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.

Bamsen78 (4395) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
Bottle @ Post-Easter Procrastination, Ulfborg. Pours slightly hazy darkish amber with small off-white head. Clear, intense aroma of smoke, with notes of caramel malt and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of hops and rather intense notes of smoke permeating the entire tasting experience well into the aftertaste. Well-balanced and decent

Bottle. Pours dark copper in color with an off-white head. Smoked ham, sweet dark fruity notes and bready malts in aroma. Quite smooth mouthfeel. Smoked bacon and bit of campfire in taste. Slightly sweet bbq notes in finish. Delicious.

Intensiv rauchiger, gleichzeitig weicher Antrunk. Süffig, süßlich herb, dunkle Malzigkeit. Etwas vergoren fruchtig, insgesamt bleibt das Bier konstant. Gut! 9/10/11/11//11

Orange rötliche Farbe, fingerbreite leicht beige Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr rauchig, viel Holz, etwas Whiskey. Geschmack rauchig malzig, holzig, dann geht das ganze ins süßliche hinüber, leicht alkoholisch.

Bomber. Smells and tastes quite smoky, more pork than cigarettes. The base is sweet caramel, which is right for this sort of thing. Right level of body and carbonation. Doesn’t feel like 7.5% to me.

mile (3427) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle. Light amber, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, light caramel and some smokiness with light bacon. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light caramel and smokiness with faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light - some smokiness with faint - light bacon, light alcohol. OK smoked with nice aroma. Flavor/finish lacks smokiness (compared to aroma) - finish has too much alcohol considering the body. Cannot be comprered with those from Bamberg or Schlenkerla.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Tasted on 1/31/12 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle. Pours clear dark amber with an average beige head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is smokey with toasted cocoa nibs and a touch of caramel. The flavor is even smokier with nutty toasted cocoa nibs and some nice caramel and coffee malt. The body is full with average carbonation and a long smokey finish.

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.
