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.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2010
500ml bottle poured into a lager glass. HG looks like a good bock, being brown with a tint of red. The head is a little thin though. The aroma is nicely sweet with floral touches, raisins and alcohol. Umm bock! It has that dark fruit and alcohol flavor so inherent to the style. The body is a tad thin but not detrimentaly so. The finish is a sweet and syrupy.

bulldogops (2486) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
Rating #2395 - 2016.03.28 - Bottle 2/5 in the forgotten box. Dark brown pour with a tan head that fades fairly slowly. Mild-medium carbonation. Aroma is coffee, hint of toffee and roasted malt. Taste is a little earth, wheat, mild smoke, and just super walnutty.

Cristobal37 (908) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 29, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2017 Dark brown with a thin layer of head. Sweet burned sugar, caramel and hawaiian bread. Nice long lasting sweet malts. Some fortification is apparent, but this isn?t boozy whatsoever. My German sucks but I think this is a steinbier, where hot stones are used during brewing. The caramel is definitely there but the ash or soot is not so noticeable. Really nice and worth trying.

PowY (445) - AUSTRIA - JAN 1, 2017
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.

Zlotta (2612) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2016
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.
