Mit 6,8 % Vol.Alkohol ist der Kuenringer Festbock das stärkste Bier aus der Privatbrauerei Zwettl. Das Starkbier wird hauptsächlich zu Festtagen getrunken. Das satte Honiggelb des Kuenringer Festbock schimmert golden. Es hat eine süße Nase und ist satt und würzig im Antrunk. Der ausgeprägte Hopfengeschmack erinnert an Kiwi. Cremig am Gaumen, hat es noch im Abgang einen intensiv herben Ton.

nimbleprop (6338) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2013
50cl bottle at Krah Krah in Vienna. Pours a slightly hazy gold with some creamy white head. Nose of over ripe fruit, soggy white bread, a little wet trash, some booze. Flavor is overly sweet, candy, tropical fruit, a little rotting apple skin. Sticky finish. All over the place.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle. Medium clear golden, average white head, no lace. Aroma is sweet and grainy, maybe a little toasty. Sweet popcorn grainy flavour, lightly metallic note in the mildly bitter finish. Not harsh (kind of a back-handed compliment there), but really simple and not my favourite flavour profile to begin with. Just okay for me.

pintbypint (3070) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2012
330ml green bottle. Yellow colour, white foamy head. Lots of sweet grain aromas, some grass. Grains and grass are also featured strongly in the taste - grain sweetness, bready, contrasting grassy bitterness. Aftertaste is slightly metallic and grassy, alcohol comes out. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Somewhat enjoyable.

Bottle. Light crisp gold with thin white head. Moderate malt liquor aroma. Grain and alcohol. Flavour has some light sweetness, strong grain and much less alcohol than expected.
