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

Foerdifuxx (220) - Franconia, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2015
Pours a clear dark ruby-red colour (cherrywood) with a small off-white, not very long lasting head. Aromas of roasted malt, grain, alcohol and nice sweet fruits (cherry). Flavours of herbal hops, nice toast and caramel. Keeps his fruitiness. Well balanced sweet and bitter finish. Actually very drinkable, suprisingly light body for a 8% beer. soft carbonation. Good one!

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle, traded with McTapps and MichaelAwesome, thanks! Toast, caramel, nuts and dried fruit in the aroma. Not really sweet for the style, balanced. A bit too well attenuated, hence somewhat lacking in terms of body. On the other hand - given its parameters, it’s impressive how they managed to hide the alcohol. Easy drinkable, with additional notes of chocolate and marzipan in the flavour. Tasty.

bartlebier (3428) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2015
50cl bulky Bruderbottle bb06/2015, love this brewery’s mock-historical label design. Fresh yeast-quickened nose full of plum mousse, raisins, brown bread crust, marzipan. Drinks far easier than its whopping 8+% while typically offering more unilateral, but quality substance than layered subtlety in return: earthy, leathery malt roast, caramel on sundried tomato, brown bread, wild honey, fennel - at least a headstrong mix of sweet and savoury only found in the better specimens of this heavyhanded style. Makes sense in the right gastronomic context, or in lieu of it.

fezzy (105) - California, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Great thick, bready nose on this cloudy ruby red-brown brew. Some of the breadiness gets lost on fairly strong spicing and bock yeast notes on the palate. A warm raisiney fruitiness lingers as the brew warms. A well-done basic doppelbock.

Bottle from backlog notes. Pours a dark reddish amber color with a large off white head. The aroma caramel malts,some apple and dark fruits, with mild roastiness. The flavor has caramel malts, some spicy hops, a mild roasted character, hints of molasses, raisins. Medium full bodied, decent enough.
