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. Clear copper color with a small white head. Intense big smoky aroma of smoked birch, charcoal,burnt bone, salt, leather and sweetness from dark sugar and hints of maltiness. Taste is dry with dark fruits maltiness, smoked wet wood & leather. Taste is a bit disappointing compared to the fantastic aroma. It has a good smoke flavor, but you expect even more after smelling it.

CarlJonas (228) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2014
Clear reddish brown, small head. Big smokey aroma, leather and dark sugar. Taste is slightly smokey but dominated by dark fruits and quite dry. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. The smoke clears when you drink it and your left with a competent bock but not much more, so bit of a let down but still pretty tasty.

joeneugs (4216) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
22 oz. bottle. It pours a very deep copper/mahogany color with a tan head. The aroma is super smoky with lots of wood smoke and beef jerky. Very much like Schlenkerla. The flavor is again, super smoky with with a nice underlying malt and brown sugar sweetness that lends a nice complement. Flavors of smoked wood and beef jerky dominate. The body is medium and the carbonation is prickly. My only complaint is that the mouthfeel isn’t quite as smooth as Schlenkerla, but otherwise this is just as good.

malrubius (2098) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle from Decicco Ardsley. Clear amber with lasting head and lace. Strong smokey cherrywood sweet grassy grainy aroma. Very grassy grainy medium caramel smoky sweetness with sweet earthy smokey soody ash mildly bitter finish that is dried by efferevescent carbo. Slightly gassy. Very smoky. Very good, but lacks the refined palate and mouthfeel of the true greats (Shlenkerla).

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
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.
