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".

erickok (5629) - Leuven, - NOV 17, 2012
Creamy bubbly off white head over a dark copper, clean body. Aroma of cinnamon, cookies, rustic bready malts, brown sugar, pepper and vanilla. Really nice. Taste cant quite keep up the pace, but still a nice spicy body. Quite dry, light bitter and rough sugars in the back. Bit too much carbonation maybe, because its not as smooth and rich as I hoped. Great unique cookie aroma, tast eis just an okay bock. (50cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Oakes (16128) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle, Frankfurt Airport. Fairly rich malty aroma. Has a nice ple malt taste, though with a somewhat harsh alcohol bitterness in the finish. A little bit coarse as a result. Decent bock but not great.

Zilb (224) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - OCT 10, 2016
Bue 1 an avant DLC entre collgues dans verre en carton. Bire brune. Arme banal aprs la Martinator. Final sur le malt grill, une pointe de houblons herbacs (?) et une grande douceur.

solidfunk (8063) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 31, 2016
Certainly the best dunkler bock Ive had in frankfurt airport, and maybe the best beer. Caramelized malt and some light roast. Pours dark amber with good head and lacing. Light sweet finish with some mash malt. Hint of copper. Goes down well with this free smoked salmon at the caviar bar in terminal b. Only the best my friends.

Baalzevuv (95) - POLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Barwa rubinowa, piwo klarowne. Piana lekko beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, obfita, trwała. Koronkuje nieźle. Zapach karmelowy i alkholowy. Sporo palonych słodw, trochę wiśni. Dosyć przyjemne. W smaku zdecydowanie alkoholowe, czuć przyjemną słodycz. Goryczka trochę zalega. W zasadzie jak każde z tego browaru smakuje jakby było warzone na pł gwizdka.
