COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flüssiges bricht Fasten nicht – war eine Fastenregel zu den Zeiten der Benediktinermönche in Weissenohe. Dieser verdanken wir heutzutage den Spiegelkarpfen als Fastenspeise und den kräftigen Doppelbock als flüssige Nahrung in dieser kargen Zeit. Wir haben für Sie, in dieser Tradition, unseren kräftigen Bonator als dunklen Doppelbock eingebraut, zur körperlichen und geistigen Stärkung in der „staaden“ Zeit. Ein dunkler Doppelbock, würzig und kräftig wie es die Tradition verlangt. Passend zu : Gulasch, Schäuferle, Krustenbraten, deftigen Brotzeiten und kräftigen Wildgerichten

Liquid does not break the Fast - was a rule of fasting at the times of the Benedictine monks in Weissenohe. For this, now we owe the Mirror Carp as Fasting food and the strong Doppelbock for liquid intake during this barren time. In this tradition, we have brewed for you our strong Bonator the dark Doppelbock, physically and spiritually strengthening during the "staaden" time. A dark Doppelbock, spicy and strong as the tradition requires. Suitable for: goulash, pork shoulder, roasted meat, hearty snacks and strong game dishes

inbirraveritas (1418) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 4, 2016
Bottled, 0.5 l. Clear copper/dark brown colour with a medium sized beige head on it, which leaves a thin film behind. Malty, yeasty nose. Aroma ruled by molasses escorted by dough and toast underpainted by alcohol, mouthfeel is slick to syrupy. Warming, toasty, somewhat spicy hoppy finish. Very nice Doppelbock.

Cristobal37 (534) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 22, 2015
A caramelly light bodied doppelbock. Sweet like you’d expect with that thick syrupy finish that leaves your mouth sticky with sugary malts. Makes sense that this would be what monks "ate". It’s mouthfeel is watery and thirst quenching yet it’s quite filling at the same time. I’ve had better doppelbocks that were smokier, bolder, and more characteristic, but this is still a fine example of the style.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is barley candy and caramel. Flavor is caramel, brown sugar and fruits. Finish is ash and roast. Lingering coffee notes, some booze. Light to medium body, sticky mouthfeel and weak to average carbonation.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
Rating #1279 - 10.11.2014 Bottle from the CBI Archives - about 4 months past BB date. Dark brown pour with a tan head that fades fairly slowly. Mild-medium carbonation. Aroma is coffee, hint of toffee and roasted malt. Taste is all over the map for me, yeast, wheat, mild smoke, bit of a malty boozy disaster. Will rerate fresher, or properly stored.

Grisza77 (320) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Miedziane, klarowne piwo o średniej pianie, która redukuje się do zera. Aromat słodowy plus ciemne owoce, głownie wiśnia, bardzo zbliżony go aromatu mocnych belgijskich piw. W smaku znowu słodycz i ciemne owoce, alkohol dobrze ukryty, piwo pełne, wyraźnie czuć wysoki ekstrakt. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie pierwszy doppelbock jaki w życiu piłem, więc ciężko mi o punkt odniesienia, ale piwo jest po prostu solidne bez fajerwerków, przy tej zawartości alkoholu bardzo pijalne, jak dla mnie przypomina mocne piwa belgijskie tylko goryczka jest zdecydowanie mniejsza i smak oraz aromat trochę mniej złożone.

migwell (209) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Half liter bottle poured into a dimpled stein. Nice looking deep brown dopplebock, well rounded and a bit sweet. By no means overwhelming, but rich and malty and fruity. (Note to American craft brewers: not all beer has to be overhopped and bitter to be enjoyable, give it a rest occasionally.) Nutty, bready, very filling, easy drinking... I believe that the rotund monk on the label is a warning sign for all who like this enjoyable brew. Gives the ABV as 8.2, which is assuredly well hidden.

EithCubes (5373) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Swing-top at Schmitz. Cloudy dark brown with a short beige head. Beautiful Munich-malty nose with plenty of cherry and grape, just classic DB. In the mouth it’s the same, medium sweetness over light bitterness. Loads of deep Munich, brown sugar character, slight dark bread, medium-full body, not showing much alcohol. Full malty body and a great treat (though I may be feeling generous with the score).

shrubber85 (9630) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Swing-top bottle. Molasses, raisin, caramel malt, and straw aroma. Dark orange-brown with small head. Sweet molasees, raisin, toffee malt, and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Nice body. Excellent.
