COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

W aromacie wędzonka, dym, szynka, suszone śliwki, oscypek, bogato i intensywnie. Z wyglądu rubinowe, klarowne, ładna beżowa piana. W smaku wędzone, kwaskowate, śliwkowe, susz wigilijny, słodkie, przyjemny dymny posmak. Pijalność wysoka, dość wodniste i lekkie. Ogólnie smaczne, wędzone, pijalne piwo

Il faut aimer la fumée pour apprécier cette bière. De très bon goût, je cherche encore la différence entre tous les modèles de Schlenkerla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This divisive brew is the best smoked iteration I have tasted, but it makes me sad because I get no kisses because mouth smell like fire pit (bb: like a sulfur anus from the depths of hell). It has a smoky ass campfire aroma and a dark amber red brown appearance with a thin head (bb: a campfire that a human was recently burned in). The taste is a chewy lagery smoke bomb with a bready body and nice coal aftertaste (bb: coal mined from the depths of the earth by slave labor). The palate is surprisingly drinkable for the style (bb: as in, you might not die). Good for wrapping up the series Review with Forrest MacNeil and for reading mystery novels to your boo boo in bed while hoping the stink of this wears off (bb: I hope so too!!!!!).

500mL bottle. Pours mahogany amber with a small beige head. Aroma is smoke, bacon, grain, toast, and some sweet malt. Taste is smoke, grain, light toffee, some smoked meat, light caramel, yeast, light wood, and light char. Some hoppiness. Smoky, earthy finish. A light berry-like fruitiness comes through as it warms. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel.

Bottle (from ebrowarium.pl). Pours dark copper with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is typical schlenkerla smoke, bacon, malt, caramel, some graininess. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, malt, smoke. Finish is caramel and really nice dry bitter (don't remember the other schlenkerlas being as bitter). Carbonation is rather high. Overall: great.

Flasche, 50cL. Ein funkelndes dunkles Kastanienbier mit einem großen weißen Schaumkopf; rauch leichter Karamell, Braten, Kräuternote. Mittlere Runde süß, leicht trocken frisch bitter; Lichtwärmende Atmosphäre. Mittlerer Körper, leicht trockenes, rauchiges, frisches Finish. Insgesamt toll!

Kolor: Bordowy, zamglony. Piana: Beżowa, średnio obfita, szybko się dziurawi i zaczyna opadać. Zapach: Wędzona szynka, drewno z ogniska i popiół, trochę karmelu. Smak: Słodowa słodycz, do której dołącza wędzona szynka zostają skontrowane przez delikatną goryczkę. Dobre ciało, niskie wysycenie, dobra pijalność. Nie jestem fanem koźlaków, ale to piwo wypiłem ze smakiem.
