50 cl bottle (bb 11/2014) into a tulip glass. Clear ruby brown body, medium tan head that settles down quickly, little lacing. The smell is subtle smoke and sweet malt. The taste starts off with smooth toasted malt, followed by gentle smoke with a hint of coffee, finishing dry with a grassy hop bitterness, leaving an aftertaste of coffee-like bitterness and pleasant smoke. Medium body and carbonation. Overall a pleasant beer specialty, just the right amount of smoke in the taste. Easily drinkable, would have this one again.

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.

Seriously had a "I want to freeze it in the winter and skate on it. Then thaw it in the spring time and drink it." moment.
