3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
First some beer I’ve tried. Been drinking it for nearly a decade. Nice in the fact that it is first and foremost a smoked beer, and a marzen close behind which suits the smokiness. Gives it a refreshing edge, compared to most of the more stouty smoked beer I’ve tried. A light mouthfeel but suitable. Heavy smoke aromas and flavours; hickory wood chips. Small unobtrusive touch of cured deli meat; perhaps salami. Notes of leather. A great accompaniment for Oktoberfest fare and/or heavy deli sandwiches (ie: smoked blue cheese and all-out spicy salami. Or a classic Limburger and fried onion sandwich. Damn. Now there’s an idea!)

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Butelka 500ml. pite w domu. Kolor brązowy, klarowne, piękna gęsta, drobnopęcherzykowa piana bardzo ładnie osiadająca na szkle.

Słodycz z lekką goryczą, doskonałe piwo.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500 ml bottle.
A distinct smoky flavour and aroma that brings notes of smoked ham and smoked sausages. An earthy bitterness there is to be found that together with the smoky flavour really gives this beer a punch to it. It’s also rather sweet and while being very drinkable the taste lasts a long time in your mouth. Light to medium body but packed with flavour. A favourite of mine.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,5l bottle. Clear dark copper/brown colour with slowly shrinking big foamy off-white head. Aroma: Smokey ham with hiding caramel notes. Taste: Very intense smokey start, maybe the smokiest from Bamberg and has the most bitter mouthfeel. Medium body with medium carbonation. Medium lasting bitter (and smokey) finish. A very good smoked beer and really has the strongest smokey caracter but not as smooth as the urbock.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, clear, small beige head. Smells smoked bacon, wood, a bit of alcohol. Medium to light body, smoky notes (not as strong as in the aroma), light bitterness at the end. Good balance and quite refreshing, but i wish it could be more dense.
