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.

anstei (2126) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. A pretty average but still nice Doppelbock. Mostly on the caramel side of the spectrum. Thus pretty sweet, actually rather a bit too much.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Dark ruby color without foam. The smell has a sweet malty touch which is quite round. The taste is very sweet and alcoholic with a calm and heavy malt character. The aftertaste is insanely smooth.

Beautiful black-brown color with tan head. Aroma is sweet malts and caramel, molasses, toffee. Taste is the same, with a silky mouthfeel, a nice sweetness and a not too strong booziness. Its a little bit too malty, but still very good.
