A - Huge eggshell head, thick and soapy. Dark brown effervescent murky body, looks like a dunkelweizen. Sloppy drools of lacing.
S - Ashy smoked bacon with a sweet honey glaze. These Schlenkerla rauchbiers are just my favourite smelling beers on the planet. A joy.
T - Follows the nose yet doesnt quite match the intensity. In addition to the smoke, bacon and honey, there are light notes of banana and wheat.
M - At first quite light in the body but then it becomes quite chewy and full bodied. Moderate carbonation.
O - I absolutely love it. I should add that this bottle was 2 months past its BB date.

500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy deep reddish brown color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wood smoke, wheat, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with well balanced fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke notes; with good strength. Taste of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wheat, wood smoke, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of banana, clove, toast, brown bread, wheat, wood smoke, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke flavors; with a great smoke/yeast/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and moderately crisp/creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice smoked weizen. All around well balanced fruity/spicy yeast ester, dark/bready malt, and wood smoke flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
