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

BillKismet (3407) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Gorgeous dunkel-malted amber hue with a melanoidin underpinning. Well carbonated and topped with a well proportioned tanned cream head. Dusty melanoidin cider-malted aroma with some malt-ball. The flavor similarly accentuates the malt-ball and cider character. Dusty, aged malting. Sweet cider malt finish. Bountiful melanoidins and dark fruitiness. Bready caramel cider finish.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2011
The upshot of this beer is that is is still good, but maybe too raw, fresh, separated in the kinds of flavors. Not at all subtle, and in my opinion of 6 bottled beers from this brewery not typical either - these beers are flavorful, natural, and meld together well. Also, it would be better with less alcohol. Not nearly as good as the Andechser I had in Berlin. The aroma was good initially but gets fusels soon: alcohol, a touch of varnish, a big part of an otherwise good aroma of sweet molasses with earthiness and big spice (think a broader-spectrum mix of cinnamon and clove). Flavor is pepper and clove, then more "regular" dopple-caramel. The flavor is intense and better than the aroma for sure, although a bit one-dimensional in the spicing. The spice affects even your lips. I have to try this with some kinds of aged Swiss or aged Gouda - it may react in a cool way. Best before August 3, 2011, so very fresh. Bottle from Piwoteka, of course. Great store.

marcus (6988) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours dark copper with a generous beige head and a spicy aroma. There is a thick bready malt flavor, starting off sweet then turning more bitter at the finish. Pretty tasty.

suurjuust (1361) - ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2010
Darkish amber with beige head. Fruity aroma with strong banana notes and some malt. The taste begins somewhat mild, builds up to burned sugar, malts and some spice hints. The aftertaste is pleasantly roasted and spicy. A good beer.

jfb (4250) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2010
(bottle) pours a clear copper colour with a frothy off-white head. almost pungent aroma of sweet dark fruits and tobacco, with notes of roasted grainy malts, peanuts and herbal hops. flavour is the same, with a slightly alcoholic astringent bitter finish. heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

thirstyrabbit (1254) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle. Mahogany body, good head. Aroma has malt and dried fruit. The full-bodied malty taste is simple yet satisfying. Nice with food, too alcoholic for "just drinking".

fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Poured dark brownish amber, caramel, dark fruits, nutty, little maple, little bready, slight apple.

Hair6a11 (1394) - 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 (8343) - 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.

JohnnyJ (4673) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Bottle. Copper pour, white head. Sweet malts, chewy fruit bread, caramel, and lightly nutty. Meh, okay.
