In der Lahnsteiner-Brauerei wird das ganze Jahr über Bockbier, auch Starkbier genannt, gebraut. Der Schneebock ist als dunkle Variante unseres Bockbieres ganzjährig erhältlich. Ursprünglich wurden Bockbiere gebraut, indem man ein Vollbier mit "normalem" Alkoholgehalt im Lagertank abkühlte, bis Wasser gefriert. Es bildete sich eine Eisschicht am Rand des Lagertanks. Da Alkohol einen niedrigeren Gefrierpunkt als Wasser hat, friert er nicht zusammen mit dem Wasser aus, und der Alkoholgehalt des Bieres steigt an. Durch diese Herstellungsweise wurde das fertige Bier als "Eisbock" bezeichnet. In der Lahnsteiner-Brauerei wird das Bockbier von Anfang an stärker eingebraut und später nicht mehr ausgefroren. Die Erinnerung an den "Eisbock" und der Ausschank im Winter führte zum heutigen Namen "Schneebock".

Creamy bubbly off white head over a dark copper, clean body. Aroma of cinnamon, cookies, rustic bready malts, brown sugar, pepper and vanilla. Really nice. Taste can’t quite keep up the pace, but still a nice spicy body. Quite dry, light bitter and rough sugars in the back. Bit too much carbonation maybe, because it’s not as smooth and rich as I hoped. Great unique cookie aroma, tast eis just an okay bock. (50cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Gorgeous melanoidin underpinning to this rich amber brew with a caramel froth top. Winter spice gum drop nose titillates the nostrils. Aged melanoidin and brown licorice flavor with a hint of red licorice as well. Mildly grainy and spicy with some birch sap and wintergreen mixed. Mellowed and wonderfully complex. Smoothly satisfying.

Thanks to bierkrug fro the recommendation. This tasty dunkelbock boured a nice deep brown with beige one finger head. Nice and roasty flavor, snooth on the palate with just a touch of bitterness. I’m likin’ it!

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig-gut. Geschmacklich ist es süß, hopfig und Alkoholisch. Fazit: Zwar nicht ganz so gut wie erhofft aber doch gut trinkbar!! Test vom 28.2.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,8,9,13,9 - 9,20

Benzai (9436) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2012
50cl bottle @ home shared with Joes. Clear dark copper color, medium sized off-white head that leaves good lacing. Smell malts, sweetness, yeast, manure. Taste malts, grains, chalk, sweetness, plus something weird. Don’t like it.

Thanks to Bottleshop. Please standby for a real rating. I’m actually enjoying the company of other beer enthusiasts instead of being a non-social "I must rate this right now!!!"
