MAGICuenca91 (77) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - FEB 25, 2017
Bebida en vaso a partir de botella de 50 cl. Una cerveza espectacular, pero sobre todo original. Muy diferente a cualquier cosa que haya probado antes. En cuanto a su aroma, es potente y esta cerca de rozar la perfección. Es ahumado que en momentos recuerda al bacon, salmón ahumado e incluso café. Su apariencia es oscura, casi color café, con algunas ligeras notas rubí y una densa y espesa corona de espuma color beige que se mantiene constante durante toda la toma. Es sabor es muy particular y va en consonancia con su aroma. Poderoso y ahumado. Para terminar, su paladar está a una gran altura y deja notas de café.

TrefwoordPunk (1055) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2017
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a very dark opaque with a small white head and an aroma of toffee, smoked eel, roasted malt, raisin, dough and bacon. The taste is medium sweet and very smokey, this is a really nice smoked beer!

Bottle with wptully in cologne germany. Cola color with coffee like look. Off white head. Smoke aroma with a little bit of the sea. Almost smoked raisin. Very smoky taste. Almost a smoked fish taste. Some scotch ale taste. Lighter and less sweet than expected . Smoke it if you got it.

Acaro (26) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2017
Aroma: Wooden smoke Appearance: Dark brown color with clear liquid and tann head. Taste: Heavy bitterness Palate: Full body with a creamy texture, soft carbonation and a smoked long finish Overall: Surprise for the senses; it has been my first smoked beer and it is REALLY smoked. I like it a lot (of course it goes really good with a smoked cheese but an old cheddar is nice too with this beer).

kluczbork (191) - Wroclaw, POLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle. Aroma- strong smokiness (mainly ham rather than wood). Dark copper, clear, with a nice, beige head and good-looking lacing. In the taste, smoky notes are balanced with a typical Marzen ones- light caramel and bread. Medium-low, herbal-earthy bitterness in the aftertaste, combined with delicate roastiness. Medium-low-bodied, with a medium carbonation. Tasty beer.

SonOfAnarchy (324) - ST HELENA - FEB 19, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours very dark ruby, off-white head. Aroma of intense smokiness in the kind body smoked ham and wood. Wonderful. Taste is medium sweet, low bitterness; flavors of smoked ham, slight smoked wood, slight smoked malt. Medium to full body, slick texture, average to high carbonation. What can I say, just another stellar smoked brew by Schlenkerla.

Really like this beer. Smokey aroma. Black appearance and good head (from the bottled version). However, lovely taste - medium sweetness, slight bitterness, smokey. Great balance to it - the smokiness is distinctive but not overpowering. Nice long finish and a good body.

MikeBeermaster (621) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Pleasant aroma of smoked bacon with some wooden barrel background. Clear dark brown in the glass with minimal head, but lacing is still noticeable. Taste is especially malty with woody smokiness which senses the palate. Bit of caramelized sugar and some roastiness. Nice one, not overhealmed with smokiness.

Manslow (1365) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Butelka 500ml. pite w domu. Kolor brązowy, klarowne, piękna gęsta, drobnopęcherzykowa piana bardzo ładnie osiadająca na szkle. Aromat wędzonki w całym pomieszczeniu już po otwarciu butelki , słody i boczek. W smaku trochę palonych słodów, łagodne na podniebieniu, suszone owoce, śliwki. Słodycz z lekką goryczą, doskonałe piwo.
