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.

Interesting beer. Light for a bock. I could drink a couple more and would recommend a try since I’ve never come across a dunkl-bock before.

Bottled 330ml. -from Coop (near) Verbier, Switzerland. Amber coloured, small white to off-white head, hint of caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, dried fruits and quite sugary with moderate sweetness in the finish. Sugar ruins everything here.

I was surprised by tag color and the aromas. But as a lot of "bio" beers, this one is too "light" and doesn't have a lot of taste, but a good feeling on the palate

Viele für mich undefinierbare Aromen und Gouts, irgendwie süffig und doch anekelnd. Nein, nicht gut für mich.

Molasses sensation. Dry and bitter end. Medium carbonation D: Good. Nice German-style Swiss beer [ BA Review @ 10/25/2010 ]

loco_gallego (202) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Ambrée brune-ocre pas très foncée. Mousse beige claire disparaissant assez rapidement. Arômes de malt caramel et , fruité avec la perception de l’alcool mais restant subtile. En bouche caramel avec une amertume plutôt du toastage et de l’alcool que de l’houblonnage. Alcool devenant trop présent sur la fin. Un peu watery malgré tout avec faible-moyenne carbonation.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Rotem. Hazy orange. Oxidized aroma of cardboard, malt, caramel and a bit of honey. Sweet oxidized flavor with caramel, honey, a bit of overripe fruits and cardboard. Light to medium-bodied.
