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

SaintMatty (5095) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2010
500ml Bottle - Brown with red tinges and a foamy head. Malty aroma with raisins, caramel and some slightly roasted elements. Fruity and slightly roasted taste with spicy malt. The fruity and roasted elements linger in the finish.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - APR 24, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber with a medium off-white head. Strong notes of caramel, toffee and alcohol which carry over to the flavour. Sweet and boozy through to the finish. Not the best doppelbock.

mross (169) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 15, 2010
Bottle. Dark brownish red with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, honey, bread and alcohol. Sweet roasted malt, caramel/toffee and breadish in flavour. Quite boozy. Balance just doesn’t seem quite there. Short and non-lingering, dry finish. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

thornecb (4308) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2010
Pours light mahogany into a stem glass. Off-white head recedes leaving spot lacing to skim surface. Toasted malt aromas. Sweet aged malt and pit fruit upfront turning dry in the lasting sweet alcohol finish.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2013 Bottle. Relatively subdued aroma. Handsome brew: deep red, big lacing golden cream. Strong port fruityness, roast, light smoke. Chewy body, solid on the palate, slightly sticky. Roast and chocolate covered cherrie in the aftertaste.

bhensonb (10736) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Swingtop from Ledgers Liquors. Pours clear amber/copper with a decent foamy/bubbly beige/tan head. Very fresh roasted malt with a brown sugar aspect. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is dark and bready with some mild grassiness - more like bread with treacle over all. It gets a bit more spicey/grassy with time. The finish goes even more towards treacle. Pretty tasty stuff. Definitely not a lawnmower beer.

suorama (34) - Kangasala, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2010
Creamy beige head. Malty grainy aroma what reminds bread. Hints of anis. Soft and mellow palate keeps drinking on. Taste gives medium sweet and soft malts. littlebit roast and bit a alcohol.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2010
Bottled 50cl. Beautiful ruby appearance. Very subtle malt accented nose where asparagus, caramel, candy sugar, very faint papaya and pumernickel show up. Sweet nutty taste with hints of pumpernickel. Sticky lace. Some mothballs sneaking in. Smooth and very drinkable. Full bodied. Low bitterness. Good malt profile. Decent lacework. Possibly slightly oxidized. Some residual sugars in the finish which is reminiscent of walnuts. Definitely a quality doppelbock.
