. If it was not a seaonal brew-only availble for December- I would drink that and nothing more all the year -when it needs a smoke beer, of course. And with a great dish. Not as much smoky in the mouth as the classic Maerzen one but thats why it get better. More complexity and an oily mouthfeel with a lovely, very long-lasting aftertaste of smoky sweet malt and bit bitter. Nice carbonation, right as it needs. Superb!
