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 fasting - fasting was the rule at the times of the Benedictine monks in Weissenohe. This we now owe the mirror carp than fast food and the strong Doppelbock as liquid food in this barren time. We have for you, in this tradition, our strong brewed Bonator as dark Doppelbock, physical and spiritual strengthening in the "Staaden" time. Double Bock, a dark, spicy and strong as is the tradition requires. Suitable for: goulash, Schäuferle, Krustenbraten, hearty snacks and powerful game dishes

Hair6a11 (1319) - Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Bottle: Pours a Dark Amber/Brown - Light Off white/tan head at the top, smell is sweeter than I expected, certainly. Aroma is maple syrup, sweet breads, and figs, flavors are similar, to be certain. But first, the brew is lighter than I expected - mouthfeel is medium, i suppose. It starts a little bitter at first, like a port, with a certain breadiness, but then the sweetness comes out as well, and there is toffee or syrup, combined with dark fruits. Nice brew overall - Bottle didn’t match the artwork so I continued to question whether I was drinking this beer, but I triple checked myself. Bottle is actually a swing top, coupled with poor artwork of a jolly monk - well, whatever works.

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2010
500ml, bottle conditioned. medium-dark caramel colored body, low carbonation as in the marzen, little to no head. nose centers around haplessly sweetened grape and apple juice, with the grape flavoring and what seems like wood oil coating the mouth throughout. chewy but flabby body. horrible flavor. drainpour.

Bottle. Copper pour, white head. Sweet malts, chewy fruit bread, caramel, and lightly nutty. Meh, okay.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2010
The pour is a translucent, dark amber color with a moderate, beige, frothy head which settles to a very thin, frothy layer and leaves some frothy, lace rings. The nose is certainly bready and rich with sweet caramel, sweet rolls, some raisin, light nutmeg, and a bit of almonds. Typical doppel, the flavor carries plenty of malt richness; again very sweet caramel, honeyed rolls, candied raisins, maybe some molasses, maybe some plum, and a slight almond note. The palate is medium to full, creamy, and soft to lively. The finish is sweet with raisin, caramel, and some light almonds. Typical rich doppel which is nice, but the best of the style have a bit of complexity and depth. Very nice German example and very nice but no Celebrator.

jb (2152) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Heavy caramel nose. Also a bit of fruitiness. Appearance is cider colored with a minimal head. Taste is very doughy, chewy, graham crackers, very satisfying but very simple. I like my doppelbocks more complex and nuanced but this is still a nice beer.

notalush (4789) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2010
50cl swingtop - cloudy brown beer - a rich and creamy doppel that is sweet but never cloying - nose of caramelized sugars/toffee, raisin, date, some earthy/mustiness - very creamy body - clean sweetness, caramel, raisin, fig - some yeasty/doughiness - moderate spicy character and tartness bookend these qualities, preparing and then cleansing the palate of most of the sweetness - quite tasty.

CanIHave4Beers (3185) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Pours a beautiful deep red color with a big white head. The aroma is clean and malty with some apple and mild roastiness. There are fruity and molasses notes in there as well. The flavor is a good sticky maltiness with some spicy hops with a mild roastiness, some molasses, and a bit of alcohol. The palate is full and a little sticky but with a lively enough carbonation.

drpimento (2176) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Swing top bottle with a little pop when opened. Pretty decent traditional doppelbock, if perhaps a tad sweet. Poured with a nice foamy frothy thick light tan head and lots of lace. Aroma is roasty burnt sugar malt dark bread. Flavor is like aroma and dominated by a slightly bitter and mainly sweet character. Finish is like flavor with a bit of tang at the start. Body is thick and full with good carbonation.

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 29, 2010
500ml bottle (Stockman, Tallinn)
Very deep red, brief beige head. Rich grainy aroma, some huskiness, some sweet maltiness too. Full crisp palate, a little sweet, but nicely toffee-ey in places. Graininess prominent, as is a bit of pencil-sharpenings, alas. Some burnt plastic too. I don’t know how strong this is, but whilst there was an initial wave of alcohol, I’m not noticing it now. Remarkably refreshing doppelbock.
