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".

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!!!"

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.

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.

500 ml bottle from Wasanas in Germany. Pours a dark brown color with a soft off white head. Aroma is over ripe fruit, wood and malt. Taste is creamy rasins, malt and burnt wood. Palate is smooth and mellow. Really nice beer.

This stuff rocked, shared with Bierkrug. Brown color, nice fruit, malt aroma. Flavor is malts, sweet and roasted, some fruits and some bitterness.
