Details

Beech wood is usually used to smoke the malt used in Shlenkerla's Rauchbiers, but Aecht Schlenkerla Eiche is oak smoked instead. At 8% ABV, this complex aged dopplebock combines a smooth smoky character with spicy hops, a touch of warming alcohol sweetness and a slight bitterness throughout. A must try for lovers of smoked beer.

A big bottle of smokiness in a glass. Think pleasing fireside not smoked cheese and you're there

Smokey bacon is the dominant impression here, coming through in the nose and in the taste. I like it, but I expect many won\'t.
A moderately thinnish mouthfeel meant it slipped down rather nicely, despite the high ABV.
Dominant smokey bacon finish here.

Very smokey, thinner than their regular winter brews, dominant smokey bacon finish.
