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".

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.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2016 Clear amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty, caramel, grain. Sweet taste with medium biterness. Watery texture, soft carbonation. Quite nice.

solidfunk (7007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Certainly the best dunkler bock I’ve had in frankfurt airport, and maybe the best beer. Caramelized malt and some light roast. Pours dark amber with good head and lacing. Light sweet finish with some mash malt. Hint of copper. Goes down well with this free smoked salmon at the caviar bar in terminal b. Only the best my friends.

Baalzevuv (95) - POLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Barwa rubinowa, piwo klarowne. Piana lekko beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, obfita, trwała. Koronkuje nieźle. Zapach karmelowy i alkholowy. Sporo palonych słodów, trochę wiśni. Dosyć przyjemne. W smaku zdecydowanie alkoholowe, czuć przyjemną słodycz. Goryczka trochę zalega. W zasadzie jak każde z tego browaru smakuje jakby było warzone na pół gwizdka.

50cl bottle at home. Clearish dark brown with a medium slightly off-white soapy head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Caramel, malts, brown sugar, spices, raisin and herbs. Tasty dark bock.

adamnowek (1575) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2015
Really malty aroma that settles down a bit in the taste. Burnt caramel taste. Extremely dry texture.

Bottle from trade with McTapps, many thanks Sabine. Dark chestnut brown color with thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, light roasty, chocolate. Taste, sweet caramel malt, honey, notes of red fruits, toffee, nuts. Alcohol is dangerously hidden. Good example of style.

tricksta_p (3155) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2015
Aroma of malt, caramel, dried fruits, bread, chocolate notes. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a light to moderate bitter finish. I’m not generally a fan of Bocks, but every once in a while I stumble upon a good one.

Ach, der ist eigentlich recht unauffällig. Ein bisschen Malz und Karamell, dazu eine milde Muffigkeit und etwas Nuss nebst Getreide. Ganz ok.
