Traditional stone beer brewed with super-heated stones.

Geschaffen durch Feuer und Stein, nach einem der ältesten Brauverfahren.
Brauart/Biergattung: Untergäriges, unfiltriertes Vollbier
Diese wohl weltweit einzigartige, mystische Bierspezialität wird von uns mit Holzfeuer und glühenden Urgesteinen gebraut. Durch den Einsatz teurer Spezialmalze bekommt es seine magisch anmutende Farbe. Naturtrüb, mit frischer Bierhefe und kräftigen Schaum. Malzaromatisch, dezent fruchtig-süßlich sein Aromaprofil. Sein Trunk: Vollmundig, malzig-rund, gepaart mit einer zartbitteren Hopfennote. Aufgemerkt!
Diese sehr süffige Bierspezialität ist kräftig und verführerisch. Möge es nutzen.

Traditional hazy style, deep amber with flowery scents and slight bitter finish. Gold Tor drink in coold weather. Naturtrübes Bier nach traditionellem Brauverfahren. Kraftvolle Aromen in guter Abstimmung zum dezent bitteren Nachtrunk.

0,5 bottle. Amber color. Caramel aroma and mainly caramel flavor. Balanced with hop ,not overwhelmingly sweet. Curious to try another Steinbiers.

Alengrin (3105) - BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2015
One of the last German beers which still make us of the ancient - and dangerous - technique of putting hot rocks in the kettle to make the wort boil. Moussy, regular, stable, light beige head, colour a slightly hazy amberish orange blonde with strong fizz fiercely rising up from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of sweet caramel, dry cookies, old cake, freshly toasted bread, iron but not too disturbing, damp cellar (probably due to storage conditions), herbal hops (tea). Sweetish onset, ’malt fruitiness’, light sourish accent, soft and rounded mouthfeel still with carbonation tingling on the sides of the tongue), smooth and slick malt backbone but a bit metallic as well, caramelly and indeed a bit ’toasted’ like roasted pine nuts, subtle, evolving into a primarily malty finish with persisting toasted bitterishness and balancing, earthy, herbal hop bitterishness; the drying carbonation lingers as well. Straightforward, like most German lagers, but well balanced and pleasantly going down. Interesting but clearly a lager so the classification under ’traditional ale’ here should not be taken litterally...

SANTACERVEZA (6) - COLOMBIA - MAY 9, 2015 does not count
Beautiful Smoke bier. The Steinbier is an Old Austrian Recepie that Leikeim has recover and they produce is a very tradicional old way. I saw the Factory and the process how they produce.... was a factastic experience

fiammanghilla (797) - Genova, ITALY - MAY 4, 2015
Bottiglia 50cl comprata al supermercato e bevuta a casa. Ambrata con schiuma fine e persistente. Piacevole sorpresa. Piuttosto mielosa, esce dell’affumicato e chiude amara ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

erickok (4239) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 26, 2015
Very cloudy orange body and unstable head. Banana, cereal, light spice, not quite as farmy as I hoped. Nice taste, good body. Had quite high hoped for this one actually, but not quite there. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Golden colour with firm white head. Aroma of hebs, fruits. Flavour is nothing special, quickly forgettable.

EAGLE82 (198) - Röslau, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2015
A very unusual drinking experience, not in a bad way. Dark golden color, hoppy sweet taste. Worth trying.

Zlotta (280) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2015
0,5 l bottle from local getränkemarkt, best before 24/6/2015. Clear, golden amber with medium large, foamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish, not that intense aroma of caramel, hay, bread and cereals. Sweetish taste of caramel with hints of cereals, bread and hay. Short, medium bitter finish. Thin to medium body, almost watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Tasty and quaffable but not very interesting. Still nice to see a brewery keeping up that traditional style!

CanCrusher (732) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle 0,50L. Gift from my friend Gregor. Cloudy orange colourwith small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of bread, biscuits, vanilla and caramel. Taste starts moderate bitter, somehow fruity, but very hoppy. Finish is moderate bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture and lively carbonation. Interesting beer, kinda different...

peponi (723) - Krakow, POLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Aroma: caramel, bready, butterscotch. Appearance: hazy amber color, nice beige head. Taste: medium bitterness (herbs), heather notes, dark malts, slightly smoked, roasted. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, roasted and bitter finish. Overall: Strange beer, amber beer, which is really roasted.
