Hofstettner Sündenbock
Bananiger, leicht süßer Beginn. Hell malzig bei eher wässrigem Gesamteindruck, spritzig, süffig. Die Süße steigt an, minimal plastikartiger Hintergrund, der leider zunimmt. Nach wie vor bananig, mittellanger Nachhall. 7/9/9/9/8/9

Hofstettner Granitbock Ice
Aroma of ginger bread with tons of plum, also some dark fruitiness with some caramel and toasty back. Jet black in the glass with almost none head. Taste is semi dry with heavy ashy notes of roastiness, also some earthy hints with red dried fruity profile. Finish is bit boozy, but also deep roasty. It needs more oiliness, but I think the point has been reached.

Aroma is really faint, but I smell some hoppy background with a touch of wet malt. Clear golden in the glass with a thick white head. Taste is bready with minimal hints of grain and hoppiness. Really balanced and drinkable, but in the long run forgettable.

Ar: Tangy malt, toasty; vinous, with a hint of orange marmalade; truly rounded malt. Ap: Very, very deep red, clear; medium-small light tan head; settles into an egg white-textured ring with a sudsy cover of the center. T: Rich, treacle-like maltiness up front; clean, rum-like alcohol; brief bright hints of coffee, deep caramels, candied orange, and vanilla; bitterness is medium-low; no hop flavor; mild sweetness throughout. P: Smooth and rich; medium-full bodied; carbonation is medium-high; finishes medium-dry. O: A doppelbock with unique flavors for the style, but they all complement the backbone of deep, rich malt; full of toast and broad caramels.

Beautiful chestnut-ruby beer with a small cream-coloured head, gone in seconds. Sweet, syrupy nose, concentrated cherry aroma, fruity character. Very sweet-syrupy, yet in the best possible way. Again a very fruity character, dried fruit (dates, figs,...) and dried red fruit. Obviously very syrupy MF, thick body, perfumy aftertaste. Txs to Stef! 7/4/8/4/15

Hofstettner Granitbock
This acquisition was made, surprisingly to me in hindsight, in Montana on a trip to visit Yellowstone Park. The 16.9 oz bottle is opened and poured into my favorite small tulip tasting glass. The body is a dark brown complemented by a momentary light brown head. I take a good smell and detect grain, malt and just a hint of dark fruit. With a drink I find more of the malt, hay, cough drop, rock candy plus a small bitter finish. While I am not that familiar with doppelbocks, this beer compares favorably with Vetters 33 that I sampled a few weeks ago. A bit less sweet, perhaps the better for it.

Semmi hab, narancssárga szín, szűretlen. Illata intenzíven almás és déligyümölcsös, némi citrusos beütéssel. Sziruposan édes, déligyümölcsös, citrusos, enyhén citrushéjas, alig érezhető gyantával. Rendkívül testes, enyhén szénsavas és kesernyés, hosszú édeskés lecsengéssel. Nagyon intenzív ízvilágú, finom desszert sör, bár egy picit lehetne szárazabb.

A dark brown to black color with a beige head. Aroma on this is spot on with some chocolate, caramel, raisins, cherries, oak, and toffee. The flavor is slighty sweet but mostly sour with some red wine flavors and chocolate coming through. Some caramel and toffee in the background. The aftertaste is a balance of sweet and sour. Overall this is very good!

33cl bb07/2020 catered by my latest AT EU Swap partner, merci! - A heavy dose of sticky barley syrup and caramelised cow fodder unfortunately keeps very loyal to its doppelbock base despite the boozy eisbockification that only adds a drizzle of ripe banana caramel and air-dried plum jam over the wort. Not too boozy, packs instead a mighty barley wallop with not much taste evolution as it warms: drinks literal like high-gravity wort really with a bitter touch of cough syrup and old molasses. - Capitulated for a full 33cl. Should probably have kept this capped for a bottle share. - The base Granitbock on tap went great with chili, but this was just too much of the same heavy. Might revisit under better auspices.

Swietny lodowy mocny kozlak. Nie ma się co tu przyczepić. W smaku ogolnie (bo zaraz będzie bardziej szczegolowo) przypomina mi bardzo belgijskiego quadrupla (jakości (St. Bernardus). Piana srednia, średnio trwala, smak slodki, melasa, syrop z agawy, klonowy, daktyle, rodzynki, trochę dżemu z fig. Wszystko to zalane porto lub sherry. Tresciwe, lekko oleiste piwo uderzające do glowy niestety, ale nadmienię ze nie wyczuwalny specjalnie i nie utrudniający testowania ten toksyczny czynnik. Zapachowo jest rownie ciekawie co smakowo. A mianowicie mus orzechow laskowych z czekolada. Nutella mi się tu kojarzyla, bydyn swierzo zalany do foremek no i może pudding. Doskonale deserowe piwo, idealne do popicia sporego kesu wyśmienitego tiramisu. Polecam
