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.

Bouteille 66cl, de Tderoeck. Cuivrée, col moyen blanc-cassé. Arôme est assez léger avec un agréable bouquet fumé sur un rétro fruité léger. Palais reste aussi centré sur le malté, pointe de fumé sans être surfaite, petite amertume de houblons nobles. Crystal malt et fumé avec un côté léger en épice sur la fin, et un rétro de fruité noir.

Pours a cloudy medium amber. Normal head volume, above average retention and lacing. Excellent nose of wood smoke with distinct cherry like sweet notes. It lacks the meatiness of the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbiers and is lower in intensity. Light medium body with a somewhat oily texture. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the finish. The flavor profile is outstanding and follows the nose in regard to Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbiers (no meat, less complex and less intense). It begins with a burst of smoke over a sweet cherry note. The middle is a subtle bitterness with an ashy quality over caramel sweetness. The finish is a slow fade of smoky sweetness with a slight alcohol note. A very good offering, especially for style introduction purposes, but not in the same league as Aecht Schlenkerla.

Glassy brick red color. Decent head, slight but attractive lace. Aroma is beef jerky. Pure and simple. Teryaki flavor? I can smell literally nothing else. The flavor is more beef jerky and smoked meats. There is a sugary sweetness on the back end Feels slick and oily. Listen, you aren’t going to have more than a thimbleful of this stuff at a time, admit it. It’s very good, but it’s a niche beer.

Bottled. 10cl sample. Thanks Menno for the share. The aroma has smoked meat, toffee, slight grass. Clear, amber coloured beer with an off-white, medium head. The taste is light bitter, sweet, has toffee, some caramel and smoke mainly. Body is a little watery. Easy drinking smoked beer.

Bottle shared by Menno, thanks! Quite some clean wood in the aroma, smokey, but quite different than the Bamberg smoked beers. Really well balanced and clean.

Bottle. Geologyguy nails it in his review, "Smoked smell that is great! A good smoked beer, not quite as good as my favorite one...needs to be heavier and less watery, touch too much hops too".

Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a clear amber beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma is very smokey, bbq, roasted malts. Flavor is has a massive woody presence over everything else. The smoke is also massive in this one. Very powerful, yet a very light and short aftertaste. Still a very nice one.
