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.

330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, dirty brown with a yellow-beige, quickly disappearing head - some floating particles. Intense aroma of sweet malts, molasses, mead, overripe dark fruits, some alcohol. Medium to full body with a low carbonation. Light to medium bitterness with a (surprisingly) low to medium sweetness - nice. The flavor is malty - breadish, quiet tart, licorice, black berries, apples with a quite dry finish. Well balanced tasty Bock.

0.33 l bottle from ’Biertraum.de’, best before February 2019 (should be bottled three years before). Clear, dark red with a thin, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, raisins, blackberry, treacle and some dark honey. Moderately sweet, malty, a bit fruity and slightly roasty taste of caramel, raisins, dark chocolate and toasted nuts, followed by a short, slightly bitter, minimally herbal finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Quite nice, not too intense but round and pleasant.
