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

(50 cl bottle) chestnut-coloured, hazy, with a beige head. Aroma is heavily malty, loads of dark bread, dried fruits/raisins, sherry, roasted. Taste is sweet. Chewy and sticky. Slightly burning finish. Not something I would want to drink often or in large quantities, but well-made.

from bottle. the bonator pours a clear, deep amber colour with a quickly disappearing minimal head. complex and sweet malty aroma of praline, caramel and ripe dark fruits marinated in alcohol. light carbonation, medium body and oily mouthfeel. sweet and roasted malt flavours all the way with hints of vanilla and nuts. long-lasting and pleasent sweet aftertaste. very decent doppelbock!

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2012
#626 Dunkelbraun mit relativ wenig Schaum. In der Nase vorwiegend malzig. Der Antrunk ist durch den Alkohol leicht bissig-würzig. Geschmacklich ausschließlich malzig und leider auch nicht komplex geraten. Gegen Ende kommt etwas Würze auf. Zum lecker Braten durchaus trinkbar; für sich allein eher ein dumpfer Bock ohne echten Tiefgang. Test vom 26.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,9,9,12,9 - 9,25

500ml bottle @ Nick’s Swiss Restaurant, Yungaburra. Pours reddish-brown with a small off white head that lingers. Aromas of fruitcake, cherries, caramel and sugar with a hint of spiciness. Rich full mouthfeel with sweet flavours and alcoholic wamth. Some spicy hop presence at the end. Enjoyed this.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - 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.

Prune and sweet raisens. Don’t really get these beers. Big ABV is well hidden. Not a fan
