COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caldera’s Rauch Ur Bock is a German-style lager billowing with intense cherry and beachwood smoke flavors. We used two different smoked grains in this lager, one cured with cherrywood and the other cured with beachwood. Warning, this beer has an intense smoked flavor.

Bottle. Deep brown color with a thin layer of creamy beige head. Nose is intense smoke, smoked cheese comes to mind. Just a little bit of sweetness too, same in the taste. The sweet bock does well to compliment the smoke. For such a heavy smoke presence it really is drinkable. That said, a 7oz pour was enough.

Brilliant dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is smoked ham all the way, along with some sweet toasted malts. Taste is malty sweet with the same smoked ham and sausage. Body is medium and quite smooth. Very nice rauchbier, reminds me of the traditional german variants.

Idiosynkrasie (5555) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2015
650ml bottle. Clear, dark copper colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sweetish caramel malty and intensely but mildly smoky aroma, associations of smoked eel and smoked trout, hints of prune, bacon-wrapped prunes (Pflaumen im Speckmantel), ashes. Taste is dry, intensely smoky, peaty, hints of wet ashes, subtle hints of chocolate. Wow! One of the best smoked beers following the Schlenkerla path.

AshtonMcCobb (4413) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - smoked ham, some orange fruit. Taste - yeah, orange and smoked ham. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy and smoky texture with a dry smoky finish. Overall - a good example of the smoked style. The fruitiness balances the smoke out somewhat.
