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.

Apples and pears with caramel aroma, subtle. little head and copper colour. The rauch part comes only when tasting. Sweet and malty. Caramel aftertaste. Balanced, but not enough rauch and a bit to sweet.

Bosskie (398) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Beautiful amber red transparent, weak head, lively carbonation. Smokey smell mixed with gentle fruitiness, caramel, apples. Almost like oil. Great balance. Taste is dark sweetness, berries, caramel on a smokey base. Bit unbalanced, the sweetness gets away from the whole making it somewhat chemical. Bitter finish.

This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. From a 22-oz bottle this poured a dark amber with beige head and big bubbles. Nose of roast port or maybe smoked pork. Medium plus body. Smooth mouth feel. Flavor is smoke, with fruit, and toffee in the finish. Some chocolate appears. The smoke is never overwhelming. This is a top flight smoke. Loved it.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This is deep opaque amber and has a nice tan head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is Slim Jims, the beef stick that comes in a wrapper. The first sip brings less meat and smoke than expected after the aroma. Those are tasted but this is malt forward. A lot of malt that makes for a smooth feel and this is sweet. Woody smoke is also noted along with the meat. That wood seems to be cherry. A bit of hop based bitter fruit is a surprise. And then chocolate milk shake pops up. And then fruit and then toffee. This was really well done. I am not a fan of smoked beers but this one went above and beyond.
