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".

BillKismet (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2012
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.

Erzengel (1907) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2013
Sehr süßer, intensiver Antrunk. Der Hauptteil wird malzig-süßlich-klebrig. Lakritze und süßer Kaffe. Interessante Aromen werden frei. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend und leicht herb, aber wie das ganze Bier sehr malzig-süß und klebrig. --> Sehr leckerer dunkler Bock, aber für meinen Geschmack ein kleines Bisschen zu klebrig! (Test vom 29.7.2008) --> 12,11,10,11,12,11 - 11,00

Bottle from a Frankfurt airport duty free shop. Pours dark copper with a creamy beige/tan head. Aroma is malty with a little spicy hop. Med body. It’s starting like a cola flavor - develops a slight hint of chocolate, and some bitter herb. It’s malty, but not sweet. Finishes towards dry and bitter for me. Tasty!

Clear dark brown, beige head. Most striking in this bock is the vegetables present on its taste. Besides that some caramel roasted malts. Nice bock.
