Pours a dark amber color with off white head. Smoked malt, caramel and wood aroma. Reminds me of smoked meats. Smoked malt, caramel and wood flavors with a thin body. Smokey malt finish.

Prakticky tady přidávám tento komentář, jen aby tady něco bylo, protože zpětně dopisuji 900 piv z mého seznamu a asi bych se musel u toho zbláznit.

0.5l bottle. Malty aroma, caramel notes, notes of smoked wood and bacon. Brown color, beige head. Malty taste, caramel, smoked notes, medium bitter. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation and malty smoked finish. Good and easy to drink.

Aus der Flasche 2015-12 getrunken. "Och nööö!" Aber im Vergleich zum Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Urbock war dies immerhin trinkbar. Bier mit Rauch oder Torf oder ein BA im getorften Whiskyfaß sind alles nicht mein Stil. Bleibt weg - bitte!

W aromacie i smaku wędzarnia - i to nie w postaci wyrobów ale paleniska, drewna, dymu. Chmielowe głównie w aromacie, w smaku dość słodkie ale dobrze zbalansowane wędzonką. Do przyjemnego, długiego picia.

Bu en cours de zythologie . Bouteille de 50 cl. Couleur brune avec de beau reflet acajou et de belle brillance. Peu de mousse voir inexistante. Au nez : le fumé domine mais on arrive à déterminer un peu de malts caramel et de fruit. En bouche : c'est une lager , mais la sensation est génial. Beaucoup de corps je trouve sensation de fumé Intense et agréables. Un peu salé . Légèrement fruité et malts caramel. J'aime beaucoup

Smells like bark and bacon. The flavors are very cigarette forward and brisket char that fade into smoked bacon. The marten comes through at the very end in the form of the body that has a nice sweetness at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If you want to drink a smokebeer than Schenkerla is the top. Dark brown color , impotant smokey taste but this Maerzen version has also a freshness feeling given by a light sourness. So a complex beer with high drinkability

Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker. Shared with Anke!
Classic of the (in)famous Bamberg brewery which I got to know during a 4-month Erasmus stay in that cosy, small city. Apparently, one has to drink it six times before being able to appreciate it... Pours hazy dark brown with a big, frothy, collapsing, tan head. Intense aroma of smoked herring, smoked ham, sausage, (smoked) malt, beef stock, some (pea)nuts, wood, sweet tobacco and ash. It tastes medium malty sweet with umami/meaty notes and light woody/hoppy bitter. The finish is overall smoky with some hoppiness and a faint note of salt. Medium body, slick/creamy texture, soft carbonation. I can appreciate this right away, even though I'm looking forward to having this fresh from tap at the brewpub. So unique, nothing like it.

MetalMurphy (805) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 24, 2018
tap @ wunder sörművek (budapest) brown colour, normal body, average carbonated, smells smoke, rich malty, biscuit, bit sweety, silky texture
