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.

Darker copper color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Big smoke aroma, mmmmm I love this shit. Caramel and light alcohol also present, lightly fruity. Medium bodied, fairly dry, smokey. Not as good as the Aecht Schlenkerlas but still delicious.

Dark brown color. Huge smokey, cheese and meat in the nose. Full bodied and huge smokiness. Not too sweet. Well balanced, tons of smoked cheese. A touch sour. Huge lingering smokey finish. I love this beer.

On tap at the brewery. Starts fizzy. Initial smoke flavor gives way to malty sweetness (just short of syrupiness), chewiness. Pretty tame smoke. A mild American version of the style.

Translucent amber brown with a sudsy tan head. Syrupy body with medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: meaty damp smoke, dry grassy grain, sweet caramel. Reminds me of wood-oven pizza.

Taste: sharp cherrywood and caramel malt tang, stoney minerality, bready munich-type malt, and lots of wood smoke.

The cherrywood smoked malt is very strong, and has a sharpness to it that traditional clean-burning beechwood does not have. I think i would prefer to just have the beechwood smoke.

9 apr 2013, bottle from 2012. Light brown. Nose is smoked hot dogs. Thin body and fizzy. Tasted of smoked hot dogs, alcohol, rich bread, candy sugar. Pretty decent. Sweeter than most rauch beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a thick off-white head. Nose is extremely smoky. Taste is also heavily smoky; overwhelmingly so. Interesting...

Draught. Red brown with white head. Smokey light aroma, pleasant. Flavour is smoked malt, did not seem that ’intense. but the smoke is there. Smoke finish that lasts a long time. They did not stint the wood
