Bottle shared at home. Dark brown with thin white head. Liquid black bacon. Bbq special, damn. Caramelized burnt bacon with pine resin. Medium sweet, moderate bitter, I guess this is pretty umami, all though I’m not sure I believe in umami. Medium body, soft carbonation. Damn tasty. Crazy.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Clear reddish brown with beige head. Lots of bacon, ash, caramel, dried peach, red grapes, more smoke and ash, light mineral, toffee. Massive smoke. Just medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with slick feel. Probably a decent beer but the excessive smoke ruins most of it.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2017 Very good beer with nice ruby colour and smoke aroma. Taste is light bitter and smoked. Much better than others smoked beer available in Poland (besides other schlenkerla beer).

Bottle, thanks to SinH4 for supplying me with the great beers of this Brewery! Pours a dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of a classic smoke room people around here cooked in a century ago. Smoked bacon, a hint of caramel, dark red berries, roast, a bit earthy. Sweet, a bit tart, medium bitterness, a bit salty even. Medium body with lively, soft carbonation.
Amped up Schlenkerla Märzen. More smoke than bacon. A very good beer.

Aroma is loads of smoke... smokey bacon, campfire... flavour is rich, red berries, caramel treacle toffee malts, more smoke and wood... thick body, slightly oily. Really good, and strangely moreish.

pkomar (526) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 23, 2017
Fantastic aroma - smoked wood, caramel, bread, raisins - quite a bit of depth for 6.5 abv beer. Taste is also rich in those notes present in aroma. A bit of sweetness, medium-low herbal bitterness, just enough carbonation. Very solid beer that I could drink a lot. Very good drinkability.
