On-tap at Churchkey in DC, poured into a pokal glass.
A- Pours a slightly hazy ruddy brown color with a finger of off-white head, nice retention and lacing.
S- The aroma is excellent, it has a really delicious smoked meat / bacon aroma, as well as smoky burnt beechwood and some light hops. For me the aroma is always the best part of rauchbiers, and this one does it very, very well.
T- Retains a lot of the great meatiness and smoke from the aroma, although slightly toned down. The malt really steps forward, with a bit of caramel and fruitiness and is accented by a light hoppiness.
M- Medium-bodied, smooth creamy feel.
O- A really nice rauchbier, the aroma is amazing, and as usual Schlenkerla has done an awesome job, although I think I slightly prefer both the regular Urbock and Marzen.

Served in .5l willibecker at Track 84. Pours a deep mahogany with a dense, quarter inch, off-white head. Nose is smokey with some caramel notes - definitely a smoked meat quality, but not as apparent as in some of the other Schlenkerla beers that I've had. Taste expresses smoked pork, some earthy char at the back and some caramel which is a bit more toasty than sweet in the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is medium-light in body with a crisp carbonation and a touch of dryness at the finish. Overall, a bit more subdued than the Marzen and drinks easier, somewhat akin to a smokey brown ale; however, I have to say that if I'm going for a Rauchbier, I'd have to go with the Marzen.

Tap: Poured a clear light maple color ale with a small foamy head with average retention. Aroma consists of smoked malt with light woody notes and floral undertones. Taste is dominated by easy drinking notes of smoked malt with light wood notes and floral undertones. Body is full with somewhat of a fat mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Great mix between complexity and drinkability.
