Color is copper red, slightly brownish, it looks crystal clear to me. Aroma is smoked bacon and mountain smoked cheese. Taste is sweet at first sight probably from caramel malts, in the beginig maybe some fruitiness. After that comes strong smoked ham flavour. Aftertaste is mix of both sweet and smoky. It’s quite thick for its extract. In general i don’t like smoked beers but Schlenkerla products are exceptions.

BB 03/2017. Poured a translucent (just) dark brown with a 5mm light tan dense foam head that retained extremely well and laced very well. Carbonation high, lively and coarse. Aroma very strongly of open-fire smoked bacon and smoked ham; very similar smoked characters to the Märzen Rauchbier. Taste initially of sweet dark malt followed quickly by lots of very strong open-fire like smoked ham and bacon; low bitterness. Medium to heavy body. Smooth with a nice smokey finish.

kolor ciemny, piana ładna, dorbna, utrzymująca się. Aromat drewna, chleb ciemny, bekon, szynka, wedzonka, kielbasa. W smaku słodko-palono. Wyscyenie niskie, chmielowosc niska. Bardzo dobre piwo

Bottle. And Draft. Mahogany coloured smoked beer. Off-white head. Mega smokey aroma; smoked ham, campfire. Sweet Malty; smoked malts, roasty, toffee/caramel, woody. Hoppy; nice balancing hop bitterness. Good smoke/malt/hop balance dominated by the smoke. Smooth and complex. Sweet smokey roast malts and caramel throughout. Smokey and dry finish. Terrific. Wonderful Smoked Beer! (2008)

Oh Mann. Wahnsinn!!! Wie wundervoll sich im richtigen Winkel zum Licht ein funkelndes Rot im ansonsten tiefschwarzen Sud offenbart. Wow. Die Düfte von Torf, Szechuanpfeffer und Sojasoße sind allgegenwärtig und wahrlich OVER THE TOP!! Ganzer heißer Smoker Stoff 😀. Später fällt der wollüstig angesweetete Hopfenwürzlakritztrunk gnadenlos lasziv fordernd über deine Knospen im Mundraum her. Halleluja, that is a Masterclass Brew!!! Eine Legende lebt. Ich war vorher völlig unbefangen. Oftmals getrunken, immer ganz gut gefunden und jetzt bin ich fast sprachlos. Was für ein Bier. Komplex, SÜFFIG, Hardliner & Pussykompatibel. Respekt!!! 0,5 er Gebinde from the mighty Rattyman aus Franconia. 👽. Das Mouthfeel ist schlank und dennoch oily, die Hoppyness ist exorbitant und unerbittlich. In diesen Kontext sicherlich einmalig. Weltklasse !!

@ Akkurat 17-2-18: Stora rökiga toner samt skinka och lite aska. Lång maltig eftersmak. Riktigt gott

50 cl bottle. Big beer, dark colour, deep red against the light, thick beige head. Smoked ham (palvikinkku) aromas all the way and some oak, very soft aromas. Taste is a bit more malty, the smokiness more in your face, perhaps because of the carbonation (medium). Mouthfeel is even a little sticky. Medium+ body. Taste could deliver on the aromas better, but still a classic.

Oh man ich liebe die Schlenkerla Rauchbiere. Das Urbock ist Vollmundiger und weniger bitter als das Märzen. Der Rauch ist feiner und es ist insgesamt süßer. Ich mag beide sehr, aber das Urbock finde ich leicht besser, mal sehen wie die Eiche ist ;)
