Bottle 0.5l from P&M Bonn. Pours mahagony with off white head. Taste is smoked ham, roasted malt, burnt wood. Intense. Taste is light bitter, medium sweet, smoked ham, roasted malt, wood. Long lasting smokey aftertaste. Oily, full bodied beer. Perfect smoked beer.

Nikokaoja (179) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - APR 21, 2017
21. 4. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Mellowed down version of Fastenbier with a bit toned down aroma and flavour, but still smokin'. Almost silky mouthfeel with almost black colour. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerandhockey8 (386) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 16, 2017
From bottle to mug. Pour is a dark brown cola color with a lively head that was thick and tan. Nose is huge malt, smoke, roasted wood. Taste is medium bodied, sweet with a bit of sourness from the smoke. Finishes thick on the mouth with a smooth smoky finish. Great

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

sjogro (3553) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2017
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 Im not sure I believe in umami. Medium body, soft carbonation. Damn tasty. Crazy.

Maakun (4925) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2017
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.

matoss (48) - Warszawa Ursus, POLAND - APR 7, 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).

herrklemann (162) - AUSTRIA - MAR 29, 2017
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 Mrzen. More smoke than bacon. A very good beer.
