Bonster (182) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Bottle from the local. Dark brown pour with thick off white head. Nice smoke pit malt aroma. Thin to medium body. Clean and crisp. Smoke is excellent. Reminds me of a pig roast, mmmmm

gripweed57 (1412) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Translucent cola brown color. Moderate rocky beige head. Big smoky malt aroma fills the room. Remiscent of cooking bacon. First sip is sweet roasted malt with smoky notes. Oaky with a touch of bitter hops. Some woody and maple syrup notes as well. The smokiness is there from the first sniff to the last sip. Quite impressive. A world class brew and the one of the best examples of the style.

Amber brown color, with tan head. Smoked oak aroma. Amber dark brown color, clear. Bacon, oak, ham, and maple syrup flavor. Smoke is dominant but does not overpower base. Medium to thick palate, chewy biscuit and jerky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

evannell (801) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Jedyne porównanie, jakie mam w zanadrzu, to "Dymy Marcowe". Chociaż Schlenkerla wydaje się być trochę mniej kwaśna i o bardziej czystym profilu. Dymy chyba mają bardziej natargane.

Świetne piwo. Nie wiem, czy w tym stylu można coś lepiej.

imperial_suchy (51) - Rybnik, POLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Piwo barwy brązowej, klarowne, gęsta piana. Pachnie jak wędzona szynka. Smak słodowy, nuty wędzone. Piwo słodkie i dosyć pijalne chociaż nienajlżejsze, gładkie, kremowe. Można powiedzieć, że wręcz "puszyste" ;).

Dark brown with a little tanned foam, smoked and roasty aroma, low carbonization, light sour, no bitterness. Interesting taste!

I like everything about this beer. Smoking ham-dominated aroma coming from pitch black beer with light foaming. The taste is purely wheaty with a light touch of bitterness and spiciness. The ABV is well hidden. But its just TOO SWEET (as expected from wheat beer), which took away all my points for its taste (I am all about the taste of a beer)
