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".

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Bottle from Wasana’s, Idar-Oberstein, Germany!
Pours dark amber colored with small creamy head. Smells malty with dark fruits. Starts malty-sweer with some brown sugar and plum. The middle part is very malty-fruity with some sweet brown sugar. Goes into a sugary finish with lots of dark fruits (especially plum)! Very great dark bock!!!

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.

Delicious Bock with a nice malty character. Has a chocolatey and chewy taste to it, and a ruby red colour. I also like the beige head.
