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

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Deep caramel, reddish hued, thin foamy light beige head, sparce lacing.   Huge semi-sweet bready aroma, with dark pitted fruit and nuts.   Very bready on the tongue, malty, semi-sweet, some molasses and even a bit of dull sweetened toffee.   This one is very meaty.   Full bodied, fairly thick mouthfeel.   This is a fairly big Doppel Bock from start to finish.   Bready, fruity, moderate sweetness, and certainly big.   Good heavy example.

500ml flip top bottle, sampled in a Gulden Draak tulip, this Doppelbock had a clear ruby-red pour with dark bronze color at the sides of the glass and made a one to two finger off-white head, the glass was full of streaming bubbles, and left small spots and rings of lacing on the glass, I found no sediment in the bottle, the aromas were a mixture of some dark fruit – fig and date with a little dried cherry here and there, toasted malt, chocolate and dark sweet bread with faint caramel, flavors were dried fruit (same as the aroma), dark bread, some caramel, toasted malt and a little chocolate, it was drying after the finish with just a touch of bitterness, the drink starts with a little bread and fruit sweetness but ends dry after the finish, the mouth feel was more than medium and presented a nice creamy feel on the palate, a very nice drink, I would recommend.
