Ungstrup (36154) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2005
An amber beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma is slightly smoked combined with notes of caramel. The flavor contains lots of caramel as well as some smoke. The mouthfeel is very smooth, but the body is thin. A very easily drinkable and enjoyable beer.

DocLock (10334) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Hazy orange pour withy medium white head. The color of non-filtered iced tea. Aroma of huge corn flakes, malt, hopcit. Tastes very corn flakey, with caramel malt, and a subtle rauchy finish. Medium palate, and very complex. Perhaps the most subtle rauchbier Ive had. Like drinking liquid Wheaties in a campfire. At any rate, this one is damned delicious!

Pours somewhat clear copper with lots of suspended particles and a medium white head. Aroma of smoke, salami and caramel. Moderately sweet. Flavor has a prominent smokey meat flavor along with notes of wood, caramel, toasted malt and a mild hop presence. Medium thin body with lively carbonation. Nice beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark amber with a small, white head. Smoky nose. Lightly sweetish, malty flavour with pronounced smoked notes, a bit flat. Rather light body and a very subdued bitterness. Quite a pleasant "Rauchbier". 300605

madsberg (11648) - Sborg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2005
Bottled: Amber coloured. Quite clear. Beige medium sized head. Buttery and light smoked aroma. Smoked, fruity and sweet caramelly flavour. Full bodied. Is light smoked in the end. Quite good smoked beer with a little vague flavours and aromas. Like this.

I travelled for two days to drink this beer on the place. And it was worth it. To sit in the gasthaus and drink it lightly warmed to the food was perfect. It has a lightly smoke aroma and a lightly smoke flavor. To see them serve it from tap and warming it for two seconds with an immersion heater beats the most. And when you have drink it up you want a new immediately

i love green olives or anything smoked and this beer delivers a fine aftertaste if you like these things. better when served at 55 degrees. its not an everyday beer but when youre in the mood for it pays off.

After thoroughly enjoying the Aecht Schlenkerla rauchbiers, I was a bit disappointed in this beer. To me, the flavor of the Spezial is not so much "smoky" as it is "weird". It also seems a bit more hoppy than the Aecht Schlenkerla brews. Maybe I just need to try this one again, or have one with a nice big steak, but based on my first experience this beer just wasnt what I was looking for.

MoritzF (9624) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2005
(bottle) Clear amber colour with a medium foamy slightly off-white head with nice lace. Malty aroma with a slight smoked note that becomes more prevalent in the flavour and a hint of berries (juniper). Bread-malty taste with well combined touch of smoked bacon and smooth smokemalty slightly bitter finish with a profound fruitiness. Great !
