AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Nice, hearty nose with an interplay of smoke and malty goodness (caramel, smoked ham, bacon ice cream, a bit of wood...). Can’t comment much on the palate, as the bottle was mishandled. Solid taste with moderate bitterness and sweetness, with a lingering smoky aftertaste. Very nice.

Klart rødbrunt med hvitt skum. Intens duft og smak av røkt kjøtt. Veldig lettdrikkelig.

motthes (165) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
Das Rauchbier der Brauerei Heller in Bamberg ist eines meiner Favoriten! Wiedererkennungswert 100%!!! Ein wunderbar rauchiges Malzaroma mit einer geräucherten Krone, Geil! Ein guter Schinken und dieses Bier dazu ist ein Traum! Die urige Wirtschaft in der Bamberger Altstadt ist sehr zu empfehlen. Ich kann Ersttester mit negativer Bewertung sehr gut verstehen, da Ich selbst auch skeptisch war! Auch die Bamberger sagen: Das Schlenkerla schmeckt erst ab dem Dritten! Zahlreiche Auszeichnungen sprechen für dieses wundervolle Bier!

PowY (595) - AUSTRIA - APR 27, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark red-brown with a beige head. The aroma is very smoky, bacon, ash, strongly roasted coffee. Medium body with a soft carbonation, a light sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is malty, caramel, smoked grain, honey, hints of apples and again with a lot of smoke and bacon.

oczek2015 (390) - Przemysl, POLAND - APR 24, 2017
Butelka 0,5 z datą ważności do 05.2017. BARWA: jasno brunatne, klarowne. PIANA: obfita, kremowa, jasno beżowa, trwała, ładny lacing.AROMAT: bardzo przyjemna bukowa wędzonka przypominająca wędzoną szynkę, bekon, momentami nawet nuty kojarzą ce się z oscypekiem z grilla. Naprawdę przyjemny ,stonowany i trwały aromat. SMAK: podobnie jak w aromacie ale delikatnej, można wyczuć słodowość pod palonością i delikatnie popiołowym finiszem. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, gładkie, średnio pełne, pijalne.

Appearance - black, Aroma - bacon-esque smokiness. Taste - ashtray. Palate - didn’t pay too much attention as I was too preoccupied with finding it disgusting. Overall - the bacon-esque smokiness promise something interesting, but it turns out to just be ashtray. I really, really disliked it, and the only reason I’m semi-glad that I tasted it is so I know now how your archetypical rauchbier tastes and that I should pass them on.

Sircatis (235) - FRANCE - APR 14, 2017
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Achetée au E-Center en Allemagne. Bière très foncée. Un nez de salée et fumé comme du lard. Ça sent aussi le grillé. En bouche le grillé ressort plus. Goût très complexe. Bière étonnante. Une première pour moi. Mais plutôt agréable à déguster.

Derbeth (867) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 14, 2017
Bottle with expiry 04/2017. Dark brown colour, nice frothy head that stays long, Aroma is smoked - more bonfire, less ham, overall not very aggressive; also caramel. Light bitterness, light sweetness. Good.
