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

Scrapersnbeer (1531) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Aroma of musty grains, nuts and whatnot. Murky brownish tan. Heavy toffee and coffee malt tastes collide to start, bitter at the back end. Sticky and sludgy like syrup. Extra malty doppel with decent chops.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Fairly clear coppery red pour with a creamy beige head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Sweet malty nose has notes of toffee, dates, chocolate, nuts and raisins. Flavour is pretty similar, a little more roasty and the fruitiness takes a backseat to the nutty malt overtones. Alcohol is well hidden but the sweetness becomes a bit overbearing. Medium to light bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish. Rather simplistic overall and somewhat unbalanced in favour of malty sweetness. Drinkable but not the best example of this style.

Bottle @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours ruby amber with a small creamy white head. Caramel, dark fruit , prune, grains and a whiff of alcohol. Nose promises more chewy caramel and vinousness, Smooth and full bodied. Pretty good!

hawthorne00 (2942) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark reddish amber with a good coat of beige head. Aroma of singed toffee, bread, prunes, raisins. Low carbonation, slightly syrupy. Fairly sweet with toffee and dried fruit, vanilla. Bitterness creeps in at the end to clean up nicely and there’s modest spice at the end too. No heat at all from the alcohol. Not a lot of personality, but powerful and tidy.

Strykzone (5813) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. I brought this. Mid to dark brown and almost clear. A small beige head. I am not sure what is being smelled. Toffee? Fruit and butterscotch. Wheat and cocoa flavors are nice but not big. Alcohol flavor. A nice beer, actually.
