Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier

Very smoky but good!! This is the original Schlenkerla Smokebeer (aka Rauchbier) from Bamberg, Germany. It’s dark and smoky and I love it! You can get more info on it at SmokeBeer.com. Photo taken March 11 at Chicago’s Map Room. (Outstanding beer selection and great people!)
