COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Um das Thema "Granit" im Bier noch mehr zu verankern, beschlossen wir 2008 erstmals ein GRANIT BOCKBIER einzubrauen, das in alten Granitsteintrögen vergoren wird. Perfekte Vorraussetzungen für ein solches Bier, bietet das Sudhaus aus dem Jahre 1929. Während der Hauptgärung in alten Granitbottichen hat das Gestein Zeit seine Geschichte an das Bier weiter zu geben. Um auf Temperatur zu kommen starten wir diesen Prozeß mit glühenden Granitzwecken. Die Steine werden über offenem Feuer erhitzt und kühlen dann schlagartig in der Würze ab. Die Bierinhaltstoffe karamellisieren und die Hefe erhält optimale Gärbedingungen. Zusätzlich wird die Hefe ganz klassisch "aufgezogen" d. h. von Kübel zu Kübel geschüttet um diese zu belüften. Dank der offenen Gärbottiche können wir die Kräusendecke abschöpfen und somit unedle Hopfenbitterstoffe entfernen. Daraus resultiert ein dunkler Bocktyp mit schönen Karamell- und Röstaromen und einem wunderbaren Hopfenbuket. Nach ausreichender Lagerung in den alten Gewölbe-kellern, ziehen wir den Bock bereits im Juli auf die Flasche, damit bis Weihnachten eine Nachreifung stattfinden kann.

Bottle from Geiserich. Many thanks. Dark brown colour, beige foam. Sweet nose of caramel, iron, bitter hops. Rather thin and easy drinkable. Good.

anstei (642) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. A pretty average but still nice Doppelbock. Mostly on the caramel side of the spectrum. Thus pretty sweet, actually rather a bit too much.

King_Alex_II (917) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Dark ruby color without foam. The smell has a sweet malty touch which is quite round. The taste is very sweet and alcoholic with a calm and heavy malt character. The aftertaste is insanely smooth.

SinH4 (1599) - Garching, GERMANY - DEC 5, 2015
Beautiful black-brown color with tan head. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel, molasses, toffee. Taste is the same, with a silky mouthfeel, a nice sweetness and a not too strong booziness. It’s a little bit too malty, but still very good.

Peter_L (1226) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
Flaska@Eskilstuna Ölkulturs bryggpub. Kaffe, choklad och torkade frukter i doften. Lätt inledande beska. Smakar svag av bränd karamell. Mot slutet övergår den i en lättare sötma. Når inte ända fram till Ayingers version men inte så långt efter heller.

Bamsen78 (4689) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle @ Øllets Dag, Kolding. Pours slightly hazy dark amber with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and yeast, with some hoppy notes and hints of fruit. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with dusty and fruity notes and touches of hops. Estery and dusty aftertaste with subtle smoky notes. Decent.
