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

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Fairly clear coppery red pour with a creamy beige head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Sweet malty nose has notes of toffee, dates, chocolate, nuts and raisins. Flavour is pretty similar, a little more roasty and the fruitiness takes a backseat to the nutty malt overtones. Alcohol is well hidden but the sweetness becomes a bit overbearing. Medium to light bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish. Rather simplistic overall and somewhat unbalanced in favour of malty sweetness. Drinkable but not the best example of this style.

madquacker (1031) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2012
Prune and sweet raisens. Don’t really get these beers. Big ABV is well hidden. Not a fan

from Bier-Bienne - pours a clear ruby-brown beer with a persistent beige foam; sweet malty aroma with notes of caramel and banana; full-bodied and sweet; low bitterness and long heavy sweetish caramel and malty finish - cloying

Dedollewaitor (13771) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 13, 2012
Bottle @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours ruby amber with a small creamy white head. Caramel, dark fruit , prune, grains and a whiff of alcohol. Nose promises more chewy caramel and vinousness, Smooth and full bodied. Pretty good!

hawthorne00 (2379) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark reddish amber with a good coat of beige head. Aroma of singed toffee, bread, prunes, raisins. Low carbonation, slightly syrupy. Fairly sweet with toffee and dried fruit, vanilla. Bitterness creeps in at the end to clean up nicely and there’s modest spice at the end too. No heat at all from the alcohol. Not a lot of personality, but powerful and tidy.

Strykzone (4842) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. I brought this. Mid to dark brown and almost clear. A small beige head. I am not sure what is being smelled. Toffee? Fruit and butterscotch. Wheat and cocoa flavors are nice but not big. Alcohol flavor. A nice beer, actually.

thewolf (11132) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg.de.
Pours clear red amber with a small, frothy, off-white head. Fizzes a bit. Aroma has caramel, light sugary, mild toasted, softly vinious, light grassy. Medium to high carbonation, lovely light and pretty creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is delicious and balanced, fat caramel, toasted, vinious, light warming. Soft red berries, a hint of chocolate. Fine vinious and softly bitter finish. Very good doppelbock.
