Portland, Oregon - Belmont Station
Beerlover is exactly right.. You will either love or hate this beer. I guess I have now resigned myself to the fact that I don't like smoked beer (or food). Underlying all of the smoke is a pretty good tasting doppelbock, but the smoke just kills me.
They weren't kidding about the multi-layered smoky note in this beer! Smoky smell followed by liquid smoke with beer in there somewhere.There is nothing else like an Aecht Schlenkerla beer and this is their smoky King.You will either love or hate this beer.If you've tried one of their other beers and hated it,you will hate this one,too.I love it! It's reminds me of sitting by the campfire on a warm Summer evening drinking beer and inhaling smoke (cough, cough).
