nearbeer (5217) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2017
650 ml. no date evident. Clear ruby-copper with a thin film of cream. Nose of molasses and bacon. Tastes of smoked meat on the front, turning to some caramel cola and a return at the finish to smoked bacon. maybe some wheat in the long finish. Medium bodied and sweet-biased, both of which makes for a worthy vessel to support the welcomed onslaught of smoke. Medium-high carbonation is a bit much for my tastes, but it mostly remains smooth and probably helps more than detracts in this brew.

Oakes (16939) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2017
Medium brown with just a thin head. Kind of dullish, ugly brown. Moderate beech smoked with some of those toffeeish malts you associate with this type of bock. The malts arent so nice on the palate, though. You still get that toffee note, but the malts are thin...no liquid bread...and the smoke suffers for it, as it doesnt come across the palate as beautifully as in the best examples of this style.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4969) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 8, 2016
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 (5875) - 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.
