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

PapaSkeetSkeet (1004) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Hazy light brown with 2 mm of fine dusty tan head that fades at a moderate-to-quick rate. Aroma is lot’s of medium-darkness caramel with a light sap and hint of earth. Bread, raisin. Body is medium, oily, fine and light carbonation with little burn. Flavor is caramel, some grass and sap, oat cookie, light bitterness. A decent doppelbock. No complaints, maybe not up to par with the exceptional melanoidin component of the Korbinian, but a notch below with now flaws.
