Not your typical Marzen, but it's from Schlenkerla, so you knew that.

Bottle poured into a seidel.

Deep ruby-brown body with lively off-white head. Smell is more restrained then some other Schlenkerla beers but the campfire notes are still unmistakable. It's a welcoming, homey smell of hearth and brown sugar, more wood than bacon. The taste is smoke, breadcrusts, caramel, and root beer. Superbly smooth and drinkable - no astrigency whatsoever despite the smoke; a light tickle of carbonation is all that remains when it's gone.

Superb.

Quite literally the best beer I've ever tasted. Smooth, but very very full and rich taste without being overwhelming. The smokey tones really make this beer unique. For those of us that like dark and complex beers, this is an absolutely wonderful experience.

This is the best German brew ever in my humble opinion. Pours the color of brown sugar, you immediately smell the smoky aroma. Delicious. Mouthful is substantial but not too full. The taste is smoky brown sugar, like a perfectly cured ham. This is my favorite German import, cannot get enough. It is perfection.

From the time I first tried this beer I was totally impressed. So unique and so rewarding. Very complex. Taste is a great toasted malt flavor and with the mixture of the smoke flavor, you have an exceptional beer. This is great alone or with very robust meal such as beef stew. The first thing that hits you is the instant smell of smoke. God I would love to tour this brewery!!!!!
