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

@ 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.
