Clear brown color with beige head. Aroma has intense smoked notes, sweet malt and some bacon. Taste is really balanced. Sweet malt and earthy bitterness with some toasted smoky notes. Quite hearty but still easy to drink.

A true smoky beer experience as billed. Bacon,sausage and meaty favors come to mind. A mild slight caramel as well. The amber -black hue imparts a final touch of campfire goodness. I really enjoy this style and want to revisit the offerings from Schlenkerla.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a dark brown colour, verging on black. Small white head.

Smells nicely smokey and dark. Reminds me of smoked Bavarian cheese.

Tastes quite dark, nutty, and malty, with that smoke constantly in the background.

Overall I really like this beer, the smoked flavours really make it great.
