Smoky bacon beer times ten

As well as Eiche, I drank another Schlenkerla beer for the first time over Christmas, the 6.5% Urbock.

If you think Schlenkerla Märzen is a bit too smoky then Urbock definitely isn't the beer for you. The smokiness hits you as soon as you pop the cap of the bottle - drinking it is like sticking your head in the embers of a bonfire (probably not a good idea). I'd love to try it in Schlenkerla's Bamberg brewpub in winter when it's available straight from the barrel.
