    Great style of beer. Awesome with pizza. Schlenkerla is probably the best commercial example available in the US. Rogue also makes a very nice one, Chipotle Ale.

    Hmmm had one a few years back, German, cannot recall the brand. Interesting- albeit a bit dry as I think I remember.

    Here's a recipe I just noticed over on Beer Advocate. (Thanks to poster Cfahooligan!) I figured it would be appropriate here since it not only uses the aforementioned smoked beer but smoked bacon as well. It also sounds delicious!!

    Bamberg Onion

    Ingredients for 4 servings:
    4 big onions,
    250 g pork,
    100 g cooked smoked pork,
    4 slices smoked bacon,
    ¼ litre Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer,
    salt, pepper, mace, marjoram,
    3 eggs,
    2 bread rolls,
    chopped parsley
    2 tablespoons brown meat stock.

    Peel the onions, cut approx. 1 cm off of the root end. Scoop out the onion until the sides are approx. 1 cm thick. Put pork and smoked pork with the insides of the onion through meat grinder. Mix the results with the eggs, bread rolls, spices and the parsley. Fill the 4 onions and let them roast in a casserole with some water and without lid for about 45 minutes at 200° C. Fry the smoked bacon and put it on each onion; put the cut-off onion end on top of the bacon. When done, remove onions from casserole. Pour the drippings from the casserole into a skillet; add brown meat stock, flour, spices and the Schlenkerla Smokebeer; heat and stir until the gravy becomes thick. Bamberg Stuffed Onions are served with mashed potatoes or boiled potatoes.
