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

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (bread, caramel, molasses), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a light note of honey. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. I’ve had better samples, but the most recent two have been pretty unremarkable.

jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Deep amber body, clear. Creamy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Sweet, malty aroma to match the flavor. Notes of thicky, sticky caramel, raisin, plum, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Lots of sweetness in this beer, more so than the average doppelbock. But it is not cloying.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2009
500ml bottle. Amber-brown color. Rugged sherry old school strong beer aroma. I’d have to guess the bottle is old. It tastes faded. Some sugary dark fruit flavor, quite fruity and pungent. Caramel rum warming aftertaste. Certainly below par for a German Doppelbock. A little harsh, in an antiquated way.

beastiefan2k (2274) - 2nd City (formely NYC & KS), Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
American import bottle, not the one pictured. Pours a clear reddish dark copper color. Some carbonation bubbles are visible. The head is initially small and with a bit of time it completely disappears. Aroma is strong with a sticky sweet malts and some alcohol. The flavor is similar in the sweet malts and alcohol but also a bit of green leaf (not hops) in there, its a quality I find in other doppelbocks. Leaves a sweet aftertaste. A pretty drinkable brew despite the sweetness. But I would like it to be bettered attenuated with a bit more lagering. The alcohol is still apparent despite the sweetness in front. I like it and can return to it under the right circumstances. The final pour makes a thicker head.
500mL flip-top bottle, no date (the actual date box is just empty) in a Selins Grove 10th Anniversary goblet.

thirdeye11 (5390) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 11, 2009
( 500ml flip-top bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours amber with no bubbles. Nose of light alcohol, corn. Taste is buttery, lightly hoppy, but overall too syrupy and sweet even for a malthead like me.

PorterPounder (5190) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Honolulu, Hi. - Whole Foods - ceramic swing-top pop 500 ml bottle. Dark orange to brown murky pour with a sticky white head that leaves good lacing. Rib-sticking aroma with some sherry accents, some maple syrup, dates and raisins. Flavor matches the aroma in its full-bodiness - sticky caramel, dates, maple syrup. a hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel is rib sticking and thick. Very decent dopplebock - odd drinking one in Hawaii - but hey - it looked good and one I had not rated yet.
