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

MarcinG (755) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2017
Butelka 500ml. Ciemno-miedziany kolor. Piana obfita,lekko zoltawa,pozostaje dosc dlugo. W zapachu wyrazna wedzonka ,ktora niestety tlumi inne zapachy. W smaku takze wedzone nuty sa przewodnimi. Pojawiaja sie jednak slodkie posmaki karmelu lub toffi .i lekkie owocowe tony z suszonych owocow. Niezle piwo o swietnym balansie.

herrklemann (162) - AUSTRIA - MAR 29, 2017
Bottle from SinH4 - thanks for supplying me with the good stuff! Pours a clear reddish brown, with a nice, off-white head. Subtle smoky aroma, fruity, caramel, slightly roasty, perfumy, herbal, more subtle then the Urbock. Medium sweetness, with light bitterness, salt and lingering tartness. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Slightly tart finish.
Good balance, more subtle than the Urbock, more fruity ethers in the nose.

Oleiste, pełne piwo. W aromacie i smaku świetna wędzonka. Nie sądziłem, że piwo wędzone może być tak dobre :)
