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".

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2008
(bottle) Clear, dark brown colour with an eggshell-coloured foamy head of medium size. Sweet and slightly toasted malt aroma with hints of metallic hops. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Robust malty base, slightly toasted with light notes of caramel and molasses; sweet malty finish without any balancing bitterness, although the alcohol is fairly well integrated. Mediocre Bock (16.05.07).

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) 7,5% ABV in my version. A snow-bock, well, it had to come sooner or later. But it’s certainly far from watery. Dark amber colour. Lovely caramel flavours with a wee metallic edge. In spite of being overly potent with some sweetness this brew is surprisingly light and in no way cloying. Rather wellmade (Doppel)bock. 250802

bierkoning (10386) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2005
Light malty aroma with mango and apricot. Full bodied. Malty sweet flavor with loads of tropical fruit (peach, pineapple, apricot and mango) and a touch of roasted malt to match the fruit a bit. Quite nice.

JorisPPattyn (7976) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2004
Beautiful dark, clear, copper-amber; little, coloured head, nearly flat. Bready nose, with a lot of earthy overtones, bit of walnut. Bready taste, quite sweet but not cloying. Touch of acidity. Flavour of chestnut purée (mash). Well-bodied, chewy. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Nice, but nowhere surprising typical German. "Good workmanlike performance".
