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

hawthorne00 (3453) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark reddish amber with a good coat of beige head. Aroma of singed toffee, bread, prunes, raisins. Low carbonation, slightly syrupy. Fairly sweet with toffee and dried fruit, vanilla. Bitterness creeps in at the end to clean up nicely and there’s modest spice at the end too. No heat at all from the alcohol. Not a lot of personality, but powerful and tidy.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. I brought this. Mid to dark brown and almost clear. A small beige head. I am not sure what is being smelled. Toffee? Fruit and butterscotch. Wheat and cocoa flavors are nice but not big. Alcohol flavor. A nice beer, actually.

Pours clear red amber with a small, frothy, off-white head. Fizzes a bit. Aroma has caramel, light sugary, mild toasted, softly vinious, light grassy. Medium to high carbonation, lovely light and pretty creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is delicious and balanced, fat caramel, toasted, vinious, light warming. Soft red berries, a hint of chocolate. Fine vinious and softly bitter finish. Very good doppelbock.
