COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

AirForceHops (3101) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 2, 2013
500 ml, swing top bottle from Hunger Mountain CO-OP. Deep amber color with tiny white head. Light lace. Nose is raisins dipped in caramel malt. Flavor is figs, maybe dates and bread malt. Plum hints. A mild booziness that is not harsh. Medium in body with a syrupy texture. Nice brew and worth a buy if you want a classic example of the style.

reebtogi (4146) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass with some dark fruits. Taste is a caramel malty and raisin sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Body is medium with light carbonation. A decent doppelbock, but lacking in complexity with other doppelbocks.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 23, 2013
A - Pours a clear garnet with tan head. S - Toasted brown bread, toasted brown sugar, vanilla. T - Follows the nose - Brown bread crust, woody grain, caramel, light but earthy bitterness, some berry fruit underneath. Bready and nutty on the finish. M - Low carbonation, thin medium body. All good except for the mouthfeel was a little off. I would drink this again but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it. Serving type: bottle 12-18-2011
