COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In der Lahnsteiner-Brauerei wird das ganze Jahr ber Bockbier, auch Starkbier genannt, gebraut. Der Schneebock ist als dunkle Variante unseres Bockbieres ganzjhrig erhltlich. Ursprnglich wurden Bockbiere gebraut, indem man ein Vollbier mit "normalem" Alkoholgehalt im Lagertank abkhlte, bis Wasser gefriert. Es bildete sich eine Eisschicht am Rand des Lagertanks. Da Alkohol einen niedrigeren Gefrierpunkt als Wasser hat, friert er nicht zusammen mit dem Wasser aus, und der Alkoholgehalt des Bieres steigt an. Durch diese Herstellungsweise wurde das fertige Bier als "Eisbock" bezeichnet. In der Lahnsteiner-Brauerei wird das Bockbier von Anfang an strker eingebraut und spter nicht mehr ausgefroren. Die Erinnerung an den "Eisbock" und der Ausschank im Winter fhrte zum heutigen Namen "Schneebock".

Erzengel (8174) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2013
Sehr süßer, intensiver Antrunk. Der Hauptteil wird malzig-süßlich-klebrig. Lakritze und süßer Kaffe. Interessante Aromen werden frei. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend und leicht herb, aber wie das ganze Bier sehr malzig-süß und klebrig. --> Sehr leckerer dunkler Bock, aber für meinen Geschmack ein kleines Bisschen zu klebrig! (Test vom 29.7.2008) --> 12,11,10,11,12,11 - 11,00

bhensonb (14482) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle from a Frankfurt airport duty free shop. Pours dark copper with a creamy beige/tan head. Aroma is malty with a little spicy hop. Med body. Its starting like a cola flavor - develops a slight hint of chocolate, and some bitter herb. Its malty, but not sweet. Finishes towards dry and bitter for me. Tasty!
