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.

Poured out of a bottle into a tulip glass. Lots of bubbles, almost transparent, rust-red color. No head. Smell: Smoky, smoke smoke. Smells like right after I get the BBQ going but before I throw any meat on the grill. I also get a green olive scent at the beginning. Taste: Smoke. Burnt wood. Sweet malt at the end. No bitterness at all. I think the smoke mellows out the intense malt sweetness that usually accompanies a bock. Very crisp, it is a lager after all. A good beer. There are not too many smoked beers made, so for that reason alone I tried it. Well worth it, though it was not my favorite smoked beer.

I hadn't had a rauch in awhile and then I saw Caldera Kettle Serie's Ür Bock Rauch for around a thousand yen for 650ml and figured I had to pick it up. Pouring a beautiful reddish Amber brown with a thick light beige head that lingers. The aroma is smokey honey glazed ham with some rich stone fruit notes. Full bodied with a raspy carbonation and a semi-sharp finish. The taste is smokey, oak, ham, honey, malt richness. I think Fujizakura tops this but it's a solid example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jaghana (5439) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 16, 2016
Bottle 66cl, an amber red beer with huge head. Nose is on toasted grain and smoked notes. Aroma is intense on smoked malt notes, dry grain, toasted caramel, even the smoke itself, the rest is unfortunately a bit low, some metallic and astringency notes, leather. Finish is again strong on on smoked notes, that would be grate with more body.

jake65 (3368) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle. Deep brown color with a thin layer of creamy beige head. Nose is intense smoke, smoked cheese comes to mind. Just a little bit of sweetness too, same in the taste. The sweet bock does well to compliment the smoke. For such a heavy smoke presence it really is drinkable. That said, a 7oz pour was enough.

Brilliant dark amber color with beige head. Aroma is smoked ham all the way, along with some sweet toasted malts. Taste is malty sweet with the same smoked ham and sausage. Body is medium and quite smooth. Very nice rauchbier, reminds me of the traditional german variants.
