COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Um das Thema "Granit" im Bier noch mehr zu verankern, beschlossen wir 2008 erstmals ein GRANIT BOCKBIER einzubrauen, das in alten Granitsteintrgen vergoren wird. Perfekte Vorraussetzungen fr ein solches Bier, bietet das Sudhaus aus dem Jahre 1929. Whrend der Hauptgrung in alten Granitbottichen hat das Gestein Zeit seine Geschichte an das Bier weiter zu geben. Um auf Temperatur zu kommen starten wir diesen Proze mit glhenden Granitzwecken. Die Steine werden ber offenem Feuer erhitzt und khlen dann schlagartig in der Wrze ab. Die Bierinhaltstoffe karamellisieren und die Hefe erhlt optimale Grbedingungen. Zustzlich wird die Hefe ganz klassisch "aufgezogen" d. h. von Kbel zu Kbel geschttet um diese zu belften. Dank der offenen Grbottiche knnen wir die Krusendecke abschpfen und somit unedle Hopfenbitterstoffe entfernen. Daraus resultiert ein dunkler Bocktyp mit schnen Karamell- und Rstaromen und einem wunderbaren Hopfenbuket. Nach ausreichender Lagerung in den alten Gewlbe-kellern, ziehen wir den Bock bereits im Juli auf die Flasche, damit bis Weihnachten eine Nachreifung stattfinden kann.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pours a slightly dark murky amber with medium off white head. Aroma is complex notes of honey, caramel, slight mineral, toffee, and the slightest dates. Taste has a mineral character with a nice sweetness and maybe the mildest of bitter. Very smooth on the palate with a delicious finish.

brokensail (16249) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 3, 2011
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a fair amount of haziness and a couple fingers of khaki head. S: A nice caramel and toffee sweetness on the front, like a usual bock. The steinbier process/character comes through shortly after with some definite salt and iron character coming through. Finishes up with some fruits and sugar like dates, plums, and molasses. T: There is the same blend of salty and iron flavors right away, and the sweetness follows. Theres a good maltiness with some moderate caramel and molasses. However, there is not as much fruit character, though. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: My first steinbier and it was pretty interesting. I actually liked it quite a bit. Dont know if I would drink a ton of it in a sitting, but I finished my glass.

thewolf (12274) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle @ YNWA, Austria Tasting.
Pours a very lovely deep ruby red with a small, frothy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet malty, rather toasted, a hint of minerals behind it. Medium carbonation, fat and lightly oily mouthfeel. Fat malty sweet flavour, toasted caramel, light nutty, some dryness. Kinda crisp with notes of red apples. Herbal and lightly mineral-ish is the fairly dry finish. Extremely drinkable.

nickd717 (4397) - Sofia, BULGARIA - NOV 6, 2010
On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Pours hazy dark amber-brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is nice caramel malt, bready and toasty, with dark fruit hints. Flavor is caramel malt, roast, plum, fig, and then...whoa...big-time metal! Iron and rust, maybe some dirty rock. The finish kills it. Medium bodied with metal present on the mouthfeel even. Feels hard. Couldnt finish much of this. The metal is just overwhelming.
