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

Aroma deep roasty malts. Some rich caramel and fig here. Taste is rich malts that are very sweet with dunkel characteristics. No real hop presence. Appearance is a clear dark brown with a thin lace head that retains poorly.

@ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Hazy ruby mahogany with a 2" head that lasts until midway through the glass, thin streaks of lace. Taste is dark roasted malt with light spices in the palate, moving on to very light bittering in the finish. A fairly straightforward brew, but pleasant to drink.

The orange stripe across the label, not present on the label of the other beers of this brewery, shows it’s something special. Dark brown and clear, smallish head, some of it is durable. Deep malty smell but also hinting at the higher alcohol percentage. Starts out rather sweet, heavily malty, coffee, chocolate, slightly roasty. Very deep and complex malt aroma, nice. Only soft carbonation but not as flat as I’m used to from other Doppelbocks. Still malty in the finish. Alcohol is not very present. Very enjoyable Doppelbock.
