The Original Schlenkerla Lentbeer is an unfiltered smokebeer, brewed according to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. Bottom-fermenting yeast gives the reddish brown lentbeer a natural cloudiness. Its smokey aroma is already noticeable in the smell, combined with a fine hoppy note. In the drink the fullbodied, highly drinkable lentbeer shows its strong malty flavour, rounded up with the smokey taste and a light bitterness. Due to the nourishing yeast, the Original Schlenkerla Lentbeer has the "Brotzeit already included" (German word for afternoon snack). Served / Sold: - Only during lent from Ash Wednesday to Easter - Only from the wooden keg at the Schlenkerla Data: Original Gravity: 14.5% Alcohol: 5.5% EBU: 32

Flaska 0,5 liter. Mörkbrun med röda inslag, smutsvitt frostigt skum. Dofter av malt, karamell, trä, rå bacon och aska. Smakinslag av bacon, lakritsrot, karamell och tjära. Medel mot stor kropp. Underbar rökighet i avslutningen, tillsammans med en sötma som är alldeles precis.

bartlebier (4217) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2016 50cl bottles, once shared by jfb at BKL ’15 München, full bottle bb08/2015 courtesy of idiosynkrasie. - Translucent maroon-auburn, nice beigish cap. Lovely nose of sweet smoked liquorice stick, woodsmoked salmon, caramel-cured meat and roots. Same balance of sweet and savoury in taste, fruity slowcured BBQ red apples, older maple syrup, along with a seamy-smooth yeast profile set it apart from the standard Märzen - not quite as chewy in mouthfeel as expected for the extra 0.5 abv though. Remarkable woody-dry finish, joining all kinds of natural bitterness. - "Liquida non frangunt ieiunium" indeed, but for those not fasting in autumn this particular masterpiece accompanies hearty smoked fish dishes even better. // Resampled from gravity cask at source, 2016-03: less sugary, all hues of damp, brackish and chthonic. Murky and earthy, like rain-trodden forest dirt, mulch and brackwater with dissolved beech bark in it. A campfire in a damp beechwood forest. Someone brought a pig brisket but won’t give you any. Memorable dirty nectar.
