look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
16.9 oz bottle on numerous occasions
A - Dark deep amber in color with minimal, subtle tan head.
S - This beer smells amazing. If you enjoy the smell of smoke and/or smoked things you will find this aroma exciting.
T - The smokiness is most prominant, with some swet maltiness underlying.
M - This beer is medium bodied beer. Moderately carbonated, it's pretty smooth on the palate.
D - This one isn't for thirst quenching. It can be enjoyed very well with a nice meal and gives a satisfying experience in terms of beer and the lovable food flavors it posesses.
Notes - Give smoked beer a shot at least once. It's very unique and if you are looking for something different this is a great place to look. This beer has evoked words such as meat, wood, jerky etc. Aecht Schlenkerla Marzen is an earthy and hearty beer and probably the best of the Rauchbiers. This one is worth it.

Aecht Schlenkerla (although, I swear that k looks like an f!) Rauchbier. 5.1% ABV.
A: About a finger and a half of head. Deep red/dark plum in color. Some slight lacing; most slides off.
S: Oh, wow! I can smell the smokiness right away! It's akin to that of the smoked Gouda (Holland) I got from my work. Meaty/bacon. Black pepper.
T/MF: Fairly smooth on the palate. Has an off peppered bologna/sausage flavor, with a light rye taste on the back. Again, reminiscent of the skin on smoked Gouda.
This is quite weird, to me. The aroma is quite nice, but the taste is not something I would want in a beer. Very likely needs a food pairing. Maybe some heavy German breads...
Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
