Hofstetten Granitbock pours clean, brilliant brown under a rocky 2” light tan tinted white foam cap. The nose is all bread and malt with some kettle sugars and no hops. The palate is rich dark bread, sweet malt, and dark sugars and a suggestion of toffee with long lingering malt flavors and a touch of hop bitterness on the finish. This is a very rich, creamy, smooth and full bodied beer with medium carbonation.

Nice head to start, but quickly dissipates. Dark, Sweet, reminiscent of a fine Belgian abbey ale, but this is german all the way. Big flavors of raisins, caramel, and black strap molasses. As a doppelbock, it's got the appearance of a porter but the mouthfeel of a much lighter beer. The sweetness creates a slight syrupy quality.

Clear brown colored beer with next to no head formation.

Smells sweet. Scents of malt nuts and grass. Fair scent of molasses. Smells fairly woody and has a strong tea aroma.

Starts out sweet with a taste of tobacco. Medium level of bitterness and some nuts, it has a very clean finish for the style.

Mouthfeel is good.

Tasty and user friendly Bock beer this is worth a taste.

This was a hazy chestnut brown, it poured with a small off-white head. It smells of molasdes, raisins, sweet bread, and some roasty cocoa. I kinda get some boozy fruitcake.

This doesn't quite deliver what the smell promises. Sweet fruitcake up front a drier, roasty cocoa finish that is a bit chalky. Silky smooth body.

Pretty good doppelbock, not one I'd revisit though.
