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.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2012

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2012
On tap. Pours an almost opaque deep brown with a smallish off-white head. Roasty nose with some pumpernickel. Solid body, again pumpernickel and roast, but also a little dried dark fruits and even less burned caramel. Ends on a roasty bitter finish, and clearly it’s a Bock on the less sweet side. 170212

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Bottled@Monks Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Very dark reddish brown colour, close to black. Mediumsized thick creamy beigeish brown head, that leaves some slight lace. Aroma is sweet ripe fruits, raisins, some sweet malts, and sap along with some toffeeish ntoes. Flavour is rather similar with burnt sugary and fruit juice concentrate like sweetness. A bit too sweet for me.

fiulijn (15330) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2012
Swingtop bottle from Central City Liquor Store, Surrey; year 2011
Very nice bottle with a metallic medal, although this makes it expensive. It pours a beautiful dark amber color with red shades, and a creamy persistent head; it’s already tempting.
The aroma is mild, with a delicate nuttyness that is original and impressive, just mildly roasted cashews and pecans.
Good body strength; the mouthfeel is lean, and smooth; excellent caramel flavor, with very good roasted nuts compounding; the final tends to show a drier feeling, and also a biscuity quid; the bitterness level is correct.
Perfect balance, and elegance. Wonderful Bock.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. Vintage 2010. A rather flat one, but with some light beige bubbles round the rim. It’s almost clear, dark amber in color. The aroma has dried fruits, caramel malts and a little touch of meatyness. All feeling quite aged. The flavor feels fresher, although with the same meatyness, caramel and dried fruits. Not much hoppyness going on. Full-bodied, smooth and with a little hint of warmth. A quite nice one, but I bet it would be better fresher. 120218
