COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Um das Thema "Granit" im Bier noch mehr zu verankern, beschlossen wir 2008 erstmals ein GRANIT BOCKBIER einzubrauen, das in alten Granitsteintrögen vergoren wird. Perfekte Vorraussetzungen für ein solches Bier, bietet das Sudhaus aus dem Jahre 1929. Während der Hauptgärung in alten Granitbottichen hat das Gestein Zeit seine Geschichte an das Bier weiter zu geben. Um auf Temperatur zu kommen starten wir diesen Prozeß mit glühenden Granitzwecken. Die Steine werden über offenem Feuer erhitzt und kühlen dann schlagartig in der Würze ab. Die Bierinhaltstoffe karamellisieren und die Hefe erhält optimale Gärbedingungen. Zusätzlich wird die Hefe ganz klassisch "aufgezogen" d. h. von Kübel zu Kübel geschüttet um diese zu belüften. Dank der offenen Gärbottiche können wir die Kräusendecke abschöpfen und somit unedle Hopfenbitterstoffe entfernen. Daraus resultiert ein dunkler Bocktyp mit schönen Karamell- und Röstaromen und einem wunderbaren Hopfenbuket. Nach ausreichender Lagerung in den alten Gewölbe-kellern, ziehen wir den Bock bereits im Juli auf die Flasche, damit bis Weihnachten eine Nachreifung stattfinden kann.

Koelschtrinker (20412) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Weich malziger Antrunk mit wässrigen Schokoladennoten. Muffig, oftmals nicht ganz harmonisch. Zum Ende schmeckt die Röstmalzigkeit verbrannt, die Süße dazu unpassend. Muffiger, wenig säuerlicher Abgang. 8/7/7/6/12/6

Pours brown with an off white head. Aroma is rich caramel and ripe fruits. Flavor is lots of caramel, roast malt, raisin, and a very light bitterness.

boto (2211) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Draught @ Cambridge House; This one pours a cloudy. ruby tinged lighter brown color. There was a small tan head that leaves a little lacing. Lots of caramel malts and earthy notes to the nose. Some dark fruits down there also. Plums? Raisins? The taste is very good. It is very well balanced. Just dry, with a faint sweetness in the finish. Maybe some smokiness also. Lots of caramel malts in this one. Hints of the dark fruits. Very nice!

inbirraveritas (1578) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 10, 2011
Vörösesbarna színű főzet, kis bézs/piszkosfehér habbal, amely nálam sajnos rögtön és nyomtalanul összeesik ill. eltűnik. Illata malátás, édes, aszalt gyümölcsös. A kortyolása is az előbbieket követi, azaz az édes ízek uralják a sör elejét, mint pl. a karamell, aszalt gyümölcsök és az alkohol, melyeket a közepén határozott gyógyfüves komló fest alá. Az édes, alkoholos zamatok a melengető befejezésben is jelen vannak, viszont itt még erőteljesebben jut szóhoz a komló és enyhén pörkölt hatások is feltűnnek, amely után egy hosszan tartó, édes-pörkölt/fűszeres jellegű utóíz marad meg a szájban. Testessége szirupos, de amúgy nem nehéz a ser, fogyasztása nem telíti el az embert. Jó volt.

On tap, temporarily at Sörspecialista.hu.
Clear deep mahagony appearance with a small creamy tan head. Malty aroma, caramel and toasted grains, alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, typical bock flavor profile with a lurking toasted character. Caramel and malt, dark fruits, light vanilla with some coffee, a bit of hops in the finish. Roasted-caramel aftertaste. Nice!

Bottle 2/18/11. Pours dark brown. Nose of toffee, dark cherry, wheat, caramel malt and molasses. Taste is very grainy. Almost a sand like mouth feel. Also, tasting notes of molasses, grain, clumpy caramel malt and toffee.

freekyp (2257) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2011
A massive caramel malty aroma jumps out of my dimpled mug, laced with raisins. A thick tan raft of a head sticks around throughout the tasting leaving some light lacing behind. Equally sweet and tart, with a mouth coating oiliness, this beer stops just short of cloying, with a nice malty fade that ends in a clean finish. Hops are there for balance but are subdued. Carbonation is kept low, but enough to cleanse the palate at every gulp. An excellent example of the style, and new top pick for me.

crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
This was a new arrival at the store. 500ml bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown with a creamy, thick off-white head. It recedes decently quickly leaving a bit of lacing. The smell is really unique. It has a large dose of citrusy hops which was weird. It has a ton of fruitiness with both dark and bright fruits, maybe even strawberry. There is a dark malty scent underneath. Odd but good in the scent department. The taste is also fruity. It is slightly alcoholic. More towards the Bohemian style rather than Bavarian. There are some toasted malts and the typical doppelbock sweet maltiness. The hops are more evident in this doppelback than any other I’ve tasted. This one is odd-ball but tasty. Definitely one to look for in the late spring. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-06-2010 23:34:00

Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toast, nutty, dark fruit), light hops (earthy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of prune, dates, and maple syrup/caramelized sugar. Flavor is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, toast, nutty, dark fruit), light hops (earthy), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of prune, dates, alcohol, and maple syrup/caramelized sugar. Medium-full body, medium warmth and carbonation, low creaminess with a medium dry finish, though with some lingering sweetness.
