Rauch means “smoke” in the German language and this is very apparent on the nose of this beer. This bock is copper in color, has nice malty notes although it is dominated by a smoky flavor. This beer is medium bodied and well-attenuated.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. No sign of the booze, this was a big smokey beer. Very creamy, very tasty. Lots of lace.

Dogbrick (11610) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a dark copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pungent smoke and malt. Medium body with a smoked malt character and notes of dark fruit and hops. The finish is charred malt and smoked meats. A little too far on the smoky side for my taste but decent overall.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle shared by ClarkVV. pours a muddled cloudy dull brown with no head. Aroma is oxidized to hell- soy saltiness with almost a meat-like character comign formt eh soy and smoke- smoke is a dull wet smoldering campfire, and has a slight sherry mix in there as well. Raisins apples and other fruits int he flavor- some dull smoke again wet paper and sherry oxidation, salty and brine-like with a slight acetic acid kick in the end- sharp fusels, esters and a prickly smoke kick. Blech.

hopdog (11622) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2009
On tap at the Kuhnhenn Brew Pub...should this be un-retired now? Poured a medium and clear brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas some smoked meats, peat, and chocolate. Tastes of the same smoked meats, chocolate, and nutty. Smoke was there but not overpowering and on the lighter side.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle at Clark’s house in Boston. Poured murky brown in color with very little to no head. Aroma of smoke, meat and dark fruits. Tastes of smoke, meat, dark fruits, figs, and nuts. Certainly past it’s prime, but very glad to try this.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2006
Bottle, with ClarkVV and Sully. Amber/brown colour. Lightly smoky character in the nose and palate, some bacony sort of stuff happening. Slightly bready and a little bit nutty, with suggestiones of dark fruit, but this wasn’t well noticed. Mouthfeel is ligtly acidic. Another interesting one from these guys.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy amber coloured. Loades of rasins and other dark fruits. A bit smokey and feels kinda creamy. Hints of bread and yeast.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Tap: transparent dark amber, almost no head, just scant film. Strong sweet malt aroma fades to faint smokiness. Flavor much the same, very sweet caramel malt, almost doppel like, with minimal smoke towards the finish. Very chewy mouthfeel, yeasty and breadlike. Fine brew, would suspect for lovers of smoke this might be a little subdued for your taste.

On tap at Kuhnhenn’s. Golden amber color with a yellow cream foam head. The aroma was of honey roasted meat. Mellow smokiness with a brown sugar sweetness. Meaty smoke without being greasy. Nice smoked beer
