    ABV 40%
    Traditional Frankonian Beer Spirit distilled from Schlenkerla Smoke Beer and matured on Schlenkerla smoked malt for several months.

    It's is made in Germany and there are only about 50 cases made every 3 years and retail price is around $150 a bottle.

    The nose: A slight peat smell with a delicious smoky almost campfire smell.

    The taste: starts off with a sweet very light Caramel flavor followed by a smokiness that is still somehow slightly sweet. The peat mixes in with the smokiness and somehow at the very end there's a slight citrusy floral note that I can't place. Overall it's amazing and incredible. The flavors are subtle and beautiful all the same time.

    One day hopefully I can find a bottle.

    If I ever find a couple bottles I'll let you know. If not you'll have to visit Baltimore.

    Has anyone tried their beers like smoked bacon, campfire, intense smoked or rauchbier from Bamberg Germany. I'd imagine distilled this would be like liquid smoke!

    It did remind me of liquid amok sort of. The bar I went to carries some of their beers but I haven't tried any yet
