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

poured into a dimple glass it produced barely any head. it had a nice amber color. A nice smokey aroma hit my nose. the flavors were malt forward with a subtle hint of smoke. its paired well with my cheese and cracker snack

herrklemann (155) - 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 :)

Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has wood, bacon smoke, caramel. Copper coloured beer with a medium sized white head. The taste is light bitter and has caramel sweetness, wood tones, oak. Very nice stuff.

Maakun (4813) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Very nice deep reddish amber with small off white head. Smoked sausage, light kale/mash/gravy classic Dutch stampot. Ash, caramel, bacon, lots of campfire. Medium sweet and light bitter. Bit over medium bodied. Yes, its a nice beer but I really just dont get rauchbier and itll never be something I really enjoy. Id enjoy this more without the smoke I think.

Hardened (87) - POLAND - MAR 19, 2017
Zapach wędzenia/dymu i słodw. W smaku przepyszna wędzonka, drewno i ponownie słody idące w zapasy z wytrawnością od wędzenia. Bardzo bogato, oleiście i pysznie! Niewyczuwalny alkohol.

Barwa bursztynowa, piana niestety słaba. Piękny zapach mięsnej wędzonki, w tle bakalie, słodowość. W smaku gęste, wręcz likierowe. Czuć wysoki balling, ale wcale nie czuć alkoholu. Polecam.

Echon (480) - rhus, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2017
Mahogny. Strong but balanced smoke, sausages, campfire, and caramel malts. Full, sweetish taste that finishes dry, lightly bitter and lightly smoky. Full body, and a smooth texture. Overall, a great doppelbock. Rich, tasty and harmonic. Currently the best smoked beer I have had.
