COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This smoked bock is made with the finest smoked malt from Bamberg, Germany. The malts are kilned over aged beechwood chips which gives this deep copper ale a mellow smoky flavor.

Served on draft at the Gettysburg location. Pours a clear amber color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel, berries and smoke. The taste is smoke, berries and a finish of toasted malts. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

kramer (4690) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2009
On tap, Harrisburg location. Pours a clear amber orange body with a small beige head. Nice smoky and heavy toffee malt on the nose with a bit of light roast coffee. The flavor is quite smoky and sweet, a great combo for my tastes. Nice heavy toffee malt, toasty, some burnt caramel, and a nice quaffable level of smokiness. Mouthfeel is full and fairly thick but not overly cloying or sticky. A little too fizzy on the carbonation maybe, but it’s not overly distracting. Very nice. Rauchbocks are awesome.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 21, 2009
On tap @ ABC Harrisburg. Deep amber/brown with a small tan head. Very smoky and roasty with a bit of spicy German hop and malt aromas. The smoke hits you first and then the malt sweetness comes in and a roasty bitterness. Very nice balanced smoked beer.

kassner (1322) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Had this on tap at the Brewery in Gettyburg and it compares really well to the one I had in Bamberg early this year. Plenty of smoke, a nice head, a little more carbonation that the German ones but more taste overall and a cleraner finish.

roder60 (1280) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Had 2 of these at the Gettysburg brewpub. Poured a nice clear brown amber with minimal bubbly offwhite head. Aroma is roasted malts, slight caramel sweetness and a bit of booziness. Flavor is a nice balance of sweet toffee and roasted bitterness with a good layer of smokiness that adds to but does not overpower the taste. Slight alcohol warming presence. Once of the best I’ve had there. Almost always happy with appalachian’s products.

wow this was surprising really good. has a nice strong smoked element to it, with a nice malt kick, tastes like a really well smoked lager.

Draft at Gettysburg brewpub. Slightly smoked aroma. Lovely copper body, very little head. Flavor is appropriate smoked meat, medium sweet. Very good.

draft at brewpub- a nice example- not for everyone in terms of style choice, and this one kicks you at first with some liquidy smoke and bacon bbq pit smoke, but then it becomes a part of the beer rather than the predominant flavor- not a go to style for me, but not bad.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Sampled at the ABC 11th Capital City Brew fest. Poured copper in color with a thin white head. Aroma is pretty subdued notes of lightly smoked malts, and bbq. Tastes of smoke, little bit of wood, with a nice malty base. Nicely carbonated, nice body. Very easy to drink. One of the highlights for me at the fest.
