COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Dark brown pour, fluffy beige head. Bread pudding aroma, sweet, caramelly, toasty. Sweet, syrupy flavor, hint of molasses. Kind of doughy, raisiny, and toasty. A rich, sweet beer that hits what I like about big bocks while hiding its per entage well.

mcdav2154 (439) - GERMANY - DEC 13, 2011
Reddish brown body. Minamal beige head. No lacing. Aroma is of brown sugar, toasty malt, and caramel. Taste is heavy sweet on the front but not cloying with a small bitter bite on the end. Alcoholic creamy mouthfeel. Not a bad beer. Very enjoyable bock!

interesting evolution that ends in some weird sugary/bubblegum note. Nice beer to look at, has a dark flavor of Dutch rye bread or something sweet. Slightly too sweet. Bottle from the De Schans store.

Bottle courtesy of - you guessed it - bierkrug. Thanks! Beautiful clear amber color, large fluffy tan head with great lacing. Aroma of toasted graham crackers covered in honey. Taste is sweet caramel. OK.

A clear light brown/amber colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of caramel with fruits and hints of spices. The taste of caramel with small hints of choco, fruits and some spices. The aftertaste is some bitter and very sweet.

Koelschtrinker (10382) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Sehr milder Antrunk. Malzig, ohne richtig süß zu sein, aber auch für die herbe Seite kann sich das Bier nicht richtig entscheiden. Im Mittelteil wird das Bier malziger, bleibt aber wässrig. Leicht herber Nachgeschmack. Sehr lascher Bock! Test vom 21.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,6,7,5,8,5 - 5,80

JanEric (990) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2011
Copper brown, small off white head, somewhat malty aroma with caramel, and dates. Slightly bitterness comes up when drinking, somewhat sweetish by caramel, rather a short finish in which alcohol shows up at the end.
