(First tapping every first Thursday of October) A smoked bock beer for Bamberg’s strong beer season (October through December). Matured for months in ancient rock-cellars underneath Bamberg and tapped freshly from the oakwood cask. Similar to, but much bigger than the classic Maerzen style.

Bottle. Pours dark brown-black with thin light beige head that dissipates quickly. Smoke aroma dominates. Heavy smoke malt upfront with seaweed and oyster notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2003
This is the third Aecht Schlenkerla I've tried and probably the mildest and most balanced of the trio. Same smoky presence as its brothers but perhaps a little less powerful. Nice brown color with thin but dense tan head. Tastes on the sweet side but a terrific balance overall.

(04.27.06) One pint, 9oz brown bottle from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. 6.5% ABV. Poured clear brown black with small off-white head. Soft carbonation. Smoke, peat, and cedar wood in the nose. Medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and mouth blasting peat and smoke. Finished dry with more smoke flavor. The beer tasted like it was steeped in burnt wood and peat. Not for the meek; Definitely an acquired taste. A treat for folks who enjoy strong tasting beers.

Nurmis (781) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium sized tanned head. Smokiness, caramel malts. Smoke aroma is sharper than in "Märzen", but a really good beer with nice mouthfeel none the less.

MikeJslc (778) - Alabama, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Light brown, clear, thin white head. Aroma: bready Munich malt, a little toffee, pronounced rauch malt smokiness. Flavor: bread-crusts, toffee, toasty notes, light chocolate, smoked malts are pronounced and blend in nicely. Medium-full body. Very well done and balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 10, 2007
Clear, deep red/brown color with medium-sized off white head. Aroma has a smooth, slightly pungent smokeyness, bit of subtle caramel. Flavor has fair amount of chewy malts, subtle smoke, touch of caramel and raisen, with a mildly bitter finish.

Wanja (771) - GERMANY - OCT 27, 2013
Nice clody dark color... Amazing aroma of smoke and bacon... Tastes like real ham, perfect... Even better than the standard smoke beer...

Bitek (770) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUL 12, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2017 Intensywna szynkowa wedzonka, slodowosc, spore wysycenie, dobrze zaznaczona goryczka.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - OCT 1, 2010
Trovata in un negozietto a Berlino; è più dolce e alcolica della Marzen con lo stesso livello di affumicamento. Molto buona

agent_persik (767) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2014
Dark reddish brown color, small beige head. Aroma with roasted malts, smoked bacon and oak. Taste is similar plus some fruity notes - dry sweet with medium bitter finish and smoky aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Nice smoked beer, quite enjoyable.
