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.

McGarnigle (587) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Flip top bottle. The oranger shade of amber. Pour leaves a great head but it doesn’t last. Kind of a sweet beer (caramel from the stones, although I don’t know if they really use stones). Bready malts and some fruit flavors which likely come from the yeast. Light on the hops, but the overall effect isn’t too rich.

Benzai (11048) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus, Joes and Thompson. Hazy reddish color, medium sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is horrible, sweaty feet, stinks. Taste malts, lightly a hint of bitter, a hint of leaves. Don’t know what this is but it’s pretty crappy imo.

SkillsFactory (222) - ITALY - JUL 13, 2015
Ambrata opalescente, schiuma bianca di media persistenza. Aroma di miele millefiori e malto d'orzo. Al palato sempre miele e malto d'orzo con un finale erbaceo leggermente amaricante; prevale comunque la componente maltata. Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata. Anche se semplice molto piacevole.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and light fruity. Flavor is quite sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish.

bartholos (113) - GERMANY - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle. Orange-amber colored and hazy with a white fine head. The aroma is dominated by caramel and honey, however not especially sweet. Some earthy, grass hops are in the back. The taste as well is sweet as one would expect, but not unpleasantly so. On the contrary the sweetness is well balanced with light bitterness. In the finish some alcoholic warmth comes up. Light bodied with medium carbonation and easy drinking.

Cthulhu (498) - MARSHALL ISLANDS - JUN 27, 2015
0,5 bottle. Amber color. Caramel aroma and mainly caramel flavor. Balanced with hop ,not overwhelmingly sweet. Curious to try another Steinbiers.

Alengrin (3547) - 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
