COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the days grow shorter and colder in Bavaria, shoppers exhausted from a day at the open air market look forward to stopping by their local for a nourishing glass of the seasonal specialty: Weihnachtsbier. Snowstorm 2008 was designed with the cold days of winter in mind. Reddish brown in color with a complex maltiness yielding hints of spicy rye, sourdough, and chocolate. Brewed with nine different malts, including copious amounts of Munich and a touch of Rye.

Pours an amber brown into glass with a small head. Aroma is malt with bread and grain (lager-like). Flavor isn’t too bad, there is some sweetness in there but mostly bread and grain with some caramel. I thought this brew could be drain pour from the aroma but it’s actually drinkable. Lots of malt flavor in this brew and goes down smooth and refreshing.

Bottle from trade. Pours dark amber, smells bread-like, with a bit of pepper and rye. Nice flavor, the rye comes out a plays well with the malt and a bit of balancing hops. For a bock, it’s quite drinkable, even though it’s a bit on the thick tasting side. Cool beer, I’d drink it again.

2008 Weihnachtsbier Color is a very light ruby/brown. Pours a slightly tan head that doesn’t last to long. Not very much lacing observed. The aroma is of solid malts. You can definately tell that it is a rye beer from the smell. There is also a hint of dark chocolate and licorice lingering around. The taste is mainly malts. Carmel is present as well as some spices. Dark chocolate is also present. Mouthfeel is very creamy. The beer is cold, but it’s as if it warms your mouth, very interesting. Overall, this was an interesting beer and one I am glad I got to try. I haven’t tasted anything like this and I would recommend it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-04-2008 03:16:31

Bottle. Pours amber-brown with a thin white head. Smells mostly of caramel with hints of spice and malt. Lacing dissipates quickly while drinking. Taste initially of caramel but quickly becomes an explosion of various malts. Very decent aftertaste (not too bitter). Enjoyable beer...and warming!
