The original Stieglbock is a powerful finely hopped and traditional Bockbier – the Berman term for strong beer – indicating a bottom-fermenting brew from barley malt. Brewed in August, the fermentation process lasts three months which produces a golden color beer with taste and strengths varying from year to year. This beer is perfect for beer lovers who prefer bold types of beer. 16.5 Plato

I enjoyed this beer, as it offered an array of flavors and melded well to offer a great complexity. It is fuller bodied, but stays refreshing, and is well rounded in character. The slight alcohol burn is hardly noticable, and actually offers a nice element to this well done heller bock. I wish it were slightly more hoppy, as it is noble...to say the least

tricksta_p (3541) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma of sweetish grainy malt, straw, apples, sugary, metallic notes, stale hops. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and light to moderate bitter. Some noticeable alcohol. Body is medium. Not very good, just a lot of sweetish malts.

JK (5743) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2015
2008 vintage, which I did not see on the bottle until i opened it. Green bottle with a twist off cap. It is showing its age with low carbonation and moderate oxidation. Nontheless, Good caramel flavor, leather, malt that is sweet and old hops. With age this is a lot like an aged English ale. I won’t blame Stiegl for the age, but I will blame them for the green bottle. I would be happy to give it another try. I enjoyed sipping on it as it is, but I am sure it would be vastly different when fresh.

Saeglopur (1699) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 9, 2014
Draught at Centimeter II, Vienna.
Dark golden, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head, that dissipates quickly.
Quite light aroma of grains, honey, herbs.
Tastes of honey, bread, grains, grass, herbs, citrus, alcohol.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter-sweet, a bit dry, with citrus, herbs and grass.

Nice! A good example of this style, that isn’t special, but quaffable and with a nice creaminess. The sweet honey and bready malts and the subtle citrus notes are enjoyable and in a good balance.

16erBlech (412) - Burgenland, AUSTRIA - DEC 1, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2015 0,5l bottle. Adventtime is Bocktime. So lets celebrate the first Adventsunday with a Stieglbock 2014. First of all, the amber color looks great. The taste is malty, sweet and little bitter. Overall a good and refreshing beer. Rerate with 2015 version: Again my first Bock in this season. And again a fine one. Spicy.

Sweet malty. Light and no head. Sweet cornlike. Nothing special, but good decent beer.
