This beer is one of Red Rock's summertime favorite. A 'Rauch Beir' translates in German as 'smoked beer', drying malt over an open flame imparting a smoky character to the malt.

GABF 2013. I stopped by Red Rock to try their Zwickelbier, but this turned out to be my favorite of their offerings. Pours a golden orange appearance with a creamy brown head. Big meaty, ham smoked aroma with some caramel sweetness and Noble hops. Not overly sweet flavor packed with a touch of peat, tons of smoked bacon, and burnt wood. Fucken chill brew.

Multiple draft samples @ 2010 GABF: Bronzed yellow. Wispy collar of foam. Pleasant nose of biscuity, haylike, honey-glazed malt, soft/rounded smoke and minerals. Firm carbonation. Clean and wonderfully composed smoke dovetails with toasted hay, initially. Nice punch of pungent beech smoke gradually intensifies, though it remains well-rounded so as to not obstruct the malt delicacies. Faint ashiness enhances the clean attenuation as it latches onto the beautifully textured biscuity, toasty malt backbone. Assertive hop bitterness surges forth with notes of grass and aniseed. Light mineralic snap lends wonderful contrast to the softer malt, and compensates for the the dab of doughy yeast which comes and goes. Floral softness is apparent throughout, and plenty enough to buttress the center of the beer. The crisp, dryly malty finish is accompanied by a brisk fusion of sassy hops, woody malt, and minerals. Perhaps a wee bit stark in the malt department, but that is a minor quibble as it is clean and nicely balanced.

GABF 2010, came highly recommended from Dickinsonbeer. light caramel colored pour. Sweet malts nicely balanced with a non dominating smokiness. Enjoyable smoked beer

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2010
GABF 09. From the ratings- it seems like in 09 they really stepped it up a lot from a crappy beer. One of the top 5 of the whole fest for me this year. Pours a medium bright copper with a lasting off white head. Aroma is so fresh, bready, smokey and clean - great beechwood smokiness- similar to the Heller Trum, only scaled back a bit, but it makes up for it in fresh doughy bready malts, lightly burnt fresh toast, and light on the hops. Flavor is all malt- toast, bready, awesome clean fresh beechwood smokiness, light campfire- lots of ham and bacon- smooth clean refreshing finish. Had to go back every time I passed the booth. Kickass.
