Um das Thema "Granit" im Bier noch mehr zu verankern, beschlossen wir 2008 erstmals ein GRANIT BOCKBIER einzubrauen, das in alten Granitsteintrögen vergoren wird. Perfekte Vorraussetzungen für ein solches Bier, bietet das Sudhaus aus dem Jahre 1929. Während der Hauptgärung in alten Granitbottichen hat das Gestein Zeit seine Geschichte an das Bier weiter zu geben. Um auf Temperatur zu kommen starten wir diesen Prozeß mit glühenden Granitzwecken. Die Steine werden über offenem Feuer erhitzt und kühlen dann schlagartig in der Würze ab. Die Bierinhaltstoffe karamellisieren und die Hefe erhält optimale Gärbedingungen. Zusätzlich wird die Hefe ganz klassisch "aufgezogen" d. h. von Kübel zu Kübel geschüttet um diese zu belüften. Dank der offenen Gärbottiche können wir die Kräusendecke abschöpfen und somit unedle Hopfenbitterstoffe entfernen. Daraus resultiert ein dunkler Bocktyp mit schönen Karamell- und Röstaromen und einem wunderbaren Hopfenbuket. Nach ausreichender Lagerung in den alten Gewölbe-kellern, ziehen wir den Bock bereits im Juli auf die Flasche, damit bis Weihnachten eine Nachreifung stattfinden kann.

    A little too sweet and oddly boozy to be a favorite, but the sweet bready malt backbone was nice enough. Aroma and flavor also has some ripe fruit. It was a huge gusher, so no bonus points there. A one timer at 4.50 when Celebrator is cheaper and much much better.

    Sampled on 11/13/2009. This bock pours a medium brown color from a 50cl swing-top bottle. Medium sized, quickly dissipating, white foamy head. The aroma is bready and caramel, slightly sweet. A medium bodied bock. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are earthy. Lively carbonation. A smooth tasting, fairly sweet bock. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    A nice reddish beer with brown hints that's topped with a medium sized tan coloured head. Aroma is primarily dark malt with molasses and hops added to the mix. The flavour is a tad sweet with molasses and sweet malt followed by a bitter finish. A truly enjoyable treat
