COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stein-Bier: Die Kelten erhitzten die Bierwürze in den Holzbottichen mit heissen Steinen, an denen der Malzzucker karamellisierte. Während der Reifung entstanden so rauchige Karamellaromen. Das Bock-Bier ist ein alkoholintensives Bier mit einer Vielfalt an komplexen Aromen. Aus der Verschmelzung dieser beiden Bierspezialitäten entsteht das Monsteiner SteinBock-Bier. Das spezielle Herstellungsverfahren mit Bergquellwasser, mit Bündner Bio-Gerste von GranAlpin und mit Schweizer Aromahopfen verleiht diesem Bier die dunkle Farbe und den typischen Geschmack. Das SteinBock-Bier ist ein naturtrübes, untergäriges Gerstenbier mit 6.5 %vol. Empfohlene Trinktemperatur 15° C.

pivnizub (8750) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2009
Bottle (Danke nach Kreuzlingen!): Hazy, amber coloured, lots of floaties visible, medium-sized - sloly collapsing - off-white fluffy head; sweetish-caramelly nose with a light, but distinctive hoppy background;; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; sweet-malty finish with a subtle fruitiness and a light bitter aftertaste. A tasty brew, no doubt.........

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2009
(33cl bottle, with thanks to Quack-Duck) Hazy, amber to chestnut brown colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Sweet caramel-malty nose with a touch of molasses and subtle beet-fruity notes. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Malt-accented taste with notes of caramel, molasses and a touch of sugar beet; sweet malty finish with caramel and a tinge of hoppy bitterness. Likeable Steinbier-Bock (20.VII.09).

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Sampled in Zurich. A really refreshing brew, drinks incredibly smooth. Pours decently dark amber with mild head. Full of good caramel flavors but not much else. Worth a try.

Hazy dark amber color. Very light aroma; caramel flavor, a bit stale, with no qualities, medium-low bitterness, some alcohol. Boring.

TBone (12477) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2009
Bottled (BB12/2009) Hazy orange color, small off-white head. Candy sugar, orange peels and cardboard in the nose. Medium-bodied, even a bit on thin side. Sweet jelly at first then hoppy bite and banana with some candy sugar. Very strange bock. Somehow Dutch like, also lemonady feeling here.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2009 500ml bottle (Poirotti Kallio, Helsinki)
Rich brown. Lagery aroma, but certainly big and malty, a touch marmitey too. Pleasant esters, but quite simple. OK bock, nothing special.

bottle from Coop Kreuzlingen. Dark amber-brown colour, mid-sized head. Some floaties visible. Full-bodied, intensively malty with hints of caramel and shy hints of cocoa powder and chocolate. Well-balanced Dunkler Bock!
